Sciatic Pain


Pain radiating along the sciatic nerve, which runs down one or both legs from the lower back.

Treatable by a medical professional

Usually self-diagnosable

Lab tests or imaging rarely required

Medium-term: resolves within months

It's usually caused when a herniated disc or bone spur in the spine presses on the nerve.

Pain originates in the spine and radiates down the back of the leg. Sciatica typically affects only one side of the body.

Medication for pain and physiotherapy are common treatments.
