Sciatica

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.
