Are you dealing with agonizing pain that can radiate all the way from your buttocks to your feet? How about lower back pain that can be sharp or throbbing and spreads downward?

It is very important to note that Sciatica itself is not an independent medical condition – it is a symptom of an underlying structural condition.

WHAT IS SCIATIC NERVE PAIN (AKA SCIATICA)?
There’s a small muscle in your buttocks called the “Piriformis”. In every individual, the sciatic nerve (also the largest nerve in the body) runs underneath or directly through this muscle. When this muscle gets irritated or the nerve becomes inflamed, intense pain can develop that can run the entire length of the legs. Sciatic nerve pain is usually repetitive and is most commonly felt in one leg. What makes matters worse is that many people don’t know how it developed in the first place or what they can do to prevent lower back pain from returning.
Sciatica is usually caused by lower back problems, particularly by disorders of the spine, such as a herniated disc, intervertebral disc degeneration, displacement of vertebral bones, bone spurs, joint cysts, or narrowing of the spaces between vertebral bones. These disorders can cause the compression of the spinal nerves that form the sciatic nerve, leading to inflammation, pain and numbness in the affected leg.
Sciatica pain intensity is variable. It is often continuous, severe and highly debilitating, but it can be intermittent and milder. Sciatica may also be felt as tingling, numbness, or weakness in the legs. Intense pain due to sciatica is typically described as aching, sharp, searing, burning, shooting or as electrical shocks running down the leg. It usually worsens when standing or sitting, and decreases while walking or lying down.
