What is Sciatica? 

Sciatica is a term that purely refers to compression of the sciatic nerve. The symptoms of this can range, depending on where in its distribution the nerve is compressed.

What Causes Sciatica?

The most common cause of sciatica is a disc compression from the lumbar spine. The symptoms would be more than pain in the distribution down the back of the thigh and calf muscle but would include Parasthesia (change in sensation eg. pins and needles) and/or anaesthesia (loss of sensation eg. numbness) as well as some level of weakness around the foot and ankle. In combination, these other symptoms are known as radicular symptoms. Without radicular symptoms, sciatica could be caused by compression of the nerve elsewhere down its distribution.
