The sciatic nerve is the longest and widest nerve in the human body. It runs from the lower back, through the buttocks, and down the legs, ending just below the knee.

This nerve controls several muscles in the lower legs and supplies sensation to the skin of the foot, and the majority of the lower leg.

Sciatic pain starts in the lower back or buttocks traveling down the leg and can be caused by a misaligned spine. The misalignment can restrict movement causing a pinched nerve, swelling, muscle spasm, pain and other symptoms suggesting sciatica.

DHD Spine and Rehabilitation uses various adjustments and therapies that are safe and effective, like spinal manipulation to relieve the nerve pressure/pain.

One cause of sciatic pain can be the result of Piriformis syndrome, a condition in which the piriformis muscle located in the buttocks irritates the sciatic nerve. This type of injury can cause spasms, inflammation, and unbearable pain in the muscles.
