Have you ever experienced a sharp, sudden burning pain in the back of your leg? Chances are you have had ‘Sciatica’ which is a term used to describe a nerve pain in the leg that is caused by irritation or compression of the Sciatic nerve.
The Sciatic nerve is the largest nerve in the human body and is formed by the union of five nerve roots from the lower spine. It passes deep in the buttock and down the back of the thigh all the way to the heel and sole of the foot. The Sciatic nerve is pivotal when connecting the spinal cord with the skin, muscles of the thigh, leg, and foot.
