Sciatica is nerve pain that happens from an injury or irritation to the sciatic nerve in the lower back/buttock (hip) area. The most common cause is a hernia or slipped disk that causes pressure on the nerve root. Most people with sciatica get better on their own with time and self-care treatments.

Knowing the sciatic nerve, it is the longest and thickest (almost finger-width) nerve in the body and each side of the human body has one sciatic nerve that runs through the hips, buttocks, and down the leg, ending just below the knee. Sciatica originates in the lower back, radiates deep into the buttock, and travels down the leg and into your foot and toes.

  1. Sciatica causes pain, more like a burning sensation.
  2. Sciatica causes numbness in the back of the leg
  3. Sometimes, Sciatica only affects one leg. It feels like the leg is heavy and can’t be raised.
  4. Sciatica gets worse while sitting. Also, when you try to get up, the spine bends and it causes pain.
  5. One part of the leg can be in pain, while another part can feel numb

It is important to know that every pain in the back or leg can’t be Sciatica. It has to be linked with the Sciatica nerve.


  1. Age: Sciatica’s most common cause is age-related changes in the spine, such as herniated disks and bone spurs
  2. Obesity: Being overweight might increase the stress on the spine.
  3. Occupation: A job that makes you twist your back, carry heavy loads or drive a motor vehicle for a long period of time.
  4. Prolonged sitting: Sciatica is caused to those people who sit a lot or don’t move much are more likely.
  5. Diabetes: Sciatica affects the way the body uses blood sugar, and increases the risk of nerve damage.
