The sciatic nerve is a large nerve fiber. It begins in the lower back and runs through the buttock and down the lower limb. It is the longest and widest single nerve in the human body. Sciatica is one of the most common forms of pain caused by compression of the spinal nerves in the lower back, and the leg pain is usually much worse than the back pain.
Sciatica is a symptom, not a disorder. The radiating pain of sciatica signals another problem involving the nerve, such as a herniated disk. A herniated disk is technically different than a degenerated disc, however the chiropractic treatment and the spinal strengthening system using Power Plate and bioDensity are quite often similar. Refer to our page about Degenerative Disc Disease for a more detailed description of our treatment plan.
