A herniated disc is one of the most common causes of sciatica, but even little things like carrying a wallet in your back pocket can contribute to this condition. Along with a herniated disc, the most common causes of sciatica include degenerative disc disease, isthmic spondylolisthesis, lumbar spinal stenosis, piriformis syndrome, and sacroiliac joint dysfunction. No matter what the root cause is, sciatica occurs when the sciatic nerve is pinched or irritated.
