Who gets Sciatica?

Sciatica is most commonly reported in the 25-45 years age group and often reoccurs later in life as arthritic and degenerative changes start to worsen. People during a physically demanding job like  lifting and bending throughout the day have a high prevalence of developing sciatica. But as the phrase goes “sitting is the new smoking” , because people who sit most of the day have a higher risk of developing it. A sedentary lifestyle and sitting throughout the say causes great harm and increases the risk of developing sciatica.  Long hours of sitting can put indue stress on the sciatic nerve because all the weight and pressure gets transferred to the front of the disc causing the material to push back and causing the disc to bulge or increase the size of the bulge towards the nerves. Other categories who are at risk are; people who lift heavy objects in daily activities, Runners (due to repeat stress on discs and lower back), people with diabetes.
