What is Sciatica?
Low back pain is becoming the most frequent musculoskeletal condition in persons aged above 30 years. Sciatica pain is a disorder that is caused due to inflammation or compression of the supporting tissues of the sciatic nerves of the leg. Sciatica pain usually runs from the lower back to behind the legs spreading through the hip, to the back of the thigh, and the back of the calf. Pains can be felt in either one or both of the affected legs.
There are various causes of Sciatica:
- 90 percent of cases are due to a herniated (slipped) disk.
- Lumbar spinal stenosis: compression and narrowing of the spinal cord in the lower back.
- Spondylolisthesis: The disk slips forward over the vertebra below it.
- More common in jobs that require lifting heavy loads for extended periods.
- Sedentary people, sit for long periods and are physically inactive.
- Other causes: Injury within the spine, infection, etc
In many cases of sciatica, there is no single obvious factor that can be determined.
