What Is lumbar sciatica?
Sciatica is characterized by pain radiating from the lower back down into the legs. If you are suffering from lower back pain without any pain shooting down your legs, you can read about the most typical form of lower back pain (lumbago) here.
Causes of Sciatic Nerve Pain
Pain radiating into the legs can have many different causes. For example, it may be caused by irritation of the sciatic nerve due to a herniated or prolapsed disc in your spine. Most often, it’s caused by pain from your muscles, tendons, ligaments/joints or joints in the lumbar region, lower back and/or buttocks.
