The sciatic nerve is the longest and largest in your body. When it is inflamed, the condition is called sciatica (pronounced si’ad-a’ka). Not all leg pain is sciatica, but most all sciatica involves leg pain. Sciatica sufferers often have severe pain along the sciatic nerve path, usually in the back of the legs and thighs, although sometimes the pain may also be felt in the ankle, foot, and toes.

Often, pain, paresthesia, pins-and-needles, burning, tingling, prickling, crawling sensations, tenderness, or numbness may be felt in the front or side of the legs, in the hips, or in both legs.


Relief from sciatica has been observed after a single chiropractic adjustment. The most profound effects on sciatica have been experienced when problems first occur. However, chiropractic care has been found to work better than traction, painkiller injections, and surgery no matter when one is in the treatment process. Even those who have been through the medical system can experience positive results.
