With sciatica, the consequent ache can be felt anywhere from the base of the spine, the buttocks or the back of the thigh and legs. Even tingling sensations in the toes can be attributed at times to the impingement of the sciatic nerve.

The spinal column is made up of three parts: • Vertebrae (individual bones in the spine that protect underlying nerves) • Nerves • Disks Disks are made of cartilage, which is a strong and resilient material; the cartilage acts as a cushion between each vertebrae and allows the spine to be flexible. In many cases of sciatica, there is no single obvious cause. Anything that irritates the sciatic nerve can produce sciatic pain. However, it is thought that a combination of muscle, joint, and bone strain may lead to sciatica, which is why it is more common in people over 40.
