Sciatica Relief in Ipswich

leg stretch on tableThe sciatic nerve is the largest nerve in the human body, running from the lower back, past the hips, and down each leg. Sciatica is a condition characterised by pain, numbness, or weakness along the path of this nerve. It’s a common issue, particularly among those in their 40s or 50s, and can also be a side effect of pregnancy.

Symptoms and Causes

Sciatica pain can manifest anywhere along the sciatic nerve, often felt through the entire length of the affected leg. Most people experience sciatica on only one side of the body, with symptoms ranging from mild to severe. The pain can feel like an electric shock or a deep, aching discomfort. In some cases, the affected leg and foot may also feel numb or weak.

Sciatic nerve compression or irritation can result from various factors, including herniated discs, bone spurs, or muscle tightness in the lower back or buttocks.
