Have you ever wake up and experienced the feeling of terrible pain starting from your upper thighs all the way to your feet? Or, the annoying pain in the lower back which will not go away not matter what you try?
This could indicate that you are suffering from sciatic nerve pain, known as sciatica, which causes painful throbbing in the limbs and lower back.
A slipped or herniated disc is considered as the main cause of sciatica.
However, there are other factors which can cause this condition including, spinal stenosis, degenerative disc disease, pregnancy, isthmic spondylolisthesis, piriformis syndrome, spinal injury or infection.
Today, there are many methods used for treating sciatica, but most of them provide short-term relief.
