The sciatic nerve is the largest nerve in our body. Sciatica is the pain experienced in the lower back, legs, and buttocks, and it is one of the most common back issues.
This pain is usually caused by a pinched or irritated sciatic nerve. Despite the debilitating pain, this condition is also manifested by tingling and numbness in the legs.
Medications specialized for sciatica pain provide only temporary effects, so experts recommend regular exercise and yoga stretches as the best way to treat it.
