Sciatica can be a mysterious condition; this condition often appears as lower back pain or pain in the buttock, which tends to move to one or both legs. But it’s Sciatic nerve compression leading to sciatica.
The pain stems from your nerves, and this pain varies in frequency and intensity. It may be severe or controllable, continuous, or temporary, with many people experiencing numbness, tingling, and burning sensations.
What Can Cause Sciatica?
Sciatica causes pain and other symptoms because of the pressure and rubbing on the sciatic nerve. This irritation of the nerve can be related to a specific injury, though many sciatica cases develop over time without any injury.
Disorders stemming from the spine like pregnancy, childbirth, tumors, lumbar spine subluxations, diabetes, and bulging or herniated discs can also cause sciatica. It can often be very confusing and worrying but shouldn’t be a cause for alarm. Whatever caused your sciatica, there is a lot we can do to help reduce the irritation on the nerve and ease your pain.
