Dr. Gonzales & Dr Dawne of Performance Place deep dive into Sciatica. This video is for people who want to understand Sciatica very well. Sciatica is injury or irritation to the Sciatic Nerve, a long nerve that runs from your low back to your gluteal area all the way down to the calf and foot. It can feel like tightness or sharp pain or numbness and tingling. The Sciatic nerve is formed when several nerve roots coming out of the spine travel down the leg and come together to form a bigger nerve.

Often, there can be compression in the areas where it comes out of the spine, and that can cause the symptoms. Many activities can contribute to closing the bony hole that the nerve exits out of-causing compression. Some of these are daily activities like walking, or surfing. Activities with a large amount of spinal extension, or “arching” are the types of activities that keep these holes in their most closed positions, which can lead to other problems.

An Injury to a disc in the low back can also cause irritation or compression to the nerves that make up the sciatic nerve. The discs are little, “jelly-filled” pieces of tissue in between each vertebra and are right next to the spinal nerves that become the Sciatic. When the discs are injured, the “jelly” can move out of the disc and compress the nerve nearby. Different movements tend to injure the disc. Instead of extension or “arching” being a problem, the opposite movement is a problem. Bending forward, along with compression or rotation (turning) are the movements most likely to be injurious to a disc.

These two problems are the most common causes of Sciatica. To fix it, you must determine which of these two are your problem. There are some tests in this video to help you figure out which of the two is your problem and to help you differentiate from other diagnoses, such as Piriformis Syndrome. Piriformis Syndrome is one of the most common diagnoses confused with Sciatica.

Once you have determined what the primary cause of your Sciatica is, now you have to get rid of it. We have lots of videos about exercises for Sciatica or stretches for Sciatica that you can find on our channel. But the most simple piece of advice we can give for fixing this is: “Do What Feels Good”. Remember, we are not looking for perfect, we are looking for progress.

There is a simple stretch demonstrated in this video that you can try today-and we discuss what you can do to keep it away in the long term. However you decide to treat this, make sure that you keep moving! The worst thing you can do for this condition is to let fear of movement get in the way of you physically moving your way to recovery.

Low back herniations, or lumbar herniations, are a very common injury we “fix” at Performance Place and they are the most common reason for sciatica leg pain. These injuries tend to follow similar patterns, and so we have decided to share two of the most common things that can help alleviate disc pain instantly.

Doctors Dawne and Sebastian spend some time talking about whether you can “fix” a disc or not, and what part MRI and imaging has to play in your recovery. They are the best at diagnosing the reason for your sciatica and helping you find sciatica relief quickly.

Indoor exercise says:

🙏 I think there is so many people are suffering with this problem,so many people giving suggestions and exercises to this problem but my suggestion is only don't do front bending exercises. walking, jogging, some streching exercises is enough but we should do every day with out neglect. for curing may takes months are years depends upon the patient health,and also for this problem there is so many reasons hereditary, medication,rest less works, work only by sitting, food deficiancy like so many reasons so we learn to live with this problem just like carona
