Sciatica can be caused by a number of conditions that involve your spine and affect the nerves that run down your back. It can also be caused by an injury, such as a fall, or by spinal or sciatic nerve tumors.
The following are some of the most common conditions that can cause sciatica.

- Spondylolisthesis – is one of the associated conditions of degenerative disk disorder.
