Your sciatic nerve is the longest nerve in your body, running from your pelvis through your hip area and buttocks and down each leg. Your sciatic nerve branches into smaller nerves as it travels down your legs and is fundamental for providing feeling to your thighs, legs, and feet as well as controlling many of the muscles in your lower legs. Subsequently, sciatica can be a debilitating condition as it causes pain which radiates along the path of this nerve and can hinder your entire lower body.

Some of the most common causes of Sciatica include:

  • a bulging or herniated lumbar disc,

  • infection,

  • sports related injuries,

  • a growth within the spine,

  • piriformis syndrome (the piriformis is a muscle which lies directly over your sciatic nerve. If this muscle becomes tight or if you have a spasm in this muscle, it puts pressure directly on the sciatic nerve),

  • in some cases, sciatic pain in men has even been caused simply by sitting on a wallet!

What are the symptoms of Sciatica?

If you suffer from sciatica this is often a warning sign that you have an underlying nerve problem which is placing pressure on a nerve in your lower back. This will often feel like a shock and increases when you sit, cough or sneeze. Sciatic pain will often start gradually and intensify as time progresses. Therefore, if you suffer from any of the following symptoms of sciatica, it is advisable that you seek professional help:

  • Pain which radiates from your lower (lumbar) spine to your buttocks and down the back of your leg or the side of your leg - this pain may vary from mild aching to sharp, burning pain or severe discomfort,

  • numbness in your leg(s),

  • tingling in your leg(s),

  • muscle weakness in your leg(s).

Fortunately, with a combination of stretches, spine & wellness care, sciatic pain can be significantly relieved.
