Your physician has diagnosed that simultaneous lower back pain and nerve pain running down the back of your legs is sciatica.
Okay, you know what it is - but how do you get rid of sciatica pain?
While the majority of sciatica sufferers recover from the condition without surgery, some sciatica treatment options are more effective than others - particularly chiropractic treatment tailored for sciatica pain.
But first, what is sciatica?
Sciatica is characterized by back pain arising from problems with the sciatic nerve, which is a large nerve that runs from the lower back through the back of each leg. Injuries and slipped, compressed, or herniated disks put pressure on the sciatic nerve, resulting in sharp back pain that radiates down the legs, hips, and buttocks.
