Sciatica Treatment Missisauga

Sciatica Treatment Mississauga is available at all of our PhysioNow Mississauga Clinics, www.physionow.ca.
Sciatica refers to back pain caused by an inflammation with the sciatic nerve. This is a large nerve that runs from the lower back down the back of each leg. When something irritates or puts pressure on the sciatic nerve, it can cause pain in the lower back that spreads to the hip, buttocks, and leg.
