Sciatica is defined as referred pain, numbness and weakness into the leg that is coming from your back or pelvis. You may not necessarily experience all three symptoms.
The cause of sciatica can be from relatively benign issues such as muscle spasm and tightness or it can be from more aggressive causes like a disc bulge.
It is very important to seek Osteopathic advice immediately to determine what your diagnosis is, because this determines the treatment, prognosis and rehabilitation that will be most effective for you. Any time lag may lead to damage that can be difficult to reverse.
