Sciatica rehabilitation with our physiotherapist in London

Physiotherapy plays a very important role in managing pain and inflammation from sciatica. Massage and manual therapy have proven to be useful with the treatment of sciatic pain, as they promote blood circulation and muscle relaxation. As pain and inflammation subside, our specialised London physiotherapist will focus on restoring your normal back range of motion, muscle flexibility and strength. A successful treatment plan for sciatica incorporates strengthening, stretching, and low impact aerobic exercises. Once you are able to return to your normal day to day activities, our physiotherapist will also work with you on correcting your posture and teaching you how to safely perform certain movements that will help you stay pain free longer term.
