A Danish study looked at 44 consecutive patients who experienced sudden low Back pain after bending forward and turning. Examinations by orthopedic surgeons revealed no pathology and a diagnosis of acute sciatica was given in all cases.

All 44 patients received chiropractic care, either in the orthopedic department of the hospital or in private chiropractic clinics. Chiropractic care reduced average sick leave by two thirds when compared with previous patients who only received conventional medical treatment.

Why is the sciatica nerve so painful?

The sciatic nerve is a large nerver running down into your leg. It is a fairly thick nerve and contains pain receptors as part of the bundle. Often times the nerve will become pinched either between your muscles or between muscle and bone, or in a few cases bone and bone; these are all known as sciatica. Since it provides sensation to your entire leg you will feel the pain from it throughout your entire leg. The intensity of pain is caused because it is an actual nerve being pinched as opposed to just a single receptor. Many people will go to massage therapists, reflexologists, or chiropractors to correct sciatica.
