Sharp Solution for that Sharp Shooting Pain

Lifting a heavy material can cause you to feel a jolt of pain on the back and sometimes on the legs. These shooting pain that travels in the lower back and down through the hip, buttocks and back of the leg should not be disregarded.  

Sciatica is most often caused by a compressed nerve in the lower spine and can be confused with general back pain. Sciatica is technically not a condition but a symptom. Some of the most common causes of sciatica is a herniated or slipped disc that can cause pressure on the never root.  

The sciatic nerve is the longest and widest nerve of the body. On each side of a person’s body, one sciatic nerve runs from the hips to the buttocks, down a leg and ending just below one knee, this nerve then branches to other nerves that proceeds down the legs into your foot then to your toes. Sciatica is not a unique case, about 40% of Americans experience this, it is a common injury to a nerve, an irritation and inflammation that leaves a pinching feeling or pressure on the lower back.  

The stabbing or electric feeling a person with sciatica feels may come and go. Most people do get better on their own with time and self-care treatments however not everyone can get lucky at skipping some treatment methods. Sciatica can be more severe in the leg compared to pain the back and the pain can intensify during long hours of sitting or standing. A sudden movement, a cough or a sneeze can also worsen the pain. 

No matter how common sciatica is some causes involves a previous injury, being overweight, jobs involving physical strength, smoking, inactive lifestyle, osteoarthritis, diabetes, lack of proper posture and most of all, aging, something all of us cannot escape from. 

Some of us don’t have the luxury to gain professional medical help and we often opt for self-care medication. Walking or light stretching can help with the pain and sometimes a hot or cold compress does the job but when the pain jolts us out of bed and compression no longer works, we go for over-the-counter painkillers.
