Introduction

Sciatica describes the symptoms of pain, numbness, and weakness in the sciatic nerve from the lower back hips and legs. Significant problems arise due to pressure and compression of spinal nerves which irritate the nerve root.  It can occur due to the herniated disc, disc degeneration, and the pain is often described as steering, sharp or throbbing depending upon the location of compression. It is an underlying condition caused by prolonged sitting or walking activity.
