The Mystery of Sciatica & Back Pain
What is Sciatica?
You must have heard of the dreadful sciatica pain, anything from a little twinge to an excruciating sharp pain.
What do you think it is? Pain at the front of the leg? In the groin ? Pins and needles in the arms ?
Sciatica is a term used to describe (and often diagnose) pain at/in the leg from the buttock down (sometimes all the way down to your foot) but it is not a diagnosis.
That means that if you’ve been told you have got sciatica (and let’s imagine it’s actually sciatica, and not something else as many different nerves can be impinged) you now need to find out what is causing it.
