What is sciatica?
Sciatica is a set of symptoms rather than a disease in itself. This clarification is important because the treatment given will depend on the underlying cause.
Sciatica is irritation of the sciatic nerve that passes down the back of each thigh. The sciatic nerve arises from the lower spine on either side and travels deep in the pelvis to the lower buttocks. From there, it passes along the back of each upper leg and divides at the knee into branches that go to the feet.
Sciatica can result from a number of causes:
What are the symptoms?
Sciatica typically causes pain that shoots down the back of one thigh or buttock. Sciatica pain is often burning, tingling or numbness on one side of the leg. Pain may also be present on one side of the buttocks. Most often, symptoms will be on one side of the body or the other.
