The purpose of chiropractic treatment is to realize the body's potential of self-healing. It is based on the scientific principle that pain, reduced function and performance will result from restriceted spinal movement. More importantly, chiropractic care is non-surgical and drug-free. The type of chiropractic therapy applied depends on the cause of the patient's sciatica. A sciatic treatment plan may include different treatments such as:
  • ice/cold therapies
  • ultrasound
  • TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation)
  • spinal adjustments/manipulation
Chiropractic's limitations in treating sciatica Other disorders beyond the scope of chiropractic practice can also cause sciatica. If the doctor of chiropractic determines the patient's disorder requires another type of doctor for treatment, then the patient should transfer to another specialty. In some situations, the referring chiropractor may keep on treating the patient and co-manage the patient's care with the other specialist. Please consult a doctor if necessary.

I hope someone can answer that because I’m having the same problems. Pain in my lower back going down my leg can’t sit or sleep at night
Chiropractic for sciatica is one of the most popular and widely practiced healing arts used for radicular pain conditions. Chiropractic for sciatica utilizes a variety of treatment modalities, but mainly concentrates on using specialized manual spinal manipulations called adjustments. I think that you should make an appointment with an orthopaedic surgeon and a lumbar CT/MRI examination.
