Sciatica is characterized by a radiating pain down the leg into the toes, sometimes described as a numbness or tingling feeling. The Sciatic Nerve is one of the largest nerves in the body and provides sensation and strength to most of the muscles in the legs. When symptoms are felt they are not always in the same area which can make it frustrating for the patient.
