Sciatica is a silent killer

And while the root problem is similar in all cases, sciatica is experienced in a variety of ways. For some the pain may be dull, for others it is sharp; some people experience it nearly constantly and others infrequently. But there are certain characteristics that can clearly help you determine whether it is sciatica that has got you down:

  • Localized pain in the back, buttocks and hips
  • Radiating pain 
  • Numbness, burning and tingling in the extremities
  • Weakness in the legs 
  • Lost range of motion
