The sciatic nerve is the longest and largest single nerve in the body. It runs from the lower back down through each leg to the feet. The sciatic nerve is responsible for carrying messages between your brain and your spinal cord, and also between your spinal cord and your muscles, bones, joints, and skin of your legs.

Sciatica refers to pain that radiates from the low back down one or both legs. This pain can be caused by a number of different conditions including: herniated discs in the spine, piriformis syndrome, lumbar spinal stenosis, or inflammation of a ligament on one side of the spine.
