About Sciatic nerve:
The sciatic nerve is a large nerve, formed from nerve roots that originate from the spinal cord. These nerve roots pass out between the disc spaces and join up to form the sciatic nerve. It passes from the spine into the buttock, then into the back of the thigh and leg.
The sciatic nerve controls the sensation and function of the leg and foot.
Types of sciatica:
Acute Sciatica (which is of shorter duration): It is seen for 4-8 weeks. In this condition, pain may reduce in few days. Symptoms reduce by taking medicines.
Chronic Sciatica(which is of longer duration): In this condition, pain may persist for a longer duration. In this, along with medicines, some physical therapy is also required like exercise and heat application. Sometimes surgery is also required to give relief.
Herniated disc or lumbar bulging: It is also known as contained disc disorder. It is a serious condition as bulging of the disc can press nearby nerves which results in more symptoms. It results not only in the herniation of the disc but disc material which is released also contains an acid mainly hyaluronic acid which can cause nerve inflammation.
