A few different low back disorders can lead to sciatica. There are sixmajor sciatica causes that you may come across such as lumbar herniated disc. A lumbarherniated disc takes place when the nucleus breaks through the fibrous outer core of the herniateddisc and annoys the contiguous nerve root as it goes out of the spine. Normally, people wouldthink that a sudden twisting motion can lead to disc herniation or sciatica but most discs weaken indue time because of the repetitive stress. Herniated disc is also known as slipped disc, bulgingdisk, or pinched nerve, and sciatica is the most common symptom of lumbar herniated disc. Most sciatica causes are easily eradicated. One other common cause of sciatica is lumbar spinalstenosis. Spinal stenosis is a nerve compression disorder which habitually affects mature peopleover the age of 60. Pain in the leg area similar to sciatica may happen as a result of lumbar spinalstenosis. Lumbar spinal stenosis is associated with natural ageing in the spine which more oftenthan not results from a mixture of one or more of the following medical conditions - overgrowth ofsoft issue, enlarged facet joints and bulging disc which annoys the nerve roots as they flow out ofthe spine causing sciatic nerve pain. Spondylolisthesis is one of the sciatica causes that most often happen in the lumbar spine. It isdistinguished by one vertebra slipping forward over adjoining vertebra. When the vertebra slipsand is dislocated, spinal nerve root compactness happens and often causes the sciatic nerve legpain. Spondylolisthesis is classified as a case that is found at birth and develops during childhood,trauma or physical stress. Despite the fact that disc degeneration is a normal procedure that happens throughout ageing, forsome people one or more degenerated discs in the lower back can annoy a nerve root andproduce sciatica. Such a disc is identified when a weakened disc effects in excessive micro-motion at the spinal level and the inflammation from inside the disc become bare and annoys thenerve roots. Many sciatica causes are through past motor vehicle accidents, rugby or any other sports, a falldown the stairs can trigger sciatica pain as direct nerve compression causes exterior forces to thesacral spinal nerve roots. The impact from the accident or sports injury may injure the nerves orfragments of broken bone may apply pressure to the nerves. Other sciatica causes such as piriformis syndrome can cause the sciatic nerve to be irritated as itis situated under the piriformis muscle. If the muscle pinches or annoys a nerve root that consistsof the sciatic nerve, it can lead to a pain akin to sciatica causes. However, this may not be a true
