Sciatica is nerve pain from the lower back into the lower extremity, sometimes referred to as sciatic nerve pain, resulting from irritation of the sciatic nerve. The sciatic nerve is the largest nerve in the body and begins from nerve roots in the lumbar spinal cord in the low back and extends through the buttock area to send nerve endings down the lower limb.
Sciatica causes pain as a burning sensation, numbness, or tingling radiating from the lower back and upper buttock down the back of the thigh to the back of the leg, and can radiate down below the knee.
Dr. Baremboym helped my sciatica and back pain when I thought I needed surgery. His office staff were also very pleasant and it was always easy to schedule an appointment around my schedule.
