Sciatica is a condition that starts in the lower back or the buttocks and stretches into either one or both legs. Sciatica comes along with a pain that can vary in intensity, from moderate to severe, occasional to constant.
Sciatica is Synonymous with the Following Sensations:
- Shooting Pain
- Radiating Pain
Remember that sciatica is not a disorder, but simply a symptom of a disorder. Why?
Because sciatica is generally caused by compressed nerves.
Sciatic nerve compression to be exact. Disorders commonly known to promote sciatic nerve pain include:
- Herniated/Bulging Discs (Also Called Slipped Discs)
- Lumbar Spine Subluxations (Misaligned Vertebral Bodies)
- Pregnancy and Childbirth
Sciatic nerve compression can also come about from conditions that have nothing to do with the back or spine, like diabetes or constipation.
