Sciatica

Sciatica

In Latin it means "pain down the back of the leg". It's caused, usually but not always by the sciatic nerve becoming trapped. Your sciatic nerve runs the whole way down through your back and buttocks and all the way again on the backs of your legs. Disc issues are often associated with sciatica.

Pain from sciatica can differ in levels and severity, Usually, but now always, its' concentrated on one side of the body, so sitting down or lying down can be uncomfortable for sufferers. Sciatica usually develops between the ages of 30 and 50 and can be caused by general wear and tear, from lifting, bending or even sneezing.
