Sciatica, very simply, is a condition where the sciatic nerve, which is the largest nerve in your body, that exists from the lower part of your lumbar spine, is injured.

Now, most commonly, this happens when you injure your back. So, you injure your back, and you pinch the nerves. And those nerves make up the roots of the sciatic nerve.

What does that mean for you?

It means not only will you have pain in your back, but you’re going to have pain shooting down your leg. And it could go all the way into your toes.

Because the nerve is so big and so important, back injuries are very common; but injury to the sciatic nerve is also very common, and it causes a lot of problems.

Because sciatica can limit what you’re able to do on a daily basis – in other words, the activities you can perform, and what stuff you can do with your family – it really affects your life a lot.

Sciatica can include all of the following symptoms:

Some or all of these are pain, spasm, burning, tingling, numbness, and weakness in your leg.

Sciatica can definitely be cured. And Chiropractic has an excellent track record of treating it, because we get to the cause of the condition. And by correcting the cause of the condition, we help people to heal and get better.
