What are the common causes of sciatica?

Sciatica can be the result of conditions that compress or irritate the sciatic nerve. In some cases, sciatica may also be caused by pregnancy, obesity, a sedentary lifestyle, or poor posture. Depending on the underlying cause, the severity of sciatica symptoms can significantly impact your quality of life.

Here are the common reasons for sciatica our massage therapists in Airdrie, AB see at Zenith Physiotherapy and Wellness:

  • Lumbar Herniated Disc: The most common cause of sciatica is a herniated disc. A herniated disc occurs when the soft, cushioning material between the vertebrae ruptures or bulges, compressing the nearby sciatic nerve.
  • Piriformis Syndrome: The piriformis muscle, located deep in the buttock region, can become tight or spasm, irritating the sciatic nerve.
  • Spondylolisthesis: This condition occurs when a vertebra in the lower spine slips forward, potentially compressing the sciatic nerve. Although rare, if the slippage progresses past a certain level, surgery is required to stabilize and prevent a worsening of the condition.
  • Sacroiliac Joint Dysfunction: Irritation or inflammation of the sacroiliac joint, where the spine meets the pelvis, can lead to sciatic-like pain.
  • Lumbar Spinal Stenosis: A narrowing of where the nerves exit the spinal canal; spinal stenosis can compress nerves, including the sciatic nerve, causing pain and discomfort similar to sciatica symptoms. Stenosis often affects both lower extremities, whereas sciatica is typically one-sided.

By understanding the common causes and engaging in holistic, evidence-based massage therapy in Airdrie, AB, you can find lasting relief and reclaim your freedom of movement.
