  • Answer: The sciatic nerve is a large nerver running down into your leg. It is a fairly thick nerve and contains pain receptors as part of the bundle. Often times the nerve will become pinched either between your muscles or between muscle and bone, or in a few cases bone and bone; these are all known as sciatica. Since it provides sensation to your entire leg you will feel the pain from it throughout your entire leg. The intensity of pain is caused because it is an actual nerve being pinched as opposed to just a single receptor. Many people will go to massage therapists, reflexologists, or chiropractors to correct sciatica.

The sciatic nerve is actually a combination of nerves. It is formed on the right and left hand side of the lower spine by the combination of the fourth and fifth lumbar nerves and the first three nerves in the sacral spine. Each nerve exits the spine between two vertebral segments and is named for the segment above it.
