Sciatica is a term for the pain that radiates along the sciatic nerve, running from your lower back, through your hips, and down your legs. Typically occurring on only one side of the body and most commonly happens when the sciatic nerve is compressed by something like a herniated disk or bone spur on the spine. It can also be caused by a trauma, like a sports injury or auto accident.
Symptoms Of Sciatica Can Be Painful, Troublesome, And Worsen If Left Untreated. These Typically Include:
- Tingling & Numbness in the Extremities
- Muscle Weakness
- Prickling Sensations
