Physio’s help people all the time with leg pain due to a low back problem. Nerves can get pinched or irritated as they exit the low back and this can result in leg nerve pain.
Depending on which spinal nerves are involved determines where in the leg you may get the nerve pain.
Typically, it’s pain in the back or outside of your leg due to the lower spinal nerves being irritated.
If you have sciatic nerve pain that isn’t improving then you are advised to get it checked.
