Sciatica is leg pain that is usually caused by pressure on the sciatic nerve and is often accompanied by muscle weakness, numbness and tingling.

The most common cause of sciatica is a herniated disc in the lower back that puts pressure on the sciatic nerve. A less common cause of sciatica is Piriformis syndrome, a disorder in which a muscle located in the buttocks (the piriformis muscle) irritates the sciatic nerve.

In a majority of cases, sciatic pain can be relieved through a combination of chiropractic care to the spinal nerves and treatment of the piriformis muscle. Applied Kinesiology, NET (Neuro Emotional Technique), and trigger-point ultrasound therapy can be particularly effective in resolving sciatica pain.
