Sciatica refers to pain that radiates from the back to the buttocks and down the back of the legs. You may also experience numbness, muscle weakness and tingling. These symptoms originate at the sciatic nerve, which travels from the spinal cord to hip along the back of each leg.
Sciatica itself is a symptom, not a disorder. It may signal a herniated disc or other nerve problem. It can also be caused by car accidents, falls and other spinal trauma which can injure the lumbar or sacral nerve roots.
