The Annoying Waist and Leg Pain and its Origins

Sciatic nerve pain can occur due to injury, peculiar physical labor or sitting for long periods of time such (as working in an office or driving a truck), as well as not having regular chiropractic maintenance to keep your spine in alignment. The most common cause is a herniated or slipped disc

All of these activities cause pressure on the nerve root. Chronic sciatica is characterized as persistent sciatic nerve pain that can last for two months or more. If sciatica is left untreated, it can cause permanent nerve damage that worsens pain.

Symptoms of sciatica are:

  1. Lower back pain.
  2. Pain radiating down one or both legs and feet.
  3. Your legs or feet feel weak or numb.
  4. Burning or tingling sensation in your legs and feet.
  5. Pain when standing up or sitting down for extended periods.
  6. Inability to rest your weight on one leg
  7. Sleeping in the wrong position or restless sleep.
Pain originates in the spine and radiates down the back of the leg. Although symptoms can be detected in both hips, buttocks or legs, sciatica typically affects only one side of the body.
