Sciatica Overview Sciatica Causes & Symptoms Sciatica Diagnosis & Treatments


Sciatica or sciatic pain and symptoms typically result from a pinched or compressed spinal nerve root (exiting nerve). Your spinal cord stems from the base of your skull traveling through the cervical, thoracic and lumbar regions of your back. Between each vertebrae, at each level, a pair of spinal nerves exit through holes in the bone of the spine called the foramen on both sides of the spinal column. These nerves are called nerve roots or radicular nerves.
