The sciatic nerve is the longest nerve in the human body, which runs from your lower lumbar region of the spine, through the pelvis, buttocks and down to each leg. It is a condition where the sciatic nerve is impinged either from a disc injury, spinal misalignment, spinal degeneration or severe hip tilt. Patients with sciatica often experience pain travelling from the low back to the buttocks as well as various parts of the leg and foot. If the pain is severe enough, it can cause numbness and weakness of the affected leg.

Chiropractic care has shown to be effective in managing patients with sciatica by effectively removing the nerve interference caused by any misalignment. This helps to reduce the inflammation and pain within the surrounding area of pain.
