Sciatica

Sciatica is the low back pain, that emanates into the buttocks, hip, and down one leg to the foot. It affects 15% to 40% people. People between the age of 30 and 50 years are at a high risk of sciatica. Herniated disk, spinal tumor, trauma, infection, and inflammation, degenerative arthritis, vascular abnormalities in and around spine are the major causes for sciatica. Over 80% to 90% of people with sciatica recover without any surgery. A complete history of the patient with physical examination determines the zone of the irritated nerve root. MRI and CT are the widely used diagnostic tests for sciatica.

Most patients with sciatica respond fairly well to nonsurgical treatments as a result spine surgery is seldom needed for treatment. However, there are situations when spine surgery is critical.
