Sciatica: What Is It?
The largest nerve in your body, the sciatic nerve, is affected by a particular form of pain called sciatica. The sciatic nerve travels from your lower back down each leg, passing through your hips and buttocks. Your lower back, hips, buttocks, and legs may experience pain, numbness, tingling, or weakness if this nerve is inflamed or compressed.
Herniated discs, spinal stenosis, degenerative disc degeneration, and even pregnancy may all contribute to sciatica. The good news is that sciatica symptoms may be managed and reduced with the use of efficient therapies.
