Sciatica is caused by a herniated disc in the lower back that causes pain and numbness in the buttock that extends down the leg. Sciatica is the most common symptom of a herniated disc in the lower back that puts pressure on the sciatic nerve. The pain most often occurs on one side. It may get worse after sitting / standing / walking / bending backwards, at night, or when you sneeze, cough or laugh.
I had my first adjustment that day. It wasn’t painful (something I had expected), it was quick, it was simple, and I was able to stand up straight. I still had a lot of pain as we moved forward with the spinal decompression. It was like taking a giant pain pill that first day. I literally crawled in that morning and walked out that afternoon. These treatments have made it possible for me to get out of bed without soreness. — Patient from Corinth, TX
