What can I do for sciatica of the leg? Pain from my hip to my toes and two of my little toes on my left foot are numb.

Sciatica: Low back, buttock and "shooting" leg pain are all symptoms of a pinched nerve. It sounds like you may have that problem. If the pain is severe and limiting your activity still, the best non-narcotic medications that I have found to work for my patients are antiinflammatories such as Ibuprofen or Naproxen which are over-the-counter medications. Other non-narcotic medications include tramadol (ultram) which requires a prescription and nerve-pain medications such as gabapentin. These are all to be taken for temporary pain relief. This type of pain typically resolves with time. Ask your primary physician about these if the pain is still limiting you. If it is still going on for more than a month an MRI may be helpful to help sort out what is going on and there could be other potential treatments outside of surgery that could benefit you. ...Read more

Sounds like sciatica: Pain radiating down the back of the leg from the hip to the knee is typically caused by sciatica.

Treatment is bedrest, warm heat, gentle stretching, and anti-inflammatory medication. ...Read more

Hip Derotation: As we develop, soft tissue changes, referred to as "version" are imposedo on the leg, as well as bony changes referred to as "torsion". Usually, intoeing from the hip (with the kneecap turned in as well) are due to a failure of femoral retrotorsion, which results in a position of antetorsion, or internal rotation of the leg. You may benefit from an orthotic called a "gait plate". ...Read more

Flexibility Issue: There are 2 reasonably unique muscles in the lower body- the hamstrings and calves (gastrocnemius). What makes them unique is that these two muscles cross 2 major joints, which makes them hard to keep stretched out. When we sit, these 2 muscles tighten. Then, when we stand to walk, we are too tight to be comfortably upright. You have got to stay loose throughout the day. Stretch 3-5x each day. ...Read more
