Sciatica – Pain down your leg

Sciatica refers to back pain caused by irritation of the sciatic nerve. A compression force in the lumbar spine usually causes sciatic nerve pain and irritation. The most distinctive symptom of sciatica is a pain that radiates from your lower back, through the buttocks, and down the legs. It can range from a mild ache to sharp, severe pain. The majority of patients we treat with chiropractic care will recover successfully from this nagging, annoying, aching pain that goes down the leg.
