The sciatic nerve runs down each leg from the pelvic area and is the longest nerve in the human body. This nerve provides feeling to the legs and feet as well as muscle movements in the lower extremities.
Sciatica occurs when the sciatic nerve is pinched or damaged – usually in the L5 or L1 levels of the spine. Injury to the pelvic region, compressed vertebrae, and muscle pressure can all cause damage to the nerve.
Other conditions like protruding discs, bulging discs, and herniated discs lead to the need for sciatic pain treatment.
The most common cause of sciatica pain is a bone spur placing pressure on the nerve. Often bone spurs will break with time, but in severe cases, surgery may be required.
Sciatic nerve damage is associated with tingling, numbness, weakness, and pain. Sometimes patients refer to the sensation as almost like an electric shock. These symptoms typically originate in the lower back then travel down the legs.
