Lumbar radiculopathy, also known as sciatica, is an irritation or compression of one or more nerve roots in the lumbar spine. Because these nerves travel to the hips, buttocks, legs and feet, an injury in the lumbar spine can cause symptoms in these areas. Sciatica may result from a variety of problems with the bones and tissues of the lumbar spinal column.

If you think you may have sciatica, it's important to seek medical attention as soon as possible to prevent further damage and ensure proper treatment.
Sciatica is most commonly caused by a herniated disc putting pressure on the sciatic nerve. However, other conditions such as spinal stenosis or degenerative disc disease can also cause sciatica.
In some cases, sciatica may go away on its own without treatment. However, this is not always the case. If your symptoms persist or worsen, it's important to seek medical attention. Otherwise, you risk further damage to the nerve and potentially permanent disability. Additionally, leaving sciatica untreated can lead to increased pain, numbness, and weakness in the affected area.
