Sciatica

Sciatica is a term for the pain and symptoms that occur as a result of irritation or compression of the sciatic nerve.

This condition often occurs as a result of the natural aging and weakening of the spine over time, which can cause a disc, vertebra or joint in the lumbar (lower) spine to move out of alignment and press against the sciatic nerve, which is the longest nerve in the body. The sciatic nerve extends the length of the lower back, buttocks and legs, which means that the pain and symptoms that accompany nerve compression can travel from the lower back down into the legs and sometimes even the feet.
