Sciatica

What is Sciatica and How It Develops

Various reasons can lead to back muscle pain or lower back pain, and Sciatica is among the top reasons back pain develops. Sciatica typically ensues in the form of sharp and or acute pain in one of the legs, this pain is established due to compression of a nerve present at the back of the patient. Normally, the individuals at risk of sciatica tend to not give importance to this uneasiness, they believe that the pain will go away on its own, just like it had appeared. Some people might think that the pain may be because of anything which doesn’t demand attention, as it may have developed simply by a minor blow to the back or an exertion to their muscle.

Paying little attention to the initial signs of sciatica will make it worse and more difficult to treat this disease. Therefore, it is essential to recognize it as soon as possible. In the earlier stages, most cases of sciatica can be taken care of with physical therapy and exercise alone. Nevertheless, it’s essential to understand that the fact that a patient’s leg hurts doesn’t mean that they suffer from sciatica, as it could be due to any other reason as well.

How To Identify Sciatica

As the medical knowledge keeps on updating, the term sciatica has now become extensively known to identify almost any pain that appears in the leg and may be related to the lower back being its source. However, it is necessary to carry out a series of tests and particularly physical movement tests to rule out if that is another type of disorder. The sciatica is related to problems in the lower back, especially lumbar herniated discs. Either by too much exertion or repetitive movements, at the back, some of the nerve roots that connect with the sciatic nerve are pinched, irritated, or compressed causing the pain to generate.

The sciatic nerve runs through both legs to the foot. It is developed in the vertebral column, at the level of the lumbar or sacral vertebrae. Based on which nerve is being affected, the patient will feel the pain only in their thigh or in the entire length of their leg (left or right). Precisely, seven nerve roots move down our legs, and any one of these nerves being distressed could lead to sciatica pain. To simplify this relationship of pain to the nerve roots present in our backs we can say that if the affected root ends at the knee, the pain will be concentrated in the thigh. On the other hand, if another nerve has its root compressed, the patient might feel the pain even in their toes. 

Sciatica And Pregnancy

Sciatica is very common during pregnancy as it affects the hormonal changes and the changes in the size of the uterus. Other symptoms may also appear like the stiffness of the muscle, decreased strength when flexing the toes, etc. It’s also quite common for the patellar reflex (in the knee) or the Achilles tendon in the foot to be affected.

Stem Cell Treatments for Sciatica

Stem cell treatments are now dealing with sciatica nerve pain as well. This means that the modernized healthcare service known as regenerative medicinal procedures is now using stem cell therapies to help the patients fight back against the painful sciatica disorder. Since, the function of the stem cells is to rejuvenate, restore, and regenerate the damaged cells, destroyed tissues, and affected organs. Stem cell therapy for sciatica can be directly beneficial to enhance the performance of the patient’s immune system. This also means that the patient can now opt for minimally invasive treatment for sciatica nerve pain, as it will be cost-effective, all-natural, and will need minimum time to recover unlike costly surgeries and demand months for recovery time, not to mention the risks associated with it.
