Sciatica

A few weeks back we ran a herniated/slipped disk article detailing it’s causes, symptoms and potential treatments. If you’ve missed that article, you can find it here.Today we’re going to discuss sciatica, a condition often associated with and caused by a herniated or slipped disk in the vertebrae.

Sciatica is a condition of the sciatic nerve in which the nerve is either damaged, irritated or compressed. As the sciatic nerve is the single longest and widest nerve in the human body, running from the lower back all the way down to the back of the foot, there is a fairly large area where the nerve may become irritated.

Symptoms of Sciatica include but are not limited to

  • Pain in the legs that is at it’s worst when sitting down
  • Burning/Tingling of the legs particularly at the back of the leg
  • Loss/limited range of motion of one or both legs/feet
  • A shooting pain through the leg/rear, especially when standing up

If you experience one or many of these or similar symptoms, it is important to seek treatment. Sciatica, first and foremost, is a symptom or a group of symptoms of an underlying condition, not a standalone ailment. Because of this, it must be identified and diagnosed as early as possible in order to keep the underlying condition from worsening.

Do I have Tendinitis?

Last week we talked about bursitis, a condition directly linked to the inflammation of the bursa, one that is both restrictive and painful. To keep with the inflammation discussion, this week we’re going to take a look at another similar condition that also occurs due to inflammation; tendinitis.

Tendinitis is the swelling, inflammation and irritation of the tendon. The tendon is a fibrous structure that connects the muscle to the bone, as can be seen in the following image:

Tendinitis may be caused by overuse of the tendon, usually due to repetitive motion (jumper’s or runner’s knee). It can also occur as a result of injury or aging (tendons loose elasticity with time as they are used).

Tendinitis is generally diagnosed by the area it affects (typically knee, elbow, shoulder, wrist) and may feature specific symptoms for the area in question. However, universal signs of the condition may be listed as follows

  • Pain/Tenderness along a tendon
  • Pain that worsens with activity
  • Pain next to a joint (may also be bursitis)

Untreated, tendinitis may become chronic or lead to further injury of the affected area. Thus, it is important to diagnose and treat tendinitis as soon as it occurs. Failure to do so may lead to loss of range of motion, stiffness, weakness and recurring pain. In some cases, loss of function may also occur.

If you believe that you may be experiencing a form of tendinitis, call or come by the Injury Clinic of Dallas office in Richardson.

 

 

Bursitis

Last month we have covered the basics of inflammation. If you missed that article or would like a refresher, here’s a link.

Today, we’re going to take inflammation a step further and talk a bit about a condition that inflammation may lead to, bursitis.

Picture of the Bursa, courtesy of Wikipedia.org

In the picture above, we can clearly see the bursa. The bursa is a small fluid-filled sack located in between your joints. The fluid in the bursa is very much like raw egg whites or oil. It serves to reduce friction between the joints and provides cushioning. The easiest way to simulate the bursa would be to fill a small ziplock bag with oil and rub that between your hands.  Typically, the bursa in the knee, hip, shoulder and elbow come under a lot of stress which may lead to inflammation.

The inflammation of the bursa is known as bursitis. The typical causes of bursitis include

  • Stress
  • Overuse
  • Injury
  • Repetitive motion
  • Age(As we age, the joints and tendons become less flexible and can’t tolerate as much stress)

In some cases, the cause of bursitis can’t be clearly identified and maybe a combination of factors.

No matter what the cause, bursitis is a painful condition with a lot of potential to become chronic if not properly treated. Bursitis may even lead to chronic inflammation.

  • Restricted/Lost Range of Motion, the joint becomes “frozen”
  • Pain
  • Unusual swelling at the site, sometimes accompanied by fever

If you experience any of the following symptoms in the shoulder, hip, knee, heel or elbow treatment should be considered in order to prevent re-injury and worsening of the condition. Come by the Injury Clinic of Dallas today and get your Free Consultation! Our doctors and staff would be happy to help and alleviate your pain.
