Sciatica is a disease in which the patient experiences terrible pain. The main reason for this is the sciatic nerve. It is the nerve that moves from the lower part of the spine to the backside of the knee. When the body is kept in the same position for a long time, the pain of sciatica increases which is unbearable. Let us talk a little bit about Sciatica and take a quick look at all the aspects related to it.

Sciatica is a disease in which the patient suffers from unbearable pain and sometimes this pain becomes so unbearable that the patient is disillusioned even after getting up. The main cause of sciatica is the sciatic nerve, which is the nerve that goes from the lower part of the spine to the back of the knee towards the foot. This pain is aggravated by keeping the body in the same position for a longer period and often this problem occurs in people who work in one place for a long time.


Excessive cycling, riding a motorcycle or scooter also puts pressure on the cytological nerve. Sometimes this type of pain occurs due to sudden stress on the bones. This type of pain usually occurs at the age of 40-50 years and the disease is more seen during rainy or cold weather.
