Get Relief from Pinched Nerve Pain in North Palm Beach, FL

A pinched nerve in your back can cause serious pain that runs from your lower back and down the rear of one leg running from the backside down the back of the thigh and even into the calf and foot.

Pain from a pinched nerve may start abruptly or gradually over time. Generally, it is characterized by sharp, acute pain that feels a lot like an electric shock. Moving the leg, back or other area of the body affected by the pinch nerve will often intensify this pain.

Pain from a pinched nerve may be spread uniformly along the leg, but there usually are certain spots where the pain is more intense. This pain is often accompanied by numbness or a tingling sensation along the sciatic nerves, the longest nerve group in the body which runs from the lower back and down the rear of both legs.

Sources of a Pinched Nerve.

A pinched nerve may result from a process which causes pressure or inflammation of the nerve roots which make up the sciatic nerve. This pressure may be triggered by a variety of factors, including a ruptured intervertebral spinal disc, the narrowing of the bony spinal canal (known as spinal stenosis), or, in rare cases, by an infection or tumor.

The sciatic nerve is the longest and biggest in the body, measuring three-quarters of an inch in diameter in adults. It starts in the sacral plexus, the system of nerves situated in the lower back (lumbosacral spine).

The sciatic nerve and its divisions are what allow movement and feeling, or motor and sensory functions. in the thigh, knee, calf, ankle, foot and toes.

If your sciatic nerve is pressed, or “pinched”, it can cause pain along these paths. This is the reason pinched nerve pain can spread or radiate to other parts of your body.

Pinched nerve pain may be brought on by a bulging or herniated disk, degenerative disk disease, piriformis disorder, pregnancy, spinal stenosis, a spinal tumor or spinal infection, or by trauma.

All of these conditions can apply pressure to the sciatic nerve or other related nerve roots located in your lower back. It is this compression, or pinching, that induces your pain and other symptoms.
