Exercises for Sciatica Caused by Degenerative Disc Disease and Spinal Stenosis

Sciatic nerve pain due to degenerative disc disease and lumbar spinal stenosis is most commonly seen with people over the age of 50.

As we age, the discs in between our lumbar spine start to deteriorate and the space between vertebrae decreases. At the same time, the opening where nerves come out in the low back narrows (spinal stenosis) and this can put pressure on the nerve roots where the sciatic nerve originates.

As pressure is placed on the sciatic nerve roots, this causes inflammation and the vertebrae begin to form calcium deposits which leads to lumbar arthritis.

People with degenerative disc disease and spinal stenosis tend to feel more pain when standing up straight and when moving the lumbar spine into extension because this causes the intervertebral foramen to narrow even further.

People with this condition get relief when bending forward from the waist, sitting down, or bringing their legs towards their chest.
