Treating chronic sciatica in Maryland

Sciatica is pressure, or an impingement (pinching), of the nerve roots L3-S3 of the spinal cord that forms the sciatic nerve. The sciatic nerve forms outside the spine from the previously mentioned nerve roots and travels through the hip and the leg. The sciatic nerve controls the function of the leg, knee, ankle, foot, and toes so that you can move throughout your day on your feet. This impingement on the nerve roots, most commonly on L3-S1, creates pain and dysfunction within the sciatic nerve.

Risk Factors for Sciatica:

  • Obesity; excess stress placed upon the intervertebral disc.
  • Prolonged sitting; excess stress upon the low back intervertebral disc
  • Weak core; unsupported spine and intervertebral disc. See prolonged sitting above.
  • Repetitive motion; when focused to the low back, this steadily breaks down the intervertebral discs.

Causes of Sciatica:

  • Intervertebral disc herniations.
  • Vertebral bone spurs.
  • Possible tumor (which we test for).
  • Uncontrolled diabetes.
