Pinched Nerves

A pinched nerve in your back can trigger extreme pain that runs from your lower back and down the rear of one leg running from the backside down the rear of the thigh and even into the calf and foot.

Pain from a pinched nerve may start suddenly or slowly. Generally, it is characterized by sharp, acute pain that feels a lot like an electrical shock. Moving the leg, back or other area of the body affected by the pinched nerve will often intensify this pain.

Pain from a pinched nerve may be spread uniformly along the leg, but there often are certain spots where the pain is more intense. This pain is often accompanied by numbness or a tingling sense along the sciatic nerves, the longest nerve group in the body which runs from the lower back and down the back of both legs.

Root causes of a Pinched Nerve.

A pinched nerve may arise from a process which causes pressure or inflammation of the nerve roots which make up the sciatic nerve. This pressure can be caused by a variety of factors, including a ruptured intervertebral disk, the narrowing of the bony spinal canal (known as spinal stenosis), or, in rare cases, by an infection or tumor.

The sciatic nerve is the longest and largest in the body, measuring 3/4 of an inch in diameter in adults. It starts in the sacral plexus, the network of nerves found in the lower back (lumbosacral spine).

The sciatic nerve and its divisions are what allow movement and feeling, or motor and sensory functions. in the thigh, knee, calf, ankle, foot and toes.

If your sciatic nerve is compressed, or “pinched”, it can cause pain along these pathways. This is the reason pinched nerve pain can radiate or spread to other parts of your body.

Pinched nerve pain may be brought on by a bulging or herniated disc, degenerative disc disease, piriformis syndrome, pregnancy, spinal stenosis, a spinal tumor or spinal infection, or by trauma.

Any of these conditions can apply pressure to the sciatic nerve or other related nerve roots located in your lower back. It is this compression, or pinching, that causes your pain and other signs and symptoms.
