What is the difference between sciatica and a pinched nerve?
The difference between sciatica and a pinched nerve is often misunderstood. True sciatica is actually a symptom of some form of nerve compression. This means that sciatica is the name for the pain you feel (usually in your legs) because the nerves in your lower back are pinched.
The term "sciatica" is not an actual medical diagnosis by itself. Instead, it is used to describe symptoms (chronic leg pain) of an underlying medical problem (pressed nerves in the back). Most of the time, people refer to sciatica when they experience leg pain. Other symptoms may include numbness in the legs, pain when sitting, burning, tingling, and other types of hip, thigh, or calf pain.
How are the nerves in your back pinched or compressed? The common lower back conditions that actually cause sciatica are usually lumbar disc herniation, degenerative disc disease, spondylolisthesis, or spinal stenosis. These conditions involve the discs around the spinal cord becoming weak or damaged. This damage then causes pressure to be applied directly to the nerves in your spinal cord - ultimately causing sciatica.
What causes sciatica or a pinched lumbar nerve?
The most common cause of problems associated with sciatica is improper closure of the duct space between the vertebrae. This type of improper closure comes from the conditions listed below, such as a bulging or degenerated disc. Another potential cause could be that the back trauma is so severe that the vertebral joints are inflamed and the back muscles tighten around the affected area. This type of trauma can create chronic pressure around the vertebrae and cause pinched nerves.
This lumbar girdle for men and women is a great treatment modality as it not only compresses the affected area but also realigns and reduces inflammation. When subjected to these types of conditions, it is vital that your brace applies pressure to the irritated area to protect the tissue. This lumbar band will help build stability in the spine while still providing pain relief to the area.
The most common symptoms of severe sciatica:
- persistent chronic pain on one side of the buttock or leg
- Pain that worsens when sitting
- Leg pain described as tingling, numbness or burning
- severe pain that makes it difficult to stand or walk
- Conditions that cause tension in the back:
- Lumbar disc herniation
- Degenerative Disc Disease
- spinal stenosis
