How can we help?
Sciatica doesn’t heal itself and if left untreated it may worsen over time.
If you suffer from sciatica this is often a warning sign that you have an underlying nerve problem, which is placing pressure on a nerve in your lower back. This shouldn’t be ignored and immediate treatment is advised.
Fortunately, with a combination of stretches, deep tissue massage therapy and chiropractic care, sciatic pain can be significantly reduced. At Spinal Care Clinics, our expert practitioners utilise electric treatment benches and digital x-ray equipment to isolate the source of your sciatic pain and administer treatment to this specific area.
We also recommend deep tissue massage of your lower back and piriformis muscles, which will serve as an effective supportive healing measure following your chiropractic care.
By following these treatments, we can ease your sciatic pain and actively reduce your chances of suffering from severe pain in the future.
We treat patients with sciatic pain every day, and use spinal manipulation to relieve the pressure on the nerve so the body can heal itself.
What is sciatica and why should you have it treated?
Here at Spinal Care Clinics we treat people suffering with Sciatica every single day. Sciatica is one of the most common complaints that our clients come to us with and it can prevent you from functioning normally and doing the things you enjoy.
Sciatica doesn’t have to be something you just ‘put up with’ so this is where we can help.
Your sciatic nerve is the longest nerve in your body, running from your pelvis, through your hip area and buttocks and down each leg.
Your sciatic nerve branches into smaller nerves as it travels down your legs and is fundamental for providing feeling to your thighs, legs, and feet as well as controlling many of the muscles in your lower legs.
That is why when you suffer with sciatica it can seriously affect your day-to-day life. We know how debilitating it can be, and we’re here to help.
What are the possible causes of Sciatica?
To find out if your pain is being caused by sciatica, then check the list below and if you’re unsure please contact us for an appointment.
A bulging or herniated lumbar disc
Sports related injuries
A growth within the spine
Piriformis syndrome. The piriformis is a muscle, which lies directly over your sciatic nerve. If this muscle becomes tight or if you have a spasm in this muscle, it puts pressure directly on the sciatic nerve
In some cases, simply sitting on a wallet has been the cause of sciatic pain.
