What Is Sciatica?
If your sciatic nerve becomes inflamed, the condition is called sciatica (pronounced sï -ad’-i-ka). The pain can be intense! It often follows the path of your nerve—down the back of your legs and thighs, ankle, foot and toes—but it can also radiate to your back! Along with burning, sharp pains, you may also feel nerve sensations such as pins-and-needles, tingling, prickling, crawling sensations or tenderness. Ironically, your leg may also feel numb!

To complicate matters, although sciatica pain is usually in the back of the legs or thighs, in some people it can be in the front or side of the legs or even in the hips. For some, the pain is in both legs: bilateral sciatica!

Sciatic Nerve
Your sciatic nerve is your longest and largest nerve. It is made up of five roots that leave your low back, join in your pelvis and then travel to the muscles and joints of your thigh, knee, calf, ankle, foot and toes.

Causes Of Sciatica
Like most other conditions, sciatica has a wide variety of causes, but an unhealthy spine with a protruded or ruptured disc can irritate the sciatic nerve causing sciatica. Sciatica has been reported following accidents, injuries and even childbirth, usually due to spinal misalignment. However, advanced diabetes can also cause sciatic nerve irritation as can arthritis, constipation, tumors and even vitamin deficiencies.

The Chiropractic Approach
Chiropractors correct the vertebral subluxation complex, which causes poor spinal alignment and nerve pressure. Doing this, chiropractors relieve stress on the spinal nerves, joints and discs. Just as you get your car’s alignment checked and corrected, so you should periodically get your spine’s alignment checked out and corrected. Is chiropractic spinal care a treatment for sciatica? No it is a procedure for the analysis and correction of spinal nerve stress. And yet, if you do have sciatica, a chiropractic spinal adjustment is very badly needed. Every sciatica sufferer needs a healthy spine.

Chiropractic Results
For over a hundred years, doctors of chiropractic have given spinal adjustments to millions of patients, many of them sciatica sufferers. During that period, chiropractors have observed the benefits that chiropractic subluxation correction has on many of those suffering from sciatica and leg pain; many sciatica sufferers have reported dramatic relief of their condition after chiropractic care. Many sciatica and leg pain sufferers have found that chiropractic was superior to traction and pain injections, often saving them from the prospect of having to live with pain, or perhaps face spinal surgery.)

Chiropractors, also known as doctors of chiropractic or chiropractic physicians, diagnose and treat patients whose health problems are associated with the bodyís muscular, nervous, and skeletal systems, especially the spine. Interference with these systems impairs the bodyís normal functions and lowers its resistance to disease. Spinal or vertebral dysfunction alters many important body functions by affecting the nervous system. Skeletal imbalance through joint or articular dysfunction, especially in the spine, can cause pain. Chiropractors provide natural, drugless, non-surgical health treatments and rely on the bodyís inherent recuperative abilities. In many cases, a patientís difficulties can be traced to the involvement of musculoskeletal structures; usually spinal subluxations are at the root of the problem. Chiropractors adjust the spinal column to correct these subluxations. This helps to correct the structural and functional problems with the patients joints and nervous system.
