The longest nerve in the body is the sciatic nerve. It runs from
the lower back down the leg into the toes. When irritated or inflamed
you will hear people refer to the term sciatica. This means that
the sciatic nerve has become inflamed and irritated causing people
excruciating pain in the back of their leg. Some people note problems
in the buttock, some the knee area, others near the foot and some
just feel it throughout the entire leg and foot. This is all referred
to as sciatica. Also, people may notice a deep ache of the leg and
cramping like sensations of the muscles, pins and needles, burning
sensations, numbness and tenderness.
Chiropractic has witnessed great benefit for those suffering from
sciatica or sciatic type complaints. Most sciatic people receive
tremendous relief from chiropractic superior to traction and pain
injections, often saving them from having spinal surgery.
