5 Causes Of Sciatica Pain And Its Treatment!

MD, FIPP
Pain Management Specialist, Kolkata
5 Causes Of Sciatica Pain And Its Treatment!

The sciatic nerve spreads down the spine till the legs. The pain in this nerve can feel like sparks running down your back of leg from buttock area. Anything that puts weight on or aggravates this nerve can cause pain that shoots down the back of one butt cheek or thigh. The amount of pain can increase gradually. Sciatica may feel like a gentle ache, a sharp sensation or extreme uneasiness. Sciatica can bring feelings of shivering, numbness and weakness. 

Sitting, standing up, coughing, sneezing, lifting, or straining for a very long time, might aggravate pain. Now and then, individuals experience numbness or shivering in the leg, too. 

Some of the most regular symptoms of sciatic pain include: 

  1. Pain in the buttock and/or back of leg when sitting or walking 
  2. Hip pain 
  3. Burning sensation in the leg 
  4. Numbness or trouble moving the leg or foot 
  5. Shooting pain that makes it hard to stand up properly 

The most common causes of sciatic pain include: 

  1. Lumbar spinal stenosis (narrowing of the spinal channel in the lower back) 
  2. Degenerative disk disease (breakdown of discs, which go about as pads between the vertebrae) 
  3. Spondylolisthesis (a condition in which one vertebra slips over another) 
  4. Piriformis syndrome
  5. Muscle spasms 

How to treat: 

Visit doctor early, have a proper diagnosis. As you can see that several diseases can cause sciatica, diagnosis is very important before starting treatment. Outline of treatment: 

  1. No exercises during acute painful condition. No absolute rest is also needed. Do normal daily activities. 
  2. Medications to relieve nerve pain, like pregabalin etc. 
  3. Interventional pain management is the best way to confirm the diagnosis, relieve pain, and cure the condition.
  4. Surgery is rarely needed.

UTI is a nagging infection. It need a long term treatment. Your wife is having added disadvantage Diabetes and Rheumatoid Arthritis. Diabetes make the body prone to infection and RA alters immune-response may be due to treatment itself. You shall have to find out the right antibiotic and give a full course. Followed by some maintenance therapy for about 6 months. Before that exclusion retention of urine or bladder dysfunction is to be excluded. Blood glucose control is absolutely essential. Best adviser shall be your consultant, because he is examining your wife, what is required.

When I come back from office in evening my backbone starts paining badly why so doctor?
Go for ayurveda's panchkarma therapy - we have many option for you - kati basti (specialised panchakar, a procedure for backpains), localised massgae with herbal oils, localised medicated steam, pottali massage. Continue these procedures for atleast 15 days. Regular oiling of the joint will improve the lubrication also. These procedures will relax your back muscles and give strength to your nerves and muscles of back. Also start some yogic exercises - tadasana, dhanurasan, halasana along with these therapies. This will greatly help. Please avoid pushing / pulling heavy objects, long sittings, long two-wheeler drives. Although some herbal medicines might also help you but after proper history taking.. Please update with your valuable feedback after 15 days.\
