Sciatic Pain is usually caused by four conditions

1. Piriformis Syndrome

This is the most common cause. It results when pressure is placed on sciatic nerve by piriformis muscle. Muscles tighten and put pressure on the nerve, causing the pain.

2. Herniated Disc

When a bulging disc puts pressure on the sciatic nerve, it can cause pain.

3. Spinal Stenosis

This is a narrowing of the spinal canal, causing pressure on the nerve leading to pain

4. Spondylolisthesis

In this quite rare condition, the vertebrae shift, pinching the spinal canal, placing pressure on the nerve and causing pain.
