Curated from the article Massage Therapy for Sciatic Nerve Pain written by Dr. Anthony Odney, D.C. and published in Massage Today on March 3, 2020.
Sciatic pain occurs when there is pain along the sciatic nerve, which extends from your lower back, through your hips and buttocks, and down each leg. Sciatica generally affects only one side of the body and can range in severity from mild to severe. This painful condition can result in sudden and sharp pain, soreness, numbness and/or tingling, and some people may struggle with walking or standing due to the pain.
