If you have sciatica, then you’re not alone. The problem affects 10 percent of American adults, and is most common among people ages 25 to 45. Most people with sciatica experience a shooting pain that starts in their lower back and then travels down one or both legs. Sometimes the pain is severe enough to limit mobility and may even make sitting and standing difficult. Physicians usually treat this condition with medication or injections, but studies show that seeing a chiropractor could be very effective in alleviating pain and curing sciatica.
