 What is Sciatica?

Sciatica is a condition where the sciatic nerve has become compressed by another underlying spinal condition. Sciatica is a condition that will only affect the lower back, with symptoms being felt through the buttocks, down the legs, and into the feet.

I have this right now.  It is extremely painful.  I am going to the Chiropractor twice a week.  It was better right before New Year and I actually missed an appointment and it got worse.  Worse than when I started going to the Chiropractor.  Don't give up because it will get better!
