As per the description in Ayurveda, sciatica is one of the many Vata diseases in which vitiated Vata dosha is predominant.4 The common causes of sciatica are vata-aggravating factors, such as grief, sorrowful thoughts, sickness, sitting or sleeping on uncomfortable beds, anger, daytime sleeping, staying up late at night, nervousness, suppression of natural urges, indigestion, injury, starvation, and internal body disorders. As a result of the aggravated vata dosha, blood, muscle, bone, ligaments, and tendons get affected.4
