Why does your leg hurt in Watertown SD

Sciatica is a condition characterized by pain going down the leg from the low back. This pain may feel deep and generally moves down the back, the outside, or the front of the leg. Onset is typically sudden following activities like heavy lifting, but it also can be experienced gradually after long periods of sitting.

About 90% of sciatica is due to a disc herniation compressing on one of the low back nerves as it exits the spinal cord. Another common cause of sciatic pain is piriformis syndrome, which occurs when the piriformis muscle spasms or shortens due to trauma, overuse, or compensation from a lack of stability in the lumbar or pelvic region.

A thorough examination, including functional testing, is required for proper diagnosis.
