What is sciatica and why should you have it treated?

We see people suffering with Sciatica every single day here at Spinal Care Clinics. It’s one of the most common complaints that people come to us with.

It can destroy your ability to function normally and do the things you enjoy and really doesn’t have to be something you just ‘put up with’. You don’t have to live like this. And we can help.

Did you know that 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 have sciatica, it can seriously affect your day to day life. We know how debilitating it can be, so let us help.


 What are the possible causes of Sciatica?

To find out if what is causing you pain is actually sciatica, then check this list. If you are not sure, come and see us.

  • a bulging or herniated lumbar disc,
  • infection,
  • 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, sciatic pain in men has even been caused simply by sitting on a wallet

What can we do about it?

Sciatica is not going to fix itself. You probably know that, that’s probably why you are here.

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. You can’t just ignore this. It needs treatment.

Fortunately, with a combination of stretches, deep tissue massage therapy and chiropractic care, sciatic pain can be significantly relieved. 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 a 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, you can alleviate your sciatic pain and actively reduce your chances of suffering from severe sciatic pain in the future.

We treat patients like you every day, and use spinal manipulation to relieve the pressure on the nerve so the body can heal itself.


Our team of expert chiropractors use modern equipment to diagnose your health problems. This includes: Digital X-Rays machine, Advanced BMI device, Digital posture Analysis and software to precisely diagnose the root cause of your lower back pain. We will then tailor for you an effective treatment plan using advanced chiropractic techniques using modern equipment such as; electric treatment benches, Arthrostim device, Activators & Blocks.
