Sciatica FAQ's

What is sciatica?

The Sciatic nerve is the longest nerve in the body. It is found at the base of the spinal cord and travels down the back of both legs. Sciatica is a painful condition that's caused when the Sciatic nerve is compressed. It originates in the lower back or sacrum, and can travel down into one or both legs. There are many different reasons for Sciatica to flare up including a misaligned vertebrae, herniated or bulging discs, and pregnancy. The pain can vary in intensity, dull to sharp. Other symptoms associated with Sciatica include burning, numbness and tingling sensations, and an electric-shock type of pain traveling the length of the leg.
