About sciatica

One of the most common signs of sciatic nerve compression is pain from your lower back snaking down to your buttocks all the way to your legs. Some patients even feel pain around the hips as a result of this condition. 

sciatica symptoms

What causes sciatic pain is compression, whether from muscles or other surrounding parts of the sciatic nerve.

If the muscles surrounding the sciatic nerve are

  • inflamed
  • become tight 
  • cause spasming

it will compress the sciatic nerve, which can cause pain, discomfort, and numbness. 

Recovering From sciatica
