COMMON SYMPTOMS OF SCIATICAThe pain that comes from sciatica normally runs down from the lower back into one of the legs. It can extend to the foot, and the pain usually is worse when you cough or sneeze or when you sit down. The pain can come up with no warning, and last for weeks, so don’t try to wait out the pain. Come see our professionals today.
HOW TO TREAT SCIATICABeing physically active is the best non-surgical treatment for sciatica. Here at Inner West Physiotherapy & Sports Injury Centre, we employ different flexibility exercises and stretches to give that area of your body a good workout. We also use massage therapy, acupuncture, and spinal manipulation to give you relief from nerve pain.
First of all, we will scrutinize your medical history before recommending you any physical therapy. We will consider various essential things in your life, such as your lifestyle, work environment, and prescribed medications. Next, we will conduct a thorough physical examination of yours in our back pain clinic located in Inner West!
These examinations and procedures help us pinpoint the exact cause of your back pain. Once we isolate the underlying issue causing your lower back or sciatica troubles, we can quickly alleviate your pain.
Our physios will then propose a rehabilitation plan for your back pain, in which you will have to do a few targeted exercises regularly. After a few weeks, we will schedule another appointment with you. So, we can assess our rehabilitation course and make some adjustments if needed!
