what symptoms are there with a tear in the sacral nerve ?

Sacral nerve trauma: It is very unlikely to "tear" a sacral nerve without severe trauma, such as a major car accident, etc.. Most pain in the area of sacral nerve distribution is caused by muscle/tendon strain/tears and swelling thereafter, which puts presssure on the sacral nerve, shooting lower back pains into the upper and lower leg where affected. Rest and a visit with an orthopedic provider if pain continues .
