Sciatica

Sciatica at The Cherwell Hospital

What is sciatica?

Sciatica, also known as sciatic nerve pain or lumbar radiculopathy, is a pain that stems from the compression and/or irritation of your sciatic nerve.

Your sciatic nerve is the main nerve in your leg and runs from your lower back to your feet. When your sciatic nerve is injured or is put under pressure, pain can radiate in your lower back and spread to your hip, buttocks, and travel down your leg.

Sciatica is caused by an underlying medical condition, such as:

  • a slipped disc – happens when the soft disc cushion between your spinal bones pushes out. This is the most common cause of sciatica
  • spinal stenosis – narrowing of part of your spine where the nerve passes
  • spondylolisthesis – when a spinal bone slips out of position
  • an injury to your back.
