Pain in the area, where the sciatic nerve travels, due to the irritation of the sciatic nerve is called sciatica. The largest nerve in the body, sciatic nerve, starts from the lower back and buttocks to the feet. There are a great many people who do not wish to undergo any surgery or avoid surgery for sciatica and want the results sans surgical treatment. In order to do it, head to Dr. Arun Bhanot who provides treatment at AUM Clinics, Dwarka and Columbia Asia Hospital, Gurugram. The doctor provides both surgical and non-surgical treatment
The signals and electric currents are transmitted towards and away from the brain by the sciatic nerve in order to keep the gray-matter informed about the position and functioning of the lower limbs and helps in movement which is painless. It is usually seen that sciatica affects only one side of the body, however, it is not the case with all patients. It is the result of the compressing part of the nerve by a herniated disc or the bone spur on the spine or spinal stenosis. It is also caused by lumbar spinal stenosis, spine infection, tumors within the spine, spondylolisthesis, etc.
When the nerve becomes pinched by an overgrowth of a bone, it leads to sciatica. It results in loss of feeling and weakness in the affected leg and loss of bowel function, pain along the sciatic nerve, tingling sensation in feet and toes,
If you are the one who wants to avoid surgery for sciatica, home remedies, exercises, stretching, medications can come to your rescue. The doctor recommends walking, light stretching, hot and cold compression packs, painkillers, physical therapy, etc. If the patient does not respond well to these treatments, surgery is also done like lumbar laminectomy and discectomy.
There are some factors that add to the risk of sciatica like obesity, changes in spine due to age, diabetes, prolonged sitting, profession which requires lifting heavy weights, etc. Therefore, exercise should be done regularly in order to fend off the occurrence of sciatica. Also, good posture should be maintained by people while sitting. The body posture has a lot to do with the pain in leg, therefore, good body mechanics should be used. Lifting and twisting simultaneously should be also completely avoided.
