The Benefits of Chiropractic for Sciatica
Sciatica is a painful condition that involves the sciatic nerve which travels from the lower spine area across the small of the back, through the hips, buttocks, and down the legs. There is a sciatic nerve on each side of the body, but it is not uncommon for only one side of the body to be affected.
This can be a very painful condition, with the most common cause being a herniated disc that creates pressure on the nerve. Sometimes, bony growths in the lower back can also create this pressure. People may experience mild to severe pain that may come and go. In severe cases, sciatica can cause bowel and bladder problems or significant weakness in the leg(s).

Frequently Asked Questions
Are there any side effects or associated risks?
During more than twenty years of use by healthcare providers all over the world, very few side effects have ever been reported. Occasionally, some old injuries or pain syndromes may feel aggravated for a few days, as the healing response is more active after treatment.
How long does each treatment take?
The typical course of treatment is 10 minutes, depending on the area being treated. How often should a patient be treated? Acute conditions may be treated daily, particularly if they are accompanied by significant pain. More chronic problems respond better when treatments are received 2 to 3 times a week tapering to once a week, or once every other week, with improvement.
How many treatments does it take?
This depends on the nature of the condition being treated. For some acute conditions, 1-6 treatments may be sufficient. Those of a more chronic nature may require 10 or more treatments. Conditions such as severe arthritis may require ongoing periodic care to control pain.
How long before the results are felt?
Does it hurt?
