Sciatica Symptoms And Treatments

Sciatica Symptoms And Treatments

Sciatica can be extremely painful, debilitating condition affecting more than just your physical health but your emotional, mental, social and financial health as well which for most of us can create an unwanted burden. From what used to be basic, subconscious movements such as getting out of the car or playing with the kids, now can become an ordeal for most.

Symptoms of Sciatica include:

  • -Lower Back Pain
  • -Pins and Needles Down The Legs
  • -Numbness, Burning and Tingling Sensations
  • -Sharp and/or Stabbing pain down one or both legs
  • -Weaknesses through the lower back/leg region
  • -Constant Pain
  • -Post Posture
  • -Sleeping Difficulties Due to Pain

If you have one or several of this symptoms it is likely it could be Sciatica. Like many of the patients we see, symptoms, severity and treatments vary from practitioners and treatment modalities.

One of the most beneficial treatment methods is the use of strengthening exercises that we do onsite (Neuro-Muscular Power Training) oppose to the use of exercises and stretches at home which a high percentage of people fail to achieve results with. This is purely because your body obviously has has two sides and most people only strengthening up the injured side, this in return creates more imbalances. If your body is lopsided and compensating for pain and has dysfunction your body becomes non symmetrical causing your symptoms – this is quite evident when we see people in an acute stage of their pain leaning to one side to try and gain some comfort (Stand in front of the mirror to see if you are standing crooked – easiest way is to look at the shoulders and chances are one shoulder will be higher than the other, meaning one hip is higher and one lower creating pelvic and lower back instability causing sciatica)

As well as incorporating a strengthening program we use a range of hands on treatments (Solidified Myoneural Manipulation) to eradicate the pain which targets and reliefs the sciatic nerve and symptoms. Using our hands on treatments we can identify where the pain and dysfunction has originated from and break down the solidified connective tissues that are causing restrictions, lack of movement as well as the pain and discomfort.

The combination of these two treatments has been proven thousands of times over in our clinic giving people their quality of life back, avoiding surgery and mind altering pharmaceutical drugs.
