Sciatica

Dr. Brooks Newton Articles

Sciatica, a condition named after the sciatic nerve is commonly found in those suffering from low back pain.

Sciatica sufferers will experience pain, numbness or burning in the leg.
  
That pain, numbness or burning sensation has three common sources:
  1. Disc herniations
  2. Arthritis/Degenerative disc disease/Spinal stenosis
  3. SI Joint dysfunction 
In this week’s video I’ll help you understand how to differentiate between these three sources, who typically suffers from these conditions, and why it’s important to know where your sciatica is coming from.
