What is Sciatica?

Sciatica, or sciatic neuritis as its known medically, is triggered by an irritation of the sciatic nerve which causes pain to radiate from the lower back to one or both of an individual’s legs. However, sciatica usually causes pain on one side of the body. Sciatica is a common issue, and is primarily found in people between the ages of 30-50.

The causes of sciatica are, but not limited to, the following:

• Lumbar spinal stenosis
• Pregnancy
• Scar Tissue
• Lumbar herniated disc
• Fracture
• Degenerative disc disease

Because sciatica is a common issue faced by many, treatment options do vary. The most common method of treating sciatica is non-surgical, and generally involves exercise, anti-inflammatory medication, and in some cases, physical therapy.
