What is Sciatica? and how do we treat it with Chiropractic ( Manual Therapy)?
Sciatica is the secondary condition and until the primary condition is fully addressed it cannot be soothed or removed.
Your Clinicians job is to decipher where the irritation on the Sciatic nerve is coming from ( primary condition) and what treatment modality is best to help you address the primary condition.
Sciatica is a very common source of back and leg pain. Sciatica is the irritation of the Sciatic nerve.
The Sciatic nerve starts out as several different smaller nerves. From L4 (4th Lumbar Vertebrae) to S3 (3rd Sacral Vertebrae) in the lower back, nerves exits from level of the vertebrae. These nerves join to form the Sciatic Nerve.
The Sciatic nerve passes under or through your Piriformis muscle, continuing down the back of your thigh. The Sciatic nerve splits then into two nerves when it reaches the popliteal fossa. These nerves are called the Tibial and Common Peroneal nerves respectively.
