Sciatica Overview

A Spine Expert Explains this Common Type of Pain

In this video, Dr. Alex Vaccaro, an orthopaedic surgeon and professor at Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia, gives a brief overview of sciatica.  In simple, conversational language, Dr. Wang will help you understand why some of us get sciatica, that lightning-like bolt of pain.

Dr. Vaccaro says that one of the most common complaints he hears from patients is, “Doctor, I have leg pain.”  Very often, that leg pain is sciatica, which isn’t technically a condition; it’s a symptom of another condition that’s causing the shooting pain down your leg.
