What Is It?

If you’re struggling with sciatica pain, you’re not alone. Sciatica, a condition characterized by pain that radiates along the sciatic nerve and is common among runners, weight lifters, and other high-performance athletes. The sciatic nerve runs from the lower back through the hips, buttocks, and down each leg, so when something goes wrong, it can cause widespread discomfort.

Why Is It Happening?

Sciatica pain is often caused by pressure on the nerve, such as from a bulging or herniated disc in the low back or muscle spasms in the piriformis muscle in the buttocks. Even seemingly minor habits, like sitting on a wallet, can contribute to sciatica pain.
