What is sciatic nerve compression?

Sciatic nerve compression is a common medical condition in which the large sciatic nerve — the longest nerve in the body that runs from the lower back down both legs — becomes compressed or irritated. This typically results in intense pain that radiates outward from the lower back down either leg. It can also interfere with the normal functioning of muscles and mobility, depending on which section of the nerve is impacted.

What are the symptoms of sciatic nerve compression?

Symptoms typically include a dull ache or sharp shooting pain in the lower back and buttocks, which can worsen when sitting or standing for prolonged periods of time. Sufferers of sciatic nerve compression might experience pain, numbness, or a tingling sensation radiating down the back of one leg. It is important to consult with a doctor if the symptoms significantly restrict daily activities such as sitting or walking. Severe symptoms commonly include weakness in the affected leg muscles and even muscle cramps affecting the same side of your body. In addition, it may be difficult to move your foot or flex your ankle due to localized pain along the path of the sciatic nerve.
