Sciatica is a symptom of a problem or medical disorder that compresses the sciatic nerve area.  The sciatic nerve is one of the largest nerves in your total body.  It begins in your low/lower back, and travels downward behind the hip joint area, through the buttocks, and along the back of each leg into the feet.

The Symptoms

Normal sciatica is often defined as symptoms that travel into one leg below the knee and sometimes into the foot on the same side.  Although that is the normal definition, back and spine pain and symptoms above the knee certainly can mimic sciatic-like symptoms.

*Bowel or bladder dysfunction (loss of control) could be a symptom of cauda equina syndrome, a very serious medical condition that requires urgent care. (CALL 911 or goto a Emergency Room)

The Accurate diagnosis

Consult an medical specialist expert, especially if sciatica develops suddenly/fast , quickly worsens, or you have a pre-existing back disorder.  An accurate diagnosis is much essential to an effective and successful treatment plan for your care.

Your medical history and physical and neurological examinations are very important.  You and your doctor or surgeon can discuss your symptoms, when they developed, and all treatments tried.  The doctor tests your many reflexes and evaluates you for muscle weakness, loss of feeling, and signs of neurological injury.

Diagnostic tests also help the doctor to determine if you have spinal nerve or canal compression.  A simple x-ray can normally reveal the effects of spinal degeneration. CT and MRI  are sensitive imaging tools that detail bone, disc and nerve structures.

A full and accurate diagnosis that starts and begins with your full medical history and physical and neurological examinations.  You and your doctor discuss your symptoms, when they developed, and treatment tried.  The doctor tests your reflexes and evaluates you for muscle weakness, loss of feeling, and signs of neurological injury.

A simple x-ray can help to rule out many different health problems.  Other diagnostic imaging studies may also include a CT or MRI series.  A MRI study is of particular use to assess nerve and/or spinal canal (cord) compression.  Your doctor from our group will explain the purpose of these and other tests about your spine pain, back pain or possible spine or back surgery.
