Neurological spine surgeon Dr. Robert Bray was recently featured in a segment for Universal Sports on sciatica pain. According to Dr. Bray, sciatica is a term that’s “inflammation of the sciatic, or the lowest nerve, and it creates radiating pain down your leg.”
In order to prevent sciatica, Dr. Bray says you need to focus on core trunk strengthening and flexibility: “You have to be flexible to be able to sustain impacts they make take that often cause an injury.”
