If you are suffering from lower back pain, this may be the result of a pinched nerve. At MedAmerica in Deerfield Beach, our physical therapists will work with you on your road to recovery. We specialize in the rehabilitation of a variety of complications that arise from pinched nerves in the back. If you need sciatica pain relief, we can help!

The most common cause of sciatica is a herniated disc which puts pressure on the sciatic nerve, leading to lower back pain and pain in the upper leg.

Lower back pain caused by sciatica can be detrimental to your day-to-day life. Those suffering from complications arising from a pinched sciatic nerve often miss work and family events because the pain is so severe.

Symptoms of sciatica include the following:

  • Radiating lower back pain
  • Pain in the rear-end or upper leg that gets worse when sitting
  • Hip pain
  • Tingling and burning sensations in the leg
  • Weakness and numbness in the lower back and legs
  • Inflammation around the sciatic nerve

The causes of lower back pain and sciatica are wide-ranging and often debilitating, however, our specialists are experienced in the diagnosis and treatment of sciatica.
