What We Treat


Sciatica is a condition that occurs when the sciatic nerve, which runs from the lower back down to the legs, becomes compressed or irritated. This can cause pain, tingling, numbness, or weakness in the lower back, buttocks, and legs.

The treatment for sciatica depends on the underlying cause and severity of the condition. Conservative treatments, such as rest, ice or heat therapy, and over-the-counter pain medications, may be recommended for mild cases.

It is important to consult with a healthcare professional if you are experiencing symptoms of sciatica, as they can provide an accurate diagnosis and recommend the most appropriate course of treatment for your individual needs.

What can we do to help?

Physiotherapy can be a helpful treatment for sciatica. A physiotherapist can help identify the underlying cause of the condition and develop a personalized treatment plan to help relieve symptoms and improve mobility.

Here are some ways physiotherapy can help with sciatica:

  1. Manual Therapy: Manual therapy techniques, such as massage, mobilization, and manipulation, can be used to reduce pain and improve range of motion.
  2. Education: A physiotherapist can educate patients on proper posture, body mechanics, and ergonomics to reduce strain on the back and prevent future episodes of sciatica.
  3. Acupuncture may be used to help reduce pain and muscle spasms.
  4. Exercises: A physiotherapist can develop an exercise program that targets the muscles in the lower back, hips, and legs. These exercises can help improve flexibility, strengthen muscles, and reduce inflammation.

Overall, physiotherapy can help reduce pain and improve mobility for individuals with sciatica. A physiotherapist can work with patients to develop a treatment plan that addresses their specific needs and goals.
