Sciatica is the compression or irritation of the sciatic nerve which runs from the lower back down the back of each leg. It is a symptom of an underlying health condition where its own symptoms can include: numbness, tingling, pins and needles, a dull ache, burning sensation, sharp or shooting pain and muscle weakness in either leg, hip or buttock. Sufferers may have difficulty walking distances, standing or sitting and in extreme cases can be left incapacitated. The way to combat sciatica is to find the cause and treat the cause, once the cause is treated the sciatica should in turn subside.
Sciatica can be treated with the following therapies
