Lower back pain can start as a mild problem, but it may quickly become a debilitating condition. In this video, you will learn more about a lower back pain condition called sciatica. When the sciatic nerve is damaged or inflamed, you may feel a sharp, stinging pain that travels from your lower back and down your legs. Your treatment options range from pain relievers and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medication to a home stretching routine and professional physical therapy.
