Sciatica pain can be unexpected and sudden. Some people describe it as being like a lightening strike, or even a constant ache deep down. It targets the hip area. This is a serious condition that can really get much worse if it goes untreated. Relief is out there for those who suffer.
The whole problem revolves around the sciatic nerve. This is the largest of all of the nerves in the human body running from the gluteus maximus to the toe area. It branches out to other areas in the body, and the pain can be felt in areas like the joints, muscles, skin and tissues in the lower extremities. The onset of pain may also be felt in the back.
Since sciatica pain can come from a number of things like lifting wrong, spinal stress, trauma, old injuries, falls, a lack in exercise, sitting for long periods of time and bad posture just to name a few. A chiropractor can offer a lot of relief from the pain that is dealt with by sciatica sufferers.

They can pinpoint the vertebrate and execute a painless adjustment to manipulate the spinal cord and eliminate the pain.
