The sciatic nerve can be impinged by the following structures:
1. Disc Herniation
Commonly known as slipped disc. When our disc matter protrudes into the nerve canal, this can pinch and irritate our sciatic nerve.
2. Piriformis Muscle
Our piriformis muscle is a muscle that lies directly next to the sciatic nerve. Contraction or traumas on the muscle can imponge on the sciatic nerve.
3. Facet Joint
Our facet joints allow movements between the vertebrae Injuries or degeneration of the facet joint can narrow the spinal canal , causing sciatica.
