Sciatica is one the most common conditions we see at Naperville Acupuncture Center. Sciatica is not technically a diagnosis. It is a symptom of an underlying problem.
Sciatica describes any pain or irritation caused by compression of the
sciatic nerve, including
- Constant pain in one side of the leg or buttock
- Pain worsens when sitting
- Burning, tingling, or searing pain in the leg
- Weakness, numbness, or difficulty moving the leg or foot
Some of the causes include herniated or bulging discs or piriformis syndrome.
