Ah, sciatica risk factors! Aren’t those just lovely? Just another thing you wanted to add to your pregnancy worry list! Although sciatica risk factors are almost as unpleasant to talk about as the sciatica itself, it is important that you learn whether your odds of having a sciatica pregnancy are greater than most. Why, oh why would you want to know ahead of time that lower back and buttocks pain is just around the corner of your pregnancy? Ignorance is bliss, is it not? Let me put it this way: if you know that you have a greater chance of experiencing sciatica before that baby is on its way, you may be able to prevent a sciatica nightmare. Stay back, sciatica!
