What are the Symptoms of Sciatic Nerve Pain?


Sciatica nerve pain is associated with the nerve running from the lower part of the spinal cord and down the back of the leg to the foot.

What causes sciatic nerve pain? Injury to or pressure on the sciatic nerve can cause the characteristic pain of sciatica, a sharp or burning pain that radiates from the lower back or hip, possibly following the path of the sciatic nerve to the foot. Of the identifiable causes of sciatic nerve pain, lumbosacral radiculopathy and back strain are most frequently suspected.

These are common sciatic nerve pain symptoms among Commack NY patients:

  • Pain radiating through one buttock & down the back of that leg
  • Lower back pain
  • Numbness or weakness in the lower back, buttock, leg, or feet
  • Pain at the back, front and-or sides of the thigh & leg
  • Altered sensation – numbness or tingling (pins & needles)

What Causes Sciatica in Commack Patients?


Sciatica is a debilitating condition in which the patient experiences pain and/or paresthesias in the sciatic nerve distribution or an associated lumbosacral nerve root.

Patients often make the common mistake of referring to any lower back pain or radicular leg pain as sciatica. Sciatica is specific to the pain that is a direct result of sciatic nerve or sciatic nerve root pathology.

It is an important distinction to understand that most cases result from an inflammatory condition leading to an irritation of the sciatic nerve.ny condition that may structurally impact or compress the sciatic nerve may cause sciatica symptoms in Commack patients.

These are some of the most common causes:

  • A herniated or bulging lumbar intervertebral disc
  • Lumbar spinal stenosis, especially among the elderly
  • Spondylolisthesis or a relative misalignment of one vertebra to another
  • Lumbar spasm or inflammation impinging a lumbar nerve root
  • A spinal or paraspinal mass, including malignancy
