I can tell you from first hand experience, chiropractors will NOT solve your sciatica problem! Go to an orthepedic doctor. Ask him to refer you to a doctor that will give you epidural shots in the lower spine area...it takes 3. After a while, this will not work anymore, and you will have to go in and have an operation on your lower back. I just did, and I am feeling just fine. This does not necessarily mean that you need the disks fused.
