In-Home Physiotherapy Can Help Conditions like Sciatica

The sciatic nerve runs from the lower back down through the buttocks and along the back of each leg. Sciatica is pain along this nerve and is a common form of back pain and is usually caused by pressure on the sciatic nerve from a herniated or bulging disc. It may also be caused from tightness in the piriformis muscle around the buttocks.
