Pain in the Butt: Typically s1 nerve root starts in the back and travels through the tailbone into the leg where it becomes part of the sciatic nerve. Typical pain patterns from compression of the nerve root can cause pain from the buttock region all the way down the back of the leg into the foot, heel and outward toe regions.
