Symptoms of Sciatica Nerve Pain:

Pain is the most common symptom of sciatica – however the exact type of pain can vary from a dull ache to more severe burning pain. Sciatic nerve pain usually affects just one side of your body. Further symptoms of sciatica include:

  • Moderate to severe pain in lower back, buttock and down your leg.
  • Numbness or weakness in your lower back, buttock, leg or feet.
  • Pain that worsens with movement; loss of movement.
  • “Pins and needles” feeling in your legs, toes or feet.
  • Loss of bowel and bladder control (due to cauda equina).

How We Treat Sciatica in North York

The most important part of sciatica treatment is deciding to do something about it! We recommend starting sciatica treatment as soon as possible to prevent your symptoms from getting worse, and to speed up the recovery process.

When you start sciatica treatment at our North York clinic, we’ll review your history of pack pain and any other contributing factors. You may be asked to walk on our toes and heels to check the strength of your calf muscles, or try raising your legs without bending your knees so we can determine the affected nerves and disks (if applicable).

From there, we’ll develop a personalized treatment plan to decrease sciatica by reducing pressure on the nerve, typically involving stretching and aerobic exercises to improve the flexibility of your muscles. Depending on the severity of your pain, we may suggest other treatment options like chiropractic care, acupuncture, and muscle relaxant medications. With our comprehensive sciatica treatment plan we’ll get you on the road to recovery in no time!
