Nowadays many people suffer from sciatica, lower back and hip pain. These conditions are result of a disturbance in the function of the sciatic nerve. This nerve binds the spine and the femur which allows the movements of the hips, upper legs, and feet.
According to the physiotherapist Dirk Laubscher:
“Sciatica is a condition characterized by pain running down the back of the leg, usually from the lower back. It is the name given to any sort of pain caused by irritation or compression of the sciatic nerve, which is the longest nerve in your body.”
Sciatica can be very painful condition accompanied with an unbearable and intense pain. The common reasons for the occurrence of this condition can be a body injury, ruptured disc, or spinal stenosis. When such thing occurs, doctors recommend checking the lower back and hips as the pain goes to the lower limbs and feet thus leading to hip and lower back pain.
The pain can be very intense that can impair the normal function of the person not being able to perform the simplest tasks.
