Millions of adults suffer from sciatica. The symptoms associated with sciatica range across a broad spectrum. Some sufferers experience only slight annoyances while others endure debilitating and radiating leg pain and weakness. Most sciatica sufferers tend to rely on potent prescription pain medications in order to achieve some semblance of relief. Many of those medications risk dangerous side effects. Some sciatica sufferers even describe the pain-relieving benefits of the medications as not being worth the consequences of the side effects. Imagine someone willingly choosing physical pain rather than cope with the side effects of relief.
Sciatica presents as uncomfortable symptoms and sensations beginning in the low back and radiating down the large sciatic nerve in the back of either leg. The radiating sensation that travels down the leg may be described as a pain, ache, tingling, numbness, or pins and needles-type feeling. The aptly named condition originated because the pain travels down the large nerve in the back of the leg called the sciatic nerve.
