Sciatica Pain

Sciatica is pain caused by irritation or compression of the sciatic nerve and is often triggered by a slipped disc. The sciatic nerve runs from the back of the pelvis and all the way down both legs, ending at the feet.


  • Sciatica can cause a mild to severe pain that radiates out from the lower back and travels down the leg to the calf

How can I manage sciatica?

Most cases of sciatica are short term and can be managed with gentle exercise, hot and cold compresses and the use of over-the-counter painkillers.
