Sciatica is a severe pain in the leg caused from compression or irritation of the sciatic nerve.
The sciatic nerves are the largest and longest nerves of the body. They reach about the size of your thumb in diameter and run down the back of each leg.
When these nerves are irritated or affected by the inflammation of nearby soft tissues, doctors refer to this as sciatica.
Sciatica, like other health problems that can be traced to the spine, often respond dramatically to the restoration of normal spinal function through chiropractic care.
Chiropractic adjustments can be quite effective in reducing nerve irritation and its associated pain.
