If you suffer from sciatica, it is vital to find a treatment option that works for you, when you need it. Our Chiropractic practitioners regularly treat patients with this condition. Sciatica is a painful disorder that is characterised by pain in the lower back or buttock, which travels down the sciatic nerve into one or both legs. Sciatica varies greatly in the frequency and intensity of attacks, which can be occasional, frequent, constant, moderate, severe or debilitating.

Pain may be dull or sharp and they may be other symptoms, such as numbness, tingling or burning sensations.

It is essential you get an accurate, professional diagnosis of your sciatica, as there are many possible causes. To attain a diagnosis, we review your medical history and conduct a thorough physical examination to reveal the underlying cause of your sciatica.

Chiropractic treatment helps the body to heal itself. Restricted spinal movement can lead to limited function and chronic pain, symptoms chiropractic care resolves without the need for invasive surgery or heavy drugs.

We offer a tailor-made treatment plan depending on the type of sciatica form which you suffer. This may take the form of a single or a combination of various treatments, such as ice therapy, ultrasound, and spinal manipulations.

Ice/Cold therapy helps to control your pain whilst reducing inflammation.

Ultrasound provides low heat from sound waves to penetrate deep tissues. This encourages circulation and the reduction of pain arising from muscle spasms, cramping, rigidity swelling.

Spinal Manipulation or Adjustments This line of treatment is at the heart of chiropractic care. By helping to realign the vertebral bodies to their correct position, fuller movement is restored. This in turn helps to eliminate the nerve sensitivity causing the inflammation and other sciatic symptoms. Requiring huge skill and precision, these manipulations are safe, effective, uses minimal force and very gentle pressure.
