Sciatica, the word and diagnosis every patient seems to know. Sciatica simply refers to the symptoms of pain, weakness or tingling in the legs as a result of compression or injury to the sciatic nerve. In two previous posts “Sciatica – Surgery Not Included” and “Sciatica – Part II” I discussed in more detail the diagnosis of sciatica. Today, I want to discuss the results of a study that compares head-to-head chiropractic manipulation and surgical microdiskectomy for the treatment of sciatica.
