Treatment for sciatica at the Back Pain Relief and Treatment Clinic

In the video, Senior Practitioner, Andrew Jacques demonstrates how gentle the treatment is for sciatica. Small rolling movements are carried out on specific areas of the body which sends messages from the brain to the body to repair itself. This may sound too simple to be effective, however it is the bodies natural response system that is stimulated by theses movements and the results are amazing. We have a high success rate in this particular treatment with 99% of clients treated reported relief after just one session and 96% stated that their symptoms had subsided to the extent that they could lead a normal life again. Long term sufferers of sciatica on average have had 3-9 treatments with some clients requiring a top up treatment every few months.

What is sciatica?

Back pain affects about 80% of adults in the UK at some stage, but is not always connected the the sciatic nerve. Sciatica is the term related to back pain caused by a problem with the sciatic nerve. The sciatic nerve is a large nerve that runs from the lower back down the back of each leg. If this nerve is injured or something puts pressure on it, it can cause pain in the lower back that spreads to the hip, buttocks and  can extend down the leg. For most people, the sciatica pain goes away naturally in a few days. For some people, sciatica can go on for weeks, months and occasionally years, so it is really important to get some medical advice early on.

What are the symptoms of sciatica?

The most common symptom of sciatica is lower back pain that extends through the hip and buttock and down one leg. The pain usually affects only one leg and may get worse when you sit, cough or sneeze. The affected leg may also feel numb,throb, weak or tingly at times with periodic shooting pains down the leg and in ankle and foot. The symptoms of sciatica often come on suddenly and can last for days or weeks. Occasionally symptoms can persist, causing extreme pain and mobility problems, as for some, it becomes impossible to walk. The treatment that we offer for sciatica can reduce the symptoms of sciatica dramatically and in some cases in the first session.

Who gets sciatica?

Statistics show that the people who are most likely to get sciatica are aged over 40 and in physically active jobs. Causes include a herniated disc, slipped discs, and degenerative arthritis of the spine. Less common causes include injury and infection. There various reasons for a person to get sciatica ,some very simple reasons, for example some men have developed sciatica just from carrying a bulging wallet in the back pocket of their trousers! Read below about the risk factors of sciatica:

  • Age. Age-related changes in the spine, such as herniated disks and bone spurs, are the most common causes of sciatica.
  • Obesity. Carrying extra weight will increase the stress put on your spine, excessive body weight may be a contributory factor to the spinal changes that can cause sciatica.
  • Occupation. If you do a job that requires you to twist your back, carry heavy goods or  if you are sitting or drive a car / van for long periods of time may play a big part in sciatica, however there is  no conclusive medical evidence of this link. (This information was collated from data from our practitioner team).
  •  Sitting for long periods. People who sit for prolonged periods or have a sedentary lifestyle are more likely to develop sciatica than active people are.Also we have noted that sitting awkwardly ie using a laptop that is on the arm of a sofa, can also be a contributory factor. Again there is no conclusive medical evidence of this link.
  • Diabetes. A person who has the condition Diabetes affects the way your body uses blood sugar, can increase the risk of nerve damage.
