The Sciatica Nerve
This is the largest nerve in the body--it extends from the lower spine down the back of the thigh to the knee. There it divides, and one nerve goes down the front, and the other down the back of the lower leg.
 
Inflamation of the sciatica nerve is most frequently triggered by an irritated nerve root. A misalignment in the spinal column can irritate the roots of the sciatic nerve as they pass between the vertebrae.
 
Pain from the sciatica nerve is often referred to as a "shooting pain". It moves up and down the nerve and stabs you with sharp, agonizing pains. Sometimes it can even cause a wasting away of calf muscles. Patients often compare their pain level to the worst toothache imaginable.
Areas Affected

Sciatica only affects the hip, the thigh and the back of the leg--sometimes the ankle and foot. It may hit all those points at once, or it may skip about from point to point.
 
Victims often times seek relief through hot or cold applications, they try to soothe the place that hurts, but this is fruitless, as the source is 'way off--up in the lower back'. 

How To Get Rid Of Sciatica

Go to a Doctor of Chiropractic. Your chiropractor locates the misaligned vertebrae and realigns them properly, through gentle adjustment.
