Sciatica is a condition diagnosed when someone is suffering from back and associated leg pain.
The sciatic nerve branches out from the lower back all the way into the feet. It is both the thickest and longest nerve in the body. Although the term “Sciatica” is commonly used, it actually does not point to the true cause of the pain which may or may not involve the sciatic nerve in the back of the upper thigh. The problem may actually be coming from somewhere else even though you feel it in this area!
WHAT CAUSES SCIATICA?
Common causes of sciatica
Possible sources of dysfunction include:
A herniated disc
Overly tight muscles
Prolonged compression of the sciatic nerve
A misaligned vertebrae
Rotated or misaligned pelvis
Sacro-iliac joint dysfunction
Whilst everyone prefers to pick out a single culprit, there is usually a combination of issues at play.
