Back Pain affects 1 in 4 US Adults
Did you know that around 25% of US adults have experienced lower back pain in the past three months?
Sciatica, with its sharp, burning sensation, can be particularly debilitating, affecting daily activities and even reaching down to the foot. The pain comes from the sciatic nerve which extends from the lower spine, through the pelvis, and down each of your legs. The sciatic nerve is the longest and widest nerve in your body. Sciatica can be felt as sharp pain and may be accompanied by burning, stabbing or spasms or may be felt in the form of numbness, tingling, and weakness. All these symptoms are included in the term “sciatica”. Sciatica is not a specific diagnosis but rather a symptom of what is going on.
