Most commonly, sciatica is caused by a disk bulge. A disk bulge presses against a nerve heading down the leg. The result is nerve pain or “sciatica” down the leg(s). There are many causes of sciatica that should be considered besides a disk bulge such as fractures to the lumbar spine, lumbar arthritis, lumbar stenosis, etc. Accurately diagnosing sciatica is important to prevent long-lasting disability and pain.
