"Sciatica” refers to the pain that originates in the lower back and radiates down the leg which corresponds to the sciatic nerve pathway in the body. It refers to the symptom of pain rather than a specific condition, illness, or disease. Sciatica pain is often described as sharp, shooting, stabbing, burning or electric type pain. There are several medical conditions which give rise to sciatica pain, which includes: herniated or slipped disc, spinal stenosis, spondylolisthesis and other rare causes include- pyriformis syndrome (spasm of pyriformis muscle), trauma, tumour and infection in the spine.
