“My Doctor tells me I have Sciatica”
I have heard many people reply with this exact statement after I asked them why they have come in for treatment.Fact of the matter is, many of these people do not have sciatica at all.Sciatica is the sensation of shooting, stabbing leg pain, which travels downward.Sciatica leg pain is always in the back of the thigh; however, in the lower leg it can continue down the back part of the calf, into the bottom of the foot. It can also travel in front, by the shin and onto the top of the foot.Typically, it is only on one leg but it is possible to have it in two legs.This distribution of leg pain is specific to sciatica, however many people present with pain in the front of the thigh.Regardless of what you have been told, this is not sciatica; it is usually a femoral nerve entrapment. (Please see other article on femoral nerve entrapments.)The topic of this article is what to do about true sciatica symptoms and why they have developed.

What can cause Sciatica?
There a number of true causes of sciatica and it is critical to find out the cause to assign a proper treatment plan.The most serious cause is spinal stenosis, which is a closure of the bony canal that holds the spinal cord.This closure can be caused by osteoarthritis (degenerative disc disease) or a central disc protrusion, so you might guess this is seen more often in the older population.Patients often complain of sciatica symptoms in both legs, as well as having loss of bladder and bowel function.Regardless of the cause, this is a serious condition and surgery is a definite probability.If this sounds familiar, seek medical attention as soon as possible.

Another cause of sciatica is a disc herniation in the lumbar spine or lower back.This usually occurs in middle age people which have done a lot of bending forward in their life-time.Due to this, sciatica symptoms will be worse when bending forward and better when extending back, however a medical professional will be needed to distinguish if this is the main cause of your sciatica or not.This is probably most commonly reported cause; however, I have seen firsthand this is not the true cause in many cases of sciatica.

The most common cause and least recognized by the medical world is piriformis syndrome.This small muscle is located in the buttock region and although it seems insignificant, it is a frequent site for the sciatic nerve to become entrapment.In fact, in about 15% of the population the sciatic nerve passes directly through the muscle.
