Walking or working with pain is not the smoothest experience to share or go through. The pains resulting from your lower back, radiating to the back of your leg, is called sciatica. As you must have been told by your doctor, among other causes of sciatica is the impingement of the nerve that innervates your lower extremities. This nerve is called the sciatic nerve, and it is the largest nerve in the human body. The impingement of this nerve occurs in the lumbar region of your spinal cord. When there is an impingement or pressure, it radiates pain to your lower extremities, limits your activities of daily living, and thus reduces one’s quality of life.
Sciatica is not as bad as you might have presumed though, there are different medical approaches to it. These approaches range from surgery, depending on the cause of the pain and the severity of the condition, to prescription of various medications. But of course, theatre is not a playground. Unless very necessary, doctors advise going for conservative treatments. One such effective conservative management is the use of appropriate footwear. This is why I have taken my time to educate you on the different available footwear that can help you reduce your pain.
