Sciatica (pronounced sigh-at-i-ka) is a common ailment, often affecting people who work for prolonged periods while sitting down. Sciatica, technically, is pain along the large sciatic nerve, which runs from the lumbar region down the back of each leg.
A herniated disc often causes sciatica, by putting pressure on the nerve roots that become the sciatic nerve. Although sciatica can be painful or even debilitating, it is not always permanent. In fact, about 80-90% of people with sciatica improve over time without surgery.
