What is Sciatic Neuralgia?

Neuralgia refers to a damaged nerve. The sciatic nerve originates in the lower spine and travels down the back of the leg to the toes. It supplies sensation, strength and reflexes to the leg, meaning that when damaged it can cause pain, pins and needles, numbness, burning and/or tingling into the leg, ankle and foot as well as weakness of the leg muscles. Symptoms will be aggravated during lifting, straining or coughing. There are many causes of sciatic neuralgia including:

  • Lumbar Disc Herniation,
  • Degenerative changes causing Stenosis,
  • Piriformis Syndrome,
  • Spondylolisthesis,
  • Trauma, and
  • Tumorous growth causing compression of the spinal cord or nerve roots.
