Sciatica is medically defined as a set of symptoms, including radiating pain that can affect the back, hip, and outer side of the leg when the sciatic nerve, which runs down one or both legs from the lower back, becomes compressed due to injury or an underlying condition. Although the symptoms of sciatica can range from mild irritation to severe, disabling pain, the group of symptoms may flare up constantly for many individuals.Â
It may seem like youâ€™ve already tried all possible options to find permanent relief of your pain and discomfort caused by sciatica or other underlying low back conditions but, many individuals can achieve a pain-free lifestyle by following a few simple guidelines.
Foremost, seeking immediate medical treatment after experiencing chronic sciatica symptoms should be every individualâ€™s first course of action. Because sciatica is described as a group of symptoms rather than a single condition, itâ€™s important for a medical professional to diagnose the individualâ€™s source of pain and discomfort.
For some individuals suffering with chronic lower back pain, or sciatica, their debilitating pain may often continue for many months or even years after their first symptoms, leaving them feeling frustrated and desperate to find relief. Many individuals can achieve a pain-free lifestyle by following a few simple guidelines. For more information, please feel free to ask Dr. Jimenez or contact us at (915) 850-0900.Â
