Sciatica Nerve Pain

Chiropractic Health Care - Nerve Pain

Sciatica is usually caused by pressure on the sciatic nerve from a herniated disc (also referred to as a ruptured disc, pinched nerve, slipped disk, etc.) in the lumbar spine.
Symptoms include:
Burning or tingling down the leg
Weakness, numbness or difficulty moving the leg or foot
A constant pain on one side of the rear
A shooting pain that makes it difficult to stand up
Low back pain may be present along with the leg pain, but usually the low back pain is less severe than the leg pain


  1. I have back pain but I am glad that its not sciatica.

  2. Sciatica has plagued me for a couple of years now. I actually got it during pregnancy, which I didn't know thats what it was from. I thought it was a normal process, but after being diagnosed a few months ago, I've started sciatica treatment and I'm starting to feel much better. I can actually go out and do things, be active, play with my children, without being self-consious of a flare up.
