Many people suffer from pain radiating from the lower back down the back of the thigh and continuing down below the knee into the calf and sometimes down the front and side of the leg. Patients describe this pain as sharp, burning, stabbing, throbbing, jolt like pain. It can be constant or it can be intermittent.
The sciatic nerve is comprised of branches of nerves which exit from the lower back and upper sacral segments. If you were to look at the sciatic nerve you would see that it’s one of the largest nerves in the body width wise. Now, nerves just don’t cause pain for the sake of pain. Most of the time, the sciatic nerve becomes painful because it becomes irritated. When one of the vertebrae in the lower back shift out of its normal position it can irritate the sciatic nerve and cause pain. There is no drug that can put that vertebrae back into its normal position. If the sciatica is very severe drugs won’t even give temporary relief. I have been assisting patients with this condition for the past 35 years.
As a Chiropractor, I will analyze the stucture of the lumbar vertebrae and sacrum and then correct the cause of the sciatic pain and remove the irritation. Stop suffering needlessly from this condition.
