Sciatica is a medical condition characterized by pain that goes down the leg after starting in the lower back. The pain may go down the back, front or outer side of the leg and typically (although not invariably) affects just one side of the body. Lower back pain is sometimes present and the individual may experience weakness or numbness in various parts of the affected leg or foot. The condition may be caused during pregnancy by the weight of the fetus pressing on the sciatic nerve during sitting. In these cases, the condition may be treated by the use of orthopedic braces or taping solutions such as those below that are designed for the purpose. Please consult with your doctor to ensure the product you choose is suited to your injury.
