Sciatica is a medical condition that is characterized by pain that radiates from the lower back down through the buttocks and into the legs. The pain is caused by compression or irritation of the sciatic nerve, which is the largest nerve in the body.
Common symptoms of sciatica include pain, tingling, numbness, and weakness in the lower back, buttocks, and legs. The pain can range from mild to severe and can be triggered by certain activities such as sitting or standing for long periods of time.
The most common cause of sciatica is a herniated or slipped disc in the spine, which puts pressure on the sciatic nerve. Other causes may include spinal stenosis, degenerative disc disease, and injury or trauma to the spine.
Treatment options for sciatica may include medications to relieve pain and inflammation, physical therapy, and in some cases, surgery. In addition, lifestyle modifications such as maintaining good posture and regular exercise may also be helpful in managing symptoms and preventing recurrence.
