Sciatica refers to pain that radiates along the path of the sciatic nerve and its branches — from your back down your buttock and leg. The sciatic nerve is the longest nerve in your body. It runs from your spinal cord to your buttock and hip area and down the back of each leg. Sciatica is a symptom, not a disorder. The radiating pain of sciatica signals another problem involving the nerve, such as a herniated disk. Learn more at the Mayo Clinic.

Sit Less, Move More
Sitting is the one most unhealthy things you can do everyday. Groundbreaking research shows that for every hour a day you spend sitting, your risk of death increases by 11%. Even small movements throughout the day, such as fidgeting, can add up to major health benefits. It is recommended to get 10,000 steps a day. To do this, invest in a pedometer so you can keep track of each step you take toward optimal health. By wearing a pedometer everyday it will motivate you to go even further. And it's fun!
