Sciatica refers to pain generated by irritation to the sciatic nerve, the largest and longest nerve in the body.

The pain experienced by the patient is often a sharp shooting pain, burn or ache that runs from the lower back, down the back of the leg into the foot. It can be brought on by specific movements or by sitting or standing for long periods of time.

The pain is usually initiated by a shift in lumbar spine or pelvis putting pressure on the nerve itself or on the surrounding vertebral discs causing them to bulge or herniate and then put pressure on the sciatic nerve.

With a through examination we will be able to determine exactly where the problem is coming from. Once the irritation is removed the nerve can return to functioning normally and the pain will disappear.
