What Causes Sciatica?
Sciatica is one of the most common spinal conditions and describes pain that originates in the lower back and radiates into the buttocks, the back of the legs, and into the feet.
The sciatic nerve is the longest continuous nerve in the body, beginning in the lower back and extending into the legs.
Sciatica is a term used to describe the pain but is not an actual diagnosis and is instead a symptom of an underlying condition that is causing pressure on the sciatic nerve.
It’s very important that you schedule a consultation with a Spine Specialist to be able to diagnose and treat any underlying condition that may be causing your sciatica pain.
