About Sciatica

Sciatica is a widespread condition that can cause severe pain, discomfort and reduced mobility. The most common cause of sciatica pain is the compression of the sciatic nerve roots located in the spine. This condition is known as “Lumbar disk herniation”. 

When a spinal disc herniates or bulges out, usually between the L3 vertebrae and the S1 sacrum, it can add pressure on the nerves and can lead to painful sensations and tingling along sections of one’s body, such as your lower back, buttocks, or legs. Besides disc herniations, sciatica may be also caused by spinal stenosis or piriformis syndrome. The pain and discomfort may vary depending on the exact location and severity of the pressure applied to the nerves. No individual should take sciatica lightly due to its potential for great pain that could last long-term without proper treatment.

How can a Manual Osteopath treat Sciatica Pain?

The treatment often includes a physical examination, a medical history review, and possibly imaging tests.

Once a practitioner has identified the cause of your sciatica, they will develop a personalized treatment tailored to your needs. This plan may involve a combination of different techniques, such as osteopathy, neuromuscular massage, joint adjustments, remedial exercises and BioFlex Laser.

Soft tissue techniques

The practitioner may use various soft tissue techniques, such as massage or myofascial release, to release tension and improve circulation in the muscles and tissues surrounding the sciatic nerve.

Joint mobilization

Gentle movement of the joints in the affected area to improve mobility and align the body’s musculoskeletal structure. This can also help to alleviate pressure on the sciatic nerve and improve overall function.

Osteo Articular Adjustments

Application of precise and gentle technique to the vertebrae in the affected area to improve spinal alignment and reduce pressure on the sciatic nerve. This technique may also be called spinal adjustments.

BioFlex Laser Therapy

In addition to manual adjustments, an osteopathic therapist may recommend lifestyle modifications and exercises to improve flexibility and strength in the lower back and legs or recommend changes to posture and ergonomics to reduce pressure on the sciatic nerve.

Prevention of Sciatica

 

Regular exercise, maintaining proper posture while sitting, and avoiding activities such as heavy lifting can all help reduce the risk of developing sciatica. Likewise, strengthening core muscles can help keep your back strong and stable, including simple exercises such as planks, deadlifts and squats. Finally, it is crucial to maintain a healthy body weight since excessive weight puts added strain on the lower back. If you have any concerns about sciatica or other uncomfortable or painful conditions in your back, contact us for an advice.

Effectiveness of Osteopathy In Sciatica Treatment

 

Manual osteopathy has been proven effective in providing relief to those suffering from sciatica. Many trials and studies have proven manual osteopathic treatments’ effectiveness since the foundation of the practice in 1874. For example, a study from 2020 published in the Journal of Bodywork and Movement Therapies revealed that manual osteopathic techniques are beneficial for reducing both acute and chronic pain levels.
