Sciatica is often so mild it can be ignored…

Sciatica means pain along the course of the sciatic nerve. The pain may hit suddenly like a lightening bolt, or may be like an excruciating ache in your legs – either way sciatica is a painful experience that’s always down the back or slightly to the outside of the leg.

Unfortunately the term sciatica does not tell you what is causing that pain.

Sciatica is a general term describing pain from irritation or compression of the sciatic nerve. So it’s more of a description of where the pain is, not a diagnosis. Imagine saying you had foot pain – this piece of information wouldn’t explain whether you’d just stubbed your toe, or you’d just had your foot run over. It’s the same with sciatica – you have to have a diagnosis of the cause.

We uncover the underlying cause and work out, with your input, the best course of action.

Sometimes we recommend hands-on treatment and exercises, but if the pain is severe we might recommend some time on the IDD decompression machine.

Either way, we aim to get you back to your normal life again, so don’t panic about the pain – we’re here to help.
