Sciatica Pain And Treatment

Find the cause of your sciatica pain and Get Your Life Back

What is sciatica

Do I have a pinched nerve?
What about a slipped disc?
We have all heard of “sciatica” and we sometimes think we have it but do you really?

Your sciatic nerve is the largest nerve in your body, about the circumference of your thumb. It carries messages from your brain through your spinal cord to the many parts of your legs, as well relay messages from those structures back to your brain.

SCIATICA SYMPTOMS INCLUDE:

PAIN IN YOUR LOWER BACK AND HIP

NUMBNESS, TINGLING IN YOUR LEG

TROUBLE SITTING, BENDING

Sciatica Treatment

Sciatica pain relief begins with conservative care with your physiotherapist or chiropractor and can include several different parts. Therapy might involve:

  • Physiotherapy.
    • Manual therapy to restore movement
    • Electrical modalities for pain control
    • Exercise rehab including stretches for sciatica
    • Strengthening exercises
  • Chiropractic. Adjustments improve the mechanics, movement and function of your spine, pelvis and hips. By doing so, there will be less stress on your nervous system and your body will then be better able to repair and heal
  • Posture. Avoid having your wallet in your back pocket
  • Nutrition. Supplements to reduce inflammation
  • Surgery. In cases where conservative care is not successful, surgery is also an option
