Sciatica

The Body Worx – Sciatica

Sciatica is compression of the sciatic nerve causing sensations of pain along it’s course down the leg.

There are many reasons why there may be pressure or compression on the sciatic nerve and it is important to elicit the exact cause in order to get optimal recovery. Many people describe sciatica as any pain that starts in your back and travels down your leg, but this is not true sciatica. Our detailed Osteopathic assessment can identify the root cause of your pain and this will determine the best treatment approach. At The Body Worx we see many clients with sciatica every week and our success in helping these clients comes from our detailed analysis and then the application of the appropriate treatment. We utilise a gentle approach that nurtures the body to healing and believe that given the right conditions the body has the ability to heal itself. We support this with exercise and advice to ensure the weaknesses are resolved to give you lasting pain relief and renewed strength.
