Sciatic nerve is a large nerve running bilaterally downwards from the lower back (spine) to back of the leg. When this nerve is compressed due to any kind of anatomical disturbances it leads to pain, this condition is termed as Sciatica.
Basically sciatica affects only one side most of the times, but it may be bilateral in rare cases. In sciatica pain usually radiates from lower back towards the back of the thigh up to the toes. The pain is caused due to irritation to the sciatic nerve at the lumbosacral region, where the nerve bifurcates from spinal column towards each leg. This is the origin of the nerve. Exactly at this point the nerve is compressed leading to pain, which is shooting in nature.
