What Are Back Pain and Sciatica?

Back pain is a common term used to describe pain resulting from a wide range of causes, such as an accident injury, poor posture, improper lifting, or excess body weight. Back pain can be acute (short-term) or chronic (lasting months or even years).

Sciatica is a term used to describe pain caused by irritation or compression of the sciatic nerve, the largest nerve in the human body. It causes mild to intense pain that originates in the lower back and radiates down the hips, buttocks, and legs.

Whether it is an injury in your back or a nerve compression, our NY physical therapists can provide you with specialized treatments to relieve back pain and sciatica.

What Causes Back Pain and Sciatica?

Back pain mostly results from injuries like a muscle strain or ligament sprain occurring due to poor posture, heavy lifting, or sports injuries. A herniated disc is an underlying condition that causes severe back pain and radiating pain to the thigh, leg, or foot. 

Degenerative disc diseases can also result in back pain. These age-related conditions can lead to dull, aching pain in the lower back, making it difficult to walk or stand for an extended period. Other causes of back pain include spinal stenosis, spondylolisthesis, and spondylosis.

Sciatica is caused due to an irritation or inflammation of the sciatic nerve. This irritation results from a herniated disc or bone spur that presses the sciatic nerve in the lower back, leading to pain.
