So, I am a non-chiropractor person too, and I have sciatica. I had BIG problems with it when I first started running, but I gather that you are not a newbie. I wonder what's changed for you?
For me, having a gait analysis done revealed that I was crossing my arms in front of my chest, causing my body to twist side to side as I ran. I was also (ahem) sticking my butt out! Once I learned to control my core and swing my arms straight back and forth, the back pain went away.
Seeing the doc or physio is important, in my humble opinion. If you can get in to see a sports physio all the better. As Nancy said, you should find out what is causing your pain. I hope you get to the root of it soon.
