Sciatica is a lower back condition experienced by many who live in the St. Petersburg area.
The condition causes the sciatic nerve to produce a range of symptoms from the lower back to the bottom of the foot. The development of sciatica is not always the same, but the most common cause for people between the ages of 20 and 40 is a prolapsed or herniated disc in the spinal column that presses on a spinal nerve root. Other causes could range from osteoarthritis to postural changes from pregnancy and sitting in an awkward position for long periods causes brief episodes of sciatica in any age group. Sciatica most commonly appears on the right side of the body.

Some people experience sharp pain in part of the leg or hip, others have pain extending down the back of the leg to the knee, tingling in the foot, and muscle weakness.
