Sciatica Understanding

Sciatica is a pain in the lower extremity resulting from irritation of the sciatic nerve. The pain of Sciatica is typically felt from the low-back (lumbar area) to behind the thigh and can radiate down below the knee. The sciatic nerve is the largest nerve in the body and begins from nerve roots in the lumbar spinal cord in the low back and extends through the buttock area to send nerve endings down the lower limb. Radiculopathy is sometimes referred to as sciatic nerve pain. Sciatica is an unbearable condition in which the patient experiences pain and/or paresthesia in the supply of the sciatic nerve or linked lumbosacral nerve root. Sciatica is a specific pain that is a direct result of sciatic nerve or sciatic nerve root pathology. The term sciatica is limited to the pain and irritation in nerve roots from L1 to L4 and may also involve related areas. Many times patients and clinicians use Sciatica to describe any pain arising from the lower back and radiating down to the leg.


There are some major risk factors associated with the patient for the initiation of the disease and further progression. Some of them are personal factors which involve that the peak age of the disease occurrence is between 45 and 64 years. Smoking and mental health are not only of the causes but also major factors for the progression of the disease. Occupational factors include strenuous physical activity, for example, frequent lifting, especially while bending and twisting. Driving, including vibration of the whole body can also be one of the minor factors.

Sciatica Epidemiology Perspective by DelveInsight

The disease epidemiology covered in the report provides historical as well as forecasted epidemiology segmented by Prevalence of Sciatica, Diagnosed Prevalence of Sciatica, Cause-specific Diagnosed Prevalence of Sciatica, Gender-specific Diagnosed Prevalence of Sciatica, Age-specific Diagnosed Prevalence of Sciatica, Surgery eligible patient pool of Sciatica scenario of Sciatica in the 7MM covering the United States, EU5 countries (Germany, France, Italy, Spain, and United Kingdom) and Japan from 2017 to 2030.

Sciatica Detailed Epidemiology Segmentation

  • The total prevalent population of Sciatica in the seven major markets ranges was 27,022,660 in 2017
  • Delveinsight has also analyzed the diagnosed prevalent population of lumbar disc herniation. In 2017, the number of diagnosed prevalent cases of lumbar disc herniation was 7,358,250, which will increase in the forecast period.
  • In 2017, it was estimated that 4,802,485 males and 3,373,349 females were found with Sciatica in the United States.
  • In 2017, the surgery eligible patient pool in the US was 1,082,736, which is anticipated to increase in the forecast period.
  • The age-specific prevalence of Sciatica was maximum in the age group 45–54 with 2,043,958 cases in 2017 in the US while the lowest number of cases were found in 18–34 age group with 1,218,199 cases in 2017.
  • In 2017, it was estimated that 4,802,485 males and 3,373,349 females were found with Sciatica in the United States. On the other hand, a similar trend is not observed in EU5, and Japan wherein females are more predominant than males.
