What is The Sciatic Nerve?

The sciatic nerve is a branch of nerves which connect to and run from the spinal column, down the legs and then split off into the smaller nerves of the thigh, leg, and foot.

These nerves send thousands of signals to the brain every second. The signals sent along the sciatic nerve enable us to:

  • move the large action muscles in our legs
  • utilise the small, stabiliser muscles
  • register the sensations of pain, heat, cold, wet, dry, sharp or blunt impacts etc etc that our body experiences.
