Soothe the Pain Triggered By a Pinched Nerve in Clearwater, FL

Are You a Candidate For Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression?

A pinched nerve in your back can result in severe pain that runs from your lower back and down the rear of one leg running from the backside down the rear of the thigh and even into the calf and foot.

Pain from a pinched nerve may start suddenly or slowly. Typically, it is characterized by sharp, shooting pain that feels a lot like an electric shock. Moving the leg, back or other part of the body affected by the pinch nerve will often intensify this pain.

Pain from a pinched nerve may be distributed evenly along the leg, but there often are certain spots where the pain is more intense. This pain is often followed by numbness or a tingling sensation along the sciatic nerves, the longest nerve group in the body which runs from the lower back and down the rear of both legs.

Causes of a Pinched Nerve.

A pinched nerve may arise from a process which causes pressure or irritation of the nerve roots which make up the sciatic nerve. This pressure might be triggered by a variety of factors, including things like a ruptured intervertebral disc, the narrowing of the bony spinal canal (referred to as spinal stenosis), or, in rare cases, by an infection or tumor.

The sciatic nerve is the longest and largest in the body, measuring three-quarters of an inch in diameter in adults. It starts in the sacral plexus, the web of nerves found in the lower back (lumbosacral spine).

The sciatic nerve and its divisions are what allow movement and sensation, or motor and sensory functions. in the thigh, knee, calf, ankle, foot and toes.

If your sciatic nerve is compacted, or “pinched”, it can cause pain along these pathways. This is the reason pinched nerve pain can spread or radiate to other parts of your body.

Pinched nerve pain may be triggered by a bulging or herniated disc, degenerative disk disease, piriformis disorder, pregnancy, spinal stenosis, a spinal tumor or spinal infection, or by damage.

Any one of these conditions can apply pressure to the sciatic nerve or other related nerve roots located in your lower back. It is this compression, or pinching, that creates your pain and other signs and symptoms.
