The sciatic nerve is the largest single nerve found within the human body, which runs from each side of the lumbar spine, through the lumbar plexus region, and trails down into the buttocks, the back of the thigh and into the foot.

Sciatica is a medical term used to describe a series of symptoms rather than a single injury or condition. The most common symptom for sciatica is lower back pain and, although low back pain can be the result of numerous lumbar spine injuries or conditions, several other common symptoms associated with sciatica can closely suggest its presence. Often a result of damage or impingement of the sciatic nerve, many people affected with sciatica experience burning and tingling sensations along the back of the thigh, usually followed by numbness or cramping. Individuals suffering from sciatica may have difficulty going through their regular lifestyles but chiropractic care can help alleviate the symptoms and treat many possible underlying conditions causing the pain and discomfort.

Identifying and diagnosing sciatica can generally be determined if you’ve had lower back pain before as a result of trauma from an injury or if you’ve experienced spinal stiffness which required previous medical attention. Regular symptoms of stiffness on the back can also indicate spine complications. When the spine becomes misaligned, its function is altered and the nerves located along the spine, especially the sciatic nerve, can become irritated and cause sciatica. By re-aligning the spine, a chiropractor can reduce the stress on the nerves in order to gradually improve the injury or condition.

Chiropractic treatment for mild to severe cases of sciatica most commonly involves chiropractic adjustments and manual manipulations, followed by a specialized series of stretches and exercises accommodated to each individual’s level of injury or condition and its symptoms. Both of these treatments together may speed up the rehabilitation process as well as improve the health of the spine and ultimately reduce the symptoms of sciatica.
