Why We Treat Sciatic Pain
Not only is sciatic pain very painful, it is extremely common. Studies suggest lifetime incidence is somewhere between 10% to 40%, and the annual incidence of sciatica is 1% to 5%. Thankfully many of these cases are self-limiting: but those that don’t resolve of their own accord can cause serious issues.
Finding that you can’t perform normal day-to-day activities without severe leg pain can be seriously life-limiting when it’s at its worst. The ability to move, sleep and just ‘be’ comfortably are integral to our most basic sense of freedom and wellbeing. In addition, the ability to move freely is fundamental to us thriving and providing for ourselves and our families.
We take sciatic pain seriously, and our decisive approach to its treatment reflects that.
How To Treat Sciatic Pain
We work hard to relieve your sciatic pain as quickly as possible. Using treatments that mobilise the spine, ease muscle spasm, increase tissue mobility, increase blood flow, decrease inflammation & break up scar tissue.
Our treatments combine some of the most advanced pain management technologies available anywhere with a range of manual pain relief methods. Our vision for the care we provide is pretty simple ‘’All the stuff that actually works and none of the stuff that doesn’t – under one roof’’’.
If you need preventative measures for long-standing sciatic pain we have got you covered. Combining specific sets of core and hip exercises with tailored ergonomic solutions is the key to preventing recurrence in most cases of stubborn sciatic pain.
