Sciatica is severe pain in the leg caused from compression or irritation of the sciatic nerve. The sciatic nerve is the largest (and longest) nerve of the body. It is approximately the size of your thumb in diameter. Each of the two sciatic nerves branch off each side of the spinal cord and run down the back of each leg. When these nerves are irritated or affected by inflammation of the nearby soft tissue, it is termed by the medical community as sciatica.
