The sciatic nerve is the largest nerve in the body, originating in the lower back and going through the buttock and down the lower limb.
If this nerve is compressed or irritated, it caused severe pain (sciatica) felt along it, from the lower back, buttock, back of the thigh, on the side of the foot, and the heel.
The pain is often accompanied by a tingling sensation, numbness, and weakness.
Experts believe that the sciatic pain is not a disease or disorder, but a symptom of some other issue involving your nerve, like a herniated disc, degenerative disc disease or a narrowing of the spinal canal.
Here is how to naturally relieve sciatica pain:

Lying on the floor, out a tennis ball under the back in the painful area, and make circular movements for the ball to massage the place. Massage for 10 seconds make a short break, and repeat.
