Sciatica occurs when the body’s sciatic nerve, which begins in the spinal cord, passes through the hips and buttocks, and then branches down each leg, becomes irritated. It is a symptom that can be caused by various conditions, such as a herniated spinal disc.
According to Healthline, sciatica “involves a sensation that can manifest as moderate to severe pain in the back, buttocks, and legs.” Victims may also “feel weakness, burning or sharp pain, or numbness in these areas.”
Adele has spoken about her problems with back pain in the past.
“I slipped my first record when I was 15 from sneezing. I was in bed and I sneezed and my fifth flew out,” he told The Face in 2021. “In January, I slipped on my sixth, my L6. And then where I had a C-section, my core was useless. I’ve had back pain for, like, half my life, really,” he continued. “It breaks out, usually due to stress or a stupid posture. But where I got my strong tummy, down at the bottom, which I’ve never had before, my back doesn’t play as much.”
Adele’s 32-date “Weekends With Adele” residency in Las Vegas began on November 18 and will run through the end of March.
