The history of low back pain and sciatica date back to ancient times. Domenico Cotugno first described "sciatica" in its classic terminology in 1764 and believed that pain was generated by the nerve itself. The big three V's: Valliex, Virchow and Von Luschka introduced the possibility of structure referred pain in the 1800's. With the advent of x-rays one hundred years ago, imaging of spinal anatomy allowed correlation of anatomic findings to conditions that explained the origin of low back pain.
