What’s the Difference Between Sciatica and a Pinched Nerve?
People often misunderstand what sciatica is versus a pinched nerve. True sciatica is actually a symptom of some form of nerve compression. This means that sciatica is the name for the pain that you feel (usually in your leg) because you have a pinch in the nerve in your lower lumbar back.

The term “sciatica” is not an actual medical diagnosis in and of itself. Rather, it’s used to describe the symptoms (chronic leg pain) of an underlying medical problem (a pinched nerve in your back). Most often, people refer to sciatica when they are experiencing leg pain. Other symptoms may include leg numbness, pain while sitting down, burning, tingling, and other types of buttocks, thigh, or calf pain.

How does a nerve in your back become pinched or compressed? Common lower back conditions that are actually the cause of your sciatica are often times lumbar herniated disc, degenerative disc disease, spondylolisthesis, or spinal stenosis. These conditions involve the discs that surround your spinal cord becoming weak or damaged. This damage then causes pressure to be placed directly on your spinal cord nerves - ultimately causing sciatica pain.

What Causes Sciatica or a Pinched Lumbar Nerve?
The most common cause of issues related to sciatica is an improper closure of the space where a canal lies between the vertebrae. This type of improper closure comes from conditions like those listed below, such as a bulging or degenerated disc. Another potential cause could be back trauma so severe that the vertebral joints become inflamed and the muscles of the back tighten up around the affected area. This type of trauma can place chronic stress around the vertebrae and cause nerve compression.

This lumbar band for both a man and woman work as a great form of treatment because it will not only compress the affected area but also work to realign and reduce inflammation. When suffering from these types of conditions it's vital your brace puts pressure on the irritated area in order to protect the tissue. This lumbar band will help create stability with the spinal column while still providing the area with pain relief.
