  2. 2. Introduction • Dr. Adam R. Coates is a Wisconsin-based chiropractic physician who maintains a private practice and treats patients seeking care for back problems and other types of musculoskeletal pain. Patient centered, Dr. Adam R. Coates works to ensure that sound chiropractic practices are in place that contribute to overall wellness. Sciatica is a common back condition that involves various types of pain related to irritated or injured nerves originating in the lower back. One of the possible causes of sciatica is a lumbar herniated disc, which pinches or places pressure on one or more nerve roots and causes pain or numbness that often extends down the leg to the toes. Sciatica stemming from the fourth lumbar vertebra (L4) nerve root often involves symptoms such as numbness in the foot and the medial lower leg.
  3. 3. Sciatica • In addition, it may be challenging to walk on the heels and knee-jerk reflexes may be diminished. Sciatica deriving from the L5 nerve root often involves big toe and ankle weakness. The top of the foot may be painful or numb, with pain centered in the web that spans the second toe and the big toe. Sciatica emanating from the sacrum (S1) nerve root, which is situated at the bottom of the spine, includes symptoms such as decreased ankle-jerk reflex and pain centered on the outside of the foot. In addition, walking on tiptoe or raising the heel off the ground may be challenging. In the presence of such symptoms, it makes sense to consult a qualified chiropractic professional.
