What is Sciatica nerve pain?

The sciatic nerve runs from the lower back and branches out and down through the back of the legs. When the sciatic nerve becomes irritated or compressed, it often causes pain that radiates throughout the lower spine, hips, and back of the leg. Sciatica is the condition surrounding this health concern and can be caused by degenerative disc disease, a herniated disc, lumbar spinal stenosis (narrowing of the lower spine), or a tumor or other growth on the spine, among additional factors. In some cases, a sports injury, trauma, or infection may also be the source behind sciatica pain. When sciatic nerve pain interrupts your daily life, the expert physicians at Tricity Pain Associates are ready to assist.
