What is Sciatica?

Sciatica is a real life pain in the behind! And we aren’t talking about kids, in-laws, or significant others.

This condition is typically caused by irritation, inflammation, pinching, or compression of the Sciatic Nerve as it travels from your lower back down your leg.

Sciatica is characterized by pain in the buttocks that may run all the way down your legs to your feet. Symptoms include sharp, stabbing, electric, tingling, or burning pain that may worsen with movement.

Sciatica may be caused by a bulging or “slipped” disc, narrowing of the spine or “spinal stenosis,” bone spur, poor posture, muscle weakness, or muscular imbalance.
