Sciatica is described as severe pain that moves along the sciatic nerve, which runs from either side of the lower spine, through the rear and back of the thigh down to the foot. Sciatic nerve pain begins with a shooting sensation in the lower back and radiates down through the legs and to the feet. The condition is brought on by a compression or pinched nerve that results in pain, tingling, numbness or inflammation. The effects of sciatica are often constant and uncomfortable, but are highly treatable.
