Sciatica is a condition that involves the large nerve running down the leg. For those who have had sciatica, there is no doubt about how bad it can interfere with your lifestyle. We look for not only the primary reason for the pain but also any complicating factors involved in the irritation or likely cause of a reaggravation of the sciatic nerve. Lower back disk bulges can irritate the nerve and is a common cause of pain or changes in sensation that extend below the knee. We can use traction, specific chiropractic adjustments along with therapies to help resolve the issue and regain stability in the low back.
