Tingling, burning, excruciating pain. That is how some people describe sciatica. This type of pain is characterized as being caused by a spine related issue.
Sciatica is described as a variety of symptoms experienced anywhere from the lower back all the way down to the ankles. The pain may originate from a single of several nerve compression conditions or injuries including a herniated disc or spinal stenosis.
The symptoms of sciatica can vary from individual to individual. Sciatica usually begins with a sharp pain in the lower back but if the root of the problem is left untreated, the pinched nerve can cause additional pain in the body.Â
Sciatica is typically caused by an underlying spinal condition. Herniated discs and pinched nerves commonly occur in individuals who do not exercise enough, but physically fit people have an equal chance of developing spinal related injuries that could lead to sciatica.
