And while Aduba (“Orange is the New Black”) stars as Dr. Brooke Taylor, Byrne’s presence lingers, starting with a photo of the two together displayed in the fabulously posh house — complete with killer view — where she plies her trade.

As always, the casting and individual stories help carry the show, and the producers have done an exceptionally shrewd job on that score, beginning with Anthony Ramos, the “Hamilton” alum who should be even more prominent this summer with “In the Heights” to hit theaters and HBO Max.

5 Exercises to Help Sciatica

The main nerve in your leg is called the sciatic nerve. It also happens to be the largest nerve in your body. The sciatic nerve goes from the rear of your pelvic area down through the back of your thigh. If you have pain in this area of your body, it’s called sciatica or lumbar radiculopathy.

The nerve pain from sciatica also can affect several muscles, including:

  • The piriformis muscle, which is a muscle that attaches the hip to the spinal area.
  • The gluteus medius and gluteus maximus, often called your glutes.
  • The hamstring muscles in your legs.
  • The calf muscles.
