Sciatica

Cairns Chiropractic would like to illustrate the structures involved with sciatica.

The Sciatic nerve (L4,L5,S1,S2) descends between the ischial tuberosity and greater trochanter of the femur.

Symptoms may include weak hamstrings, leg and foot muscles. Sensory loss may also occur in thigh, leg and foot. Pain is associated with sciatica in thigh, leg and foot.
