Sciatica

Sciatica or sciatic neuritis symptoms include pain that is caused by general compression and/or irritation of one of five spinal nerve roots that give rise to each sciatic nerve or by compression or irritation of the left or right or both sciatic nerves. The pain is felt in the lower back, buttock, and/or various parts of the leg and foot. It can be acute, sub-acute, or chronic in duration. In addition to pain, which is sometimes severe, there may be numbness, muscular weakness, pins, and needles, tingling, and difficulty in moving or controlling the leg. Typically, the symptoms are only felt on one side of the body. Pain can be severe in prolonged exposure to cold weather. And AyurVAID is a pioneer in Ayurvedic Sciatica treatment in Bangalore (Karnataka), Kochi (Ernakulam, Kerala), and Kalmatia in the Himalayas (Almora, Uttarakhand) in India, offering therapeutic natural remedies for Sciatica.

Sciatica is generally caused by the compression of lumbar nerves L4 or L5 or sacral nerves S1, S2, or S3, or by compression of the sciatic nerve itself. Spinal disc herniation, Spinal Stenosis, Piriformis syndrome, Trigger points, Pregnancy, and Habits are causative factors of sciatica.

Signs and Symptoms

Sciatica pain can vary widely. It may feel like a mild tingling, dull ache, or burning sensation. In some cases, the pain is severe enough to make a person unable to move. The pain most often occurs on one side. Some people have sharp pain in one part of the leg or hip and numbness in other parts. The sensations may also be felt on the back of the calf or the sole. The affected leg may feel weak. The pain often starts slowly. Sciatica pain may get worse if:

  • After standing or sitting
