Back pain that travels down your leg? That electric shock sensation that causes so much discomfort? Sciatica is a term that describes irritation to the main nerve that runs down the back of your leg. Sciatica is not a diagnosis. It is a label given to pain you are feeling along that nerve. The trick is to hunt down the reason why the sciatic nerve is irritated.
How does sciatica start?
Sciatica usually starts with trauma anywhere along the nerve path. This means it could start in the lower back, buttock muscles, hamstring, calf etc. Once the nerve becomes irritated and inflamed you begin to feel the symptoms of the “sciatic pain”.
