Sciatica is a common term used to describe pain running down the back of the leg. It is a generalised term because sciatica can be caused by a number of different structures and the name does not indicate which structure or structures is involved.

Sciatica is typically a referred pain that is transmitted into the leg, but arising from above. Common sources of sciatic pain are injured discs or spinal joints in the lower back, tight muscles or compressed nerves. There are therefore numerous ways in which sciatica can be triggered.

If you are suffering sciatica the important thing is to seek an assessment with one of our experienced Chiropractors, Osteopaths or Physiotherapists, whom through comprehensive examination will work out where the sciatic pain is likely to be originating from. They will then explain to you the appropriate treatment and give you an idea of how long the treatment may require to be effective. Treatment techniques often included are soft tissue massage, trigger point therapy, and gentle mobilisation of effected spinal joints. They will also explain to you what you can do to assist your body to heal as quickly as possible.
