What is it?

Sciatica is the pain that radiates along the sciatic nerve, which branches from the lower back through the hips, buttocks (gluteus muscles) and down each leg. When this nerve is irritated or compressed, it causes pain known as sciatica.



  • Pain radiating from the lower back into the buttock and down the back of the leg
  • Numbness, tingling along the buttocks and leg
  • Some muscle weakness in the legs
  • Unable to sit for long periods because of the pain.


  • Tension in the muscles in the buttocks and legs
  • Sitting for long periods of time without stretching or exercising
  • When the sciatic nerve becomes pinched, irritated and compressed.
