Sciatica

 

Sciatica is caused by an impingement of the sciatic nerve. This is either where the nerve

comes out of the spine or can also be in the hip and leg muscles as well.

 

Sciatica is common in people who spend large parts of their day sitting. The pressure of

the weight of their body pressing on the nerve can irritate it.

 

The symptoms of Sciatica include:

  • shooting pain or electricity down the leg

  • tingling in the leg or toes

  • pain in the buttock

  • pain in the back

  • stiffness in back, hip and leg muscles

 

Muscle Therapy can help to take the pressue off the sciatic nerve and allow proper function and gliding of the nerve.

Stretching the Hamstrings, lower back and Quadratus Lumborum muscles can help keep this pressure from building up in the back. Core strengthening will give you more stability in the spine and less liklihood of sciatica.

 

Techniques that can help back pain include:

  • Sports & Remedial Massage

  • Active release techniques (ART)

  • Myofascial Release

  • Fascial Manipulation

  • Dry Needling

  • Trigger Point Therapy

  • Deep Tissue Massage

  • Functional Massage.
