Sciatica, also known as shooting leg pain starts in with the lower back, runs through the buttock, and radiates down the back of the leg. It is one of common conditions in the current society but there is enough help available for those who seem to be stuck or lost to the pain. Here, chiropractor in Woodbridge explaining three common reasons for shooting leg pain:

1 – Lower back pain: This pain normally begins with the lower back and it is not related to disc or spinal bones. However, gradually the pain moves through the buttock and thigh area (sciatica nerve) towards legs. Some people have injuries to their muscles and ligaments that can be another reason for sciatic nerve or lower leg pain. If you have been in an accident and experiencing continuous leg pain, getting proper accident chiropractic care is essential relieve your pain.

2 – Piriformis syndrome: Piriformis syndrome is a type of condition in which piriformis muscles located in buttock region causes intense pain. This muscle plays role in hip joint movement and stabilization. The piriformis muscle can irritate the sciatica nerve and cause pain, numbness, and tingling in the back of the leg (rectus femoris). An experienced chiropractor can help diagnosing the piriformis problem and if the leg pain is associated with it.

3 – Herniated disc: Sometimes a herniated lower back disc leads to severe leg pain. The rubbery disc lies between the spinal bones. The problem occurs when the soft center (nucleus) moves through a tougher exterior casing (annulus). People who accidently pushed more weight to their back in activities such as shoveling and plowing may experience this problem. An MRIC scan becomes necessary to know if the disc is really herniated. If disc herniation is of serious level then there may be surgical intervention needed.
