Sciatica is the intense pain caused by the irritation or compression of the sciatic nerve. It is debilitating and severe and usually affects one side of the body, from the lower back, through the buttocks, to the back of one leg.
Despite the pain, it also causes weakness and numbness in the leg and toes, burning sensation in the leg, tingling, and difficulties both, to stand up and sit down.
Its most common cause is herniated or slipped disc. Yet, sciatica may also result from spinal injury or infection, degenerative disc disease, pregnancy, spinal stenosis, piriformis syndrome, and isthmic spondylolisthesis.
There are numerous different treatments for this painful condition, but in most cases, the pain is relieved only temporarily. Also, the steroid injections which are often used cause severe adverse effects.
