What is Sciatica?

Sciatica is a term for the pain caused by compression of the sciatic nerve, which is the largest nerve in your body. Sciatica is usually caused by an underlying condition at the spine. Compression of the nerve root results in pain on the sciatic nerve, or radiating pain in the back and/or legs on one side of your body. The sciatic nerve is connected to the spinal cord, which sends signals out to many muscles and other parts of your body. This can result in pain, tingling, numbness, and other problems associated with sciatica.

How Do I Know I Should Talk to a Doctor Regarding Sciatica?

A sign of sciatica is pain that radiates to one leg and not the other. Sciatica is often accompanied by pain when bending forward or backward. If the symptoms become severe enough to the point where you find yourself unable to move, you should see a doctor right away.
