What is Sciatica?

Sciatica occurs when pain travels along the path of the sciatic nerve, manifesting as a pain that runs down your leg. The sciatic nerve starts from nerve roots in your lower spine, travels through your hip and buttock all the way down the back of your leg, with branches of the sciatic nerve going all the way down your foot. There is a sciatic nerve for each leg, so typically pain only manifests in one leg, unless both sciatic nerves are impacted.
