WHAT IS SCIATICA?
Sciatica is a type of pain that runs from your lower back to your lower leg. It usually affects one side of your body at a time and may not be a constant pain. It's called sciatica because the pain is generated by the sciatic nerve, which exits the lumbar spine and runs down each leg for major muscle control and movement.
The main causes of sciatica include a misaligned or damaged vertebra, a bone spur, herniated disk, or spinal stenosis (narrowing of the spine) which places pressure on one of the sciatic nerve branches. When any one of these conditions is present, the sciatic nerve gets compressed or pinched and sends out a pain signal.
