Chiropractic treatment can offer relief from sciatic pain. If the sciatic nerve becomes compressed, pain may occur in the lower back and either one or both legs as the sciatic nerve runs through the lower back, hips and buttocks. The pain may fluctuate in severity and occurrence, and may even be constant.

Patients with spinal stenosis, herniated or bulging discs may suffer from sciatica when the sciatic nerve is compressed and becomes swollen causing pain.
