Low back radiculopathy, also known as sciatica, can be a debilitating condition that affects your lower back and radiates down your legs. At Align Health, we understand the impact of low back radiculopathy on your daily life, and our compassionate team of healthcare professionals is committed to providing effective solutions to alleviate your pain and restore comfort and function to your lower back and legs.
Understanding Low Back Radiculopathy (Sciatica):
Low back radiculopathy occurs when the sciatic nerve, which runs from the lower back down to the legs, becomes compressed or irritated. This compression can lead to pain, numbness, tingling, and weakness in the lower back, buttocks, and legs. Common causes of low back radiculopathy include:
Herniated Disc: A bulging or herniated disc in the lower spine can press on the sciatic nerve, causing symptoms.
Spinal Stenosis: Narrowing of the spinal canal can compress the nerve roots, leading to radiculopathy.
Spondylolisthesis: When a vertebra slips out of alignment, it can impinge on the nerves and cause symptoms.
Piriformis Syndrome: The piriformis muscle, located in the buttocks, can irritate the sciatic nerve if it tightens or spasms.
