Sciatica

Sciatica is a common condition that involves pain radiating through the lower back and all the way down to the feet. This condition may be associated with a herniated disc, spinal stenosis, tumors, trauma or infection. It can often be prevented by maintaining proper posture and exercising regularly.

Most cases of sciatica go away on their own within a few weeks. Patients can relieve pain during this time by applying ice, stretching the area and taking over-the-counter pain medication. More severe cases of sciatica may require steroid injections or surgery to relieve nerve pressure.

The sciatic nerve is the largest nerve in the body. When irritated by a herniated disk or other irritant, it will generally be felt in the lower back, buttocks, back of the thigh, calf or foot.
