Sciatica is a common problem that effects many people.Sciatica usually affects only one side of the lower body. Often times, pain travels from the lower back all the way through the back of the thigh and down through one or both legs.  For some people, the pain can be severe.  For others, the pain might be infrequent and irritating, but it can get worse.

There are numerous symptoms that you may be experiencing as a result of sciatica. 

Weakness, numbness or difficulty moving the leg or foot.  

A constant pain on one side of the buttocks.  

A shooting pain that makes it difficult to stand up. 

Pain in the leg or rear that is worse when sitting. 

What people may not realize is that these symptoms are an indication that something is wrong. The problem that causes sciatic pain is often a misaligned vertebra in the spine. The sciatic nerve starts in the lower back and extends into the lower leg. This is why the pain can often be felt anywhere along this nerve.

Dr. Chait can help bring relief, but several treatments, or adjustments, will likely be needed, particularly if it has been occurring for some time. The end result of the adjustment is to realign the spine, taking the pressure off of the nerve and often bringing quick relief. Once the pressure is off, the body can begin to heal itself.
