I have Pain and Numbness in my leg, Could It Be My Back?

Leg pain can often come from our backs. The term sciatica has become common because the symptoms are seen quite often.

You see, the nerve roots exit out of the spine and branch into more and more smaller and smaller nerves.

So these nerve roots are a bundle of nerves. Nerves with a various function and controls. Some nerves may cause pain, some may only create the symptom of numbness, etc.

In your back you may have pressure on a nerve that solely communicate down the leg. You may have however one that has a lot of innervation to muscles of the lower back. Hence, this person may have back pain as well.
