Were you looking for information about Sciatica? Sciattica is a common misspelling of sciatica.
Sciatica is a medical condition that is usually caused by a ruptured or herniated disc pressing on the sciatic nerve. This compression causes shock-like or burning lower back pain combined with pain through the buttocks and down one leg to below the knee, occasionally reaching the foot. Treatment for sciatica will depend on what is causing the pain and how long the pain has been present.
