坐骨神經痛 Sciatica  --  翁偉彬先生


坐骨神經痛不是病症而只是病徵,導致它的原因有很多,例如腰椎軟骨 (椎間盤) 移位,骨刺,腰肌發炎,椎間孔空間減少等。當坐骨神經受壓時,患者會不時感到腰痛,臀部肌肉痛,腳部疼痛甚至麻痺。

Sciatica is a pain that originates from the lower back and hip which radiate down the back of the thigh into the leg. The causes of sciatica include herniated lumbar intervertebral disc that compress and compromises the L5 and/or S1 nerve roots, osteophytes of lumbar spine, inflammation of lower back muscle and narrowing of intervertebral foramen.

Sciatica is a common occupation’s disease in Hong Kong especially for office workers and labourers because long working hours altogether and poor working posture are obvious causes for spinal degeneration.
