Sciatica

Sciatica is the descriptive term for when pain runs from your back or buttocks down your leg and even into your foot. It is a condition caused by either compression or trauma of the sciatic nerve. Sciatica is made worse when you cough or if someone lifts your leg up while you are lying down. Symptoms may begin abruptly or gradually, are usually irritated by movement, and often grow worse at night. Sciatica implies that there is an irritation of your nerve root in the lower part of your spine. In some instances, this could be due to a ruptured or herniated disc in your lower back.

Lumbar Interbody Fusion

Abnormalities or degeneration (wearing) of the discs between vertebrae may lead to abnormal motions causing back and or leg pain. If this pain continues following attempts at rehabilitation, surgery may be recommended. Surgical treatments for this pain commonly involve eliminating motion between affected vertebrae by initiating new bone growth, ultimately joining the two vertebrae together.
