Learn more about sciatica

We're pleased to announce that we have a new video available on our website talking about sciatica. Sciatica is most commonly caused by an extruded disc compressing a nerve in the lower back, causing radiating pain in one or both legs.
Many cases of sciatica will resolve without treatment in the course of a few weeks. If treatment is needed, it usually consists of a structured exercise programme under the supervision of a physiotherapist, combined with injections of anti-inflammatory and painkilling medication into the spine. In rare cases, surgery may be needed.

If you are looking for more information on sciatica, it is advised to consult trusted sources, such as the Patient Line website. On the website, you can find a vast array of resources put together by healthcare providers. We also recommend contacting your doctor to inquire about your specific needs.

The Patient Line website offers information for patients with spinal conditions:
Sciatica, back pain, spinal stenosis, disc herniation, scoliosis and many other spine conditions explained in a clear reliable, and trustworthy way. Not for profit EUROSPINE experts are here to help patients and their families understand what may be worrying them.
