What is Sciatica?
Sciatica can be a pain in the rear!… Literally! When a bulging or herniated disc puts damaging pressure on the sciatic nerve the pain can be unbearable! The sciatic nerve is the largest nerve in the body and travels from the center buttock directly down the back of the thigh all the way to the foot. At first, many people believe they have injured a muscle in the lower back or leg as the sciatic nerve is in close proximity to these muscles.
