What is Sciatica?

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.
