for radicular pain (pain in your leg)

 

Radicular pain is a type of back pain that spreads from the back and travels down the leg below the knee. Sometimes there is no back pain and only leg pain. This sort of leg pain is thought to originate from irritated nerves near the spine. A more general term for this problem is sciatica. However, sciatica is usually used to describe pain down the back of leg—it does not indicate that the sciatic nerve, which is located in the muscles of your buttock and is about as thick as your thumb, is irritated or pinched. Rather, the problem is normally with a nerve branch that can get irritated where it exits the spine. This can lead to different regions of the leg becoming sore, depending on which nerve branch is irritated.
