Causes of sciatica

Sciatica is one of the common symptoms of various diseases. However, an estimated 90% of cases are due to a herniated (slipped) disc. The spine consists of three parts.

• Vertebrae (individual bones of the spine that protect the underlying nerves)

• Tension

• Disk

Intervertebral discs are made of cartilage, a hard and elastic material. Cartilage acts as a cushion between individual vertebrae and makes the spine flexible. A herniated disc occurs when the disc is displaced and puts pressure on the sciatic nerve.

Prevention of sciatica

In some cases, sciatica can be prevented. Lifestyle changes, such as regular exercise and proper posture when standing, sitting, and lifting, can reduce your chances of developing it.
