(CNN) -- Sciatica is a real pain in the butt -- and, sometimes, in the leg and foot.

That's because the sciatic nerves, the longest nerves in your body, run bilaterally from the base of the spine through the deep muscles of the buttocks and all the way down the back of each leg.
When impinged, they cause significant discomfort, ranging from relentless throbbing in one side of your buttocks to shooting pain down the back of your leg. And as if that isn't enough, the pain is often accompanied by numbness, tingling and weakness.

Experts estimate up to 40% of adults have experienced sciatica. If you're one, you've probably scoured the Internet looking for ways to make it stop, only to encounter conflicting advice. That's because sciatica is actually a symptom of many possible conditions that respond to different treatments.
Because of sciatica's varying causes, there isn't a single magic bullet for relief. However, yoga, when applied correctly, can be effective in not only relieving sciatica, but also preventing it.
