Sciatica is nerve pain from an injury or irritation to the sciatic nerve, which originates in your buttock/gluteal area. The sciatic nerve is the longest and thickest (almost finger-width) nerve in the body.
If you have “sciatica," you experience mild to severe pain anywhere along the path of the sciatic nerve – that is, anywhere from the lower back, through the hips, buttocks, and/or down your legs. It can also cause muscle weakness in your leg and foot, numbness in your leg, and an unpleasant tingling pins-and-needles sensation in your leg, foot, and toes.
What are the symptoms?
People describe sciatica pain in different ways, depending on its cause.
Some people describe the pain as sharp, shooting pain.
Others describe this pain as “burning,” "electric” or “stabbing.”
What causes sciatica?
Dehydrated disks: Disks act like cushions between the vertebrae of your spine. By the age of 40, most people's spinal disks begin drying out and shrinking, which allows more bone-on-bone contact between the vertebrae.
Herniation: Normal aging can cause part of your spinal disk to tear or crack. The herniation can allow the disk to bulge out, pressing on nearby tissue or a spinal nerve. This pressure can cause pain, tingling, or numbness.
Osteoarthritis: Osteoarthritis is a progressive (ongoing) condition that causes the cartilage in your joints to degenerate.
Bone spurs: When cartilage in the joints of the vertebrae in your spine starts to degenerate and bone tissue rubs directly against other bone tissue, abnormal bone growths develop along the edges of vertebrae.
Injury: If you’ve had an injury to your neck (during a fall or car accident, for example), this can accelerate the aging process.
Although most people recover fully from sciatica, often without treatment, sciatica can potentially cause permanent nerve damage. Seek immediate medical attention if you have:
Loss of feeling in the affected leg
Weakness in the affected leg
Loss of bowel or bladder function
How Homeopathy can help in the treatment of Sciatica?
The pains are relieved within a short period of treatment by the specified homeopathic medicines.
Homeopathy provides you effective relief in pain and stiffness of the cervical spine.
Homeopathic medicines reduce the inflammation of the disc and ligaments.
Homeopathic medicines are deep-acting and, hence, control the further process of degeneration. Homeopathy controls the progression of the disease and prevents further destruction of the disc and vertebrae to some extent.
Gradually, homeopathy reduces the need for painkillers. Eventually, you can stop taking painkillers.
Homeopathy is safe, non-toxic, and non-habit-forming even when taken for a long duration.
If a patient has nerve root compression, the regular use of homeopathic medicines shows improvement in the relief from tingling sensation and numbness.
Duration of treatment:
Many patients experience symptomatic relief in the initial four to six weeks. The total duration of treatment depends on various factors like:
The extent and progress of the disease: Intensity of inflammation, degeneration, and compression.
The duration of suffering.
Occupation and lifestyle of the patient.
The general health of the patient.
Any other underlying medical condition.
