Back pain: The best treatment for shooting pain down your lower back to your leg

Mr Panos Liantis, Consultant Spinal Surgeon at London Bridge Hospital (part of HCA UK), is an expert on sciatica. Here, he shares his medical knowledge on the condition.

“Sciatica is a debilitating condition,” Mr Liantis began. “The patient experiences pain and/or paraesthesia [tingling or prickling] in the distribution of the sciatic nerve.”

Spine-health explained the sciatic nerve “is the largest nerve in the human body”.

Formed by the union of five nerve roots from the lower spine, it extends all the way from the lower spine to the sole of the feet.
