Sciatica ( Back Ache )
Daya Neuro Physio & Rehabilitation Center
Back pain comes in all shapes and sizes. It can flare up immediately after an injury or appear slowly and mysteriously over months. It might be sudden and short-lived (acute) or long-lasting (chronic). Over-the-counter medicines help with some types of back pain but only powerful drugs and surgery can fix others.
Sciatica usually starts with a herniated disk in your lumbar (lower) spine. Your vertebrae (the bones that make up your spine) are separated and cushioned by flat, flexible, round disks of connective tissue. When a disk gets worn down — either because of an injury or just years of use — its soft center can begin to push out from the hard outer ring.
