Do you know that Sciatica can lead to worsening of neurological symptoms that can lead to weakness and numbness in legs? This further leads to severe problems as well. About 40% of the adults suffer from Sciatica and nervous pain.
Sciatica occurs when a nerve in the lower back gets inflamed, irritated, compressed or pinched. Another major cause is slip disk or herniated disk which increases the pressure on the root nerve. It also occurs due to narrowing of the spine area through which the nerves pass. Sciatica may be due to a back injury or Spondylolisthesis, where a bone slips out of its position.
Effect of Sciatica in Adults:
Sciatica is the longest nerve in the human body. It starts from lower back, moves to hips, buttocks, legs and feet on both sides. When there is any pressure on the nerve the following effects are seen in adults:-

Depending on the type of nerve affected the person can experience different types of pain like dull thudding pain or acute pain in the lower back. This pain can also lead to pain in the toes or foot.
