Chiropractor's Though for the Week:  As a practicing chiropractor (in Galloway Township for almost 30 years), there are some conditions that enter my office more than others.  Sciatica (nerve pain down the leg or legs) is one of the most common.  Most chiropractors concentrate on the lumbar vertebra and the lumbar discs, But I have found that 80-90 % of sciatic cases come from a pelvic imbalance / misalignment.  It is very important for the chiropractor to check the sacro-illiac joints, sacral roation and femur joint rotation. All three of these areas can and will contribute to the piriformis muscle (buttock cheek area) grabbing onto the sciatic nerve and causing leg pain.
