The Sciatica nerve is the largest nerve in the body. It spans from your lumbar, separating at your legs and further down ending at your feet. Pain typically originates in your spine and radiates down the back of the leg, usually only affecting one side of your body. Sciatic pain is commonly self-diagnosed and confirmed by a chiropractor.

Mild, severe, radiating, or sharp pain in the back, buttocks, hip, or lower extremities that feels like a numbness or pins and needles. This can happen due to long periods of sitting or various sports injuries and can cause muscle weakness or difficulty walking and/or standing.
