What Causes Sciatica?
While anyone can develop sciatica, it’s most common in older adults due to the natural aging process and its impact on your spine and bones. It may affect just one side of your body, or both. Sciatica starts as burning, shooting pain that radiates down your leg. This often signals a pinched nerve in your lower back, which may be compressed as the nerve branch travels throughout the extremity.
Causes of sciatica include:
- Musculoskeletal Problems
- Disc Pathology
- Bone Spurs
- Respiratory Illness
- Sedentary Lifestyle
- Injury or Trauma
