Common reasons individuals seek relief from sciatica include:
- Herniated Discs: Disc issues can compress the sciatic nerve, causing radiating pain down the leg.
- Spinal Stenosis: Narrowing of the spinal canal can lead to nerve compression and sciatic pain.
- Piriformis Syndrome: Irritation or compression of the piriformis muscle can trigger sciatic symptoms.
- Spondylolisthesis: Displacement of a vertebra can compress the sciatic nerve, resulting in pain and discomfort.
