Sciatica – Overview
By General Info
The nerves that leave the lower lumbar spine join together to form the large sciatic nerve, which provides sensation and controls the muscles of the lower leg. Sciatica refers to the pain felt when the sciatic nerve is irritated or pinched. This pressure or irritation on the nerve roots can interfere with the normal function of the sciatic nerve, which results in pain down the leg.
