Sciatica refers to the pain that radiates along the path of the sciatic nerve, which branches from your hips and buttocks and down each leg. Typically, sciatica affects only one side of your body.

Although the pain associated with sciatica can be severe, most cases resolve with non-operative treatments in a few weeks. People who have severe sciatica that’s associated with significant leg weakness or bowel or bladder changes might needed immediate medical help.


Pain that radiates from your lower spine to your buttock and down the back of your leg is the hallmark of sciatica. You might feel the discomfort almost anywhere along the nerve pathway.

The pain can vary widely, from a mild ache to a sharp, burning sensation or excruciating pain. Sometime it can feel like electric shock. Some people also have numbness, tingling or muscle weakness in the affected leg or foot.


Sciatica occurs when the sciatic nerve pinched, usually by a herniated disc in your spine or by an overgrowth of bone on your vertebrae. More rarely, the nerve can be compressed by a disease such as diabetes.


Although most people recover fully from sciatica, often without treatment, sciatica can potentially cause permanent nerve damage. Warning signs for severe complications of sciatica are loss of feeling in the affected leg, weakness in the affected leg and loss of bowel or bladder function.
