Sciatica is a condition characterized by neuralgic pain that runs down the lower back, buttocks, and upper leg – and is one of the most common reasons people go to chiropractors in Texas. The cause is the sciatic nerve that carries sensory information from the legs to the brain. When the nerve is compressed or inflamed, it can create chronic pain that makes it uncomfortable to sit down. If your sciatica has been affecting you for more than six weeks or the pain is unbearable, you may need to visit your local chiropractor.
