Sciatica is a medical condition that occurs when the sciatic nerve, which is the largest nerve in the body, becomes compressed or irritated.
The sciatic nerve runs from the lower back down to the legs, and when it is compressed, it can cause pain, numbness, and weakness in the affected leg. Sciatica can be caused by a variety of factors, including a herniated disk, spinal stenosis, or degenerative disk disease.
It's important to seek specialist attention if you are experiencing symptoms of sciatica, as early diagnosis and treatment can help prevent further damage and improve outcomes.
Sciatica symptoms most commonly affect the lower back and legs, particularly the buttocks and thighs.
If you have a mild to severe pain in your lower legs or back, it could be sciatica.
Sciatica can affect anyone, but it's more common in adults aged 30 to 50 years and is associated with risk factors such as herniated disk, spinal stenosis, poor posture, being overweight, physical activity, or pregnancy.
