The most common causes of sciatica don’t involve direct injury to a sciatic nerve itself, but rather to the nerves higher in the spine that join to form the sciatic nerve.
Sciatica pain typically follows a path on one side of the body that extends from the low back to the buttock to the back of a thigh & calf.
Pain may be a mild ache or a sharp, burning pain. Sudden jolts or electric shocks are reported. Symptoms may be worse when coughing, sneezing or extended sitting. Alternately, some people may experience numbness, tingling or muscle weakness.
Sciatic treatment needs to be focused on the cause, such as a herniated disc, injury or a pinched sciatic nerve in the buttocks. Sciatica can also happen in late pregnancy as ligaments loosen & the growing baby puts indirect pressure on the sciatic nerve.
