Sciatica Treatment in Tucson

Sciatica is the term that describes inflammation to your sciatic nerve, which is your body’s largest nerve. It runs all the way down one of your legs and into your foot. Because inflammation of any nerve is never a good sign, you need to determine the cause of your pain. You can wind up with sciatica if you have:

  • A ruptured or bulged disc
  • Narrowing in your spinal canal
  • Arthritis
  • Bone spurs
  • Pinched nerves
  • Tumors
  • Pregnancy due to extra pressure on the nerve

Common symptoms of sciatica are:

  • Weakness or numbness in your leg, foot, or toes
  • Radiating pain that makes walking or standing difficult
  • Burning sensations down your leg
