Exercises that Target Sciatica
The sciatic nerve extends from both sides of the lower spine, traveling along the buttock and leg, all the way to the foot. Compression or pinching of this nerve anywhere along this path can lead to a painful condition called sciatica. The pain can range from a nagging pain in the lower back to shooting pains down one of the legs, and is often disabling. Numbness and tingling may also be present.
