Difference Between Back Pain & Sciatica

Sciatica is a network of nerves that begins from our lower back and merges to form two nerves that run in our both legs. Any pain or discomfort caused in the buttocks, thighs or calves region where the sciatic nerve runs could be a sign of Sciatica dysfunction. If you are encountering pain in your lower back, the pain will be felt more on your lower spine. The lower back pains are mostly caused due to bulged discs, ligament strain, arthritis etc. 

Causes of Sciatica dysfunction

Back pain is mostly caused by the impingement of bones & nerves. 5 nerves from our lower back merge and form our sciatic nerve which helps in the sensation & motor activities of our leg.

To easily get away from lower back pain, build abdomen muscles. This is not suggested for older people and people with severe  lower back pain, they must grab immediate medical attention. Building core muscles can be helpful for people who are having mild no physical pains and are already working out. 

The core muscles act as the major balancing system of our body, it makes the spine straight and erect. An erect spine gives lower possibilities for a sciatica nerve impingement or a  lower back pain to happen, this will also improve circulation. Also, a major cause of  lower back pain is due to the subluxation of our spinal joints, these joints collapse onto one another resulting in impingements. Building core muscles will add stability to our spine and stop the nerve impingements by improving our natural levitation. If this happens in our bodies, there are more chances for us to build a healthier lifestyle and live more peacefully along with the environment.

Building muscles will help all our joints to become more stable, and there will be fewer chances for any damage. Also exercising improves our blood flow to all the body parts and organs and hence aids us in producing more immunity.
