With this condition the sciatic nerve is irritated and sharp pain can be created that extends from the hip to the foot. The pain is generated most commonly by two ways. The first is by the disc in the low back bulging and compressing the nerve as it leaves the spinal column. The second is through soft tissue “pinching” of the nerve as it courses through the hip, leg and foot. By freeing up structures such as the piriformis, hamstring, soleus, and dorsal sacral ligament, the sciatic nerve is able to fully function and pain is resolved.
