What is mild generative disc disease associated with sciatica? What causes it?

Wearing out. Disc dries out, wears out, or suffers infection/inflammation called discitis.If it's assoc'd w/sciatica, it could actually be referred pain from an annular disc tear.Otherwise, sciatica has many causes from pinched nerve due to lumbar vertebral dysfunction, SI jt problem, piriformis syndrome, etc.I never assume that just because disc disease is present that it is THE cause until others ruled out.

Myofascial pain. Sciatica is the word used to describe pain radiating down a leg and assumed to come from disc problems in the lower back.

It is NOT from mild degenerative disc disease. www.blatmanhealthandwellness.com. Read more...
