Put an end to Sciatica without surgery & injections and get our life back
Pain manifests in many ways: pain may strike suddenly like a lightning bolt, or perhaps seem more like an excruciating “toothache” in your back, top of the buttock or the whole way down the back of the leg. The pain can vary: from a shooting pain, to pins & needles, and even numbness – either way sciatica is a painful experience.
Sciatic pain feels different for everyone, yet it still has one thing in common across the board.
It can disrupt your whole life
It can stop you playing with the kids
It can affect your relationships
It can give you endless nights of bad sleep
It can make your day to day tasks extremely difficult
Between the shooting pains and the numbness, it can often feel like there is no end to the pain you feel each day.
Patients who we have treated for sciatica often reflect upon how pain has changed them: “I used to be fun”, “I feel tense all the time” and “I have become so irritable since this begun” are comments that we hear all too often. Once the pain has gone, these comments move from reflections like those above, to observations that “I no longer shout at my wife and kids” – pain impacts all aspects of your life.
This year alone we have helped hundreds of people play golf again, play with their kids again and live life in much less pain…
… and we want to help you too!
If this is the case, then I can happily say this may be the most important message you will read today.
Early Sciatic Pain is often so mild it can be ignored – but this is the stage when it’s vital to see an osteopath!
Sciatica is a general term describing pain from irritation or compression of the sciatic nerve and its branches. A prolapsed disc may cause sciatica but there are other conditions, such as spinal decay, that can cause irritation of the sciatic nerve. If left untreated for too long, medical intervention may be required, although surgery is not always successful.
This is why osteopaths stress that treatment begins upon the first hint of sciatic symptoms. These may include numbness or tingling in one or both legs, occasional shooting pains, and tenderness in surrounding muscles. Pain killers will only mask the symptoms while the condition progressively gets worse. Osteopaths are trained to assess the patient to ascertain what the cause of sciatica is. Sometimes the osteopath may need to work in conjunction with other health care professionals to enable the patient to receive the best management for their condition.
Osteopathic care will help combat sciatica, and avoid surgery or long standing pain.
What are the causes of sciatica?
Sciatica is rarely caused by one thing. It is something that builds up over time leading to the onset of pain. Just like tooth decay it dosent happen over night. Stress from poor lifestyle choices such as sitting, lack of exercise, increase weight gain or repetitive actions or incorrect lifting can wear the discs, causing them to bulge or in more serious cases, prolapse (slipped disc). The disc then presses on the sciatic nerve and can be extremely painful and debilitating.
