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.

More information about sciatica
What is sciatica?
Sciatica is pain felt in the lower back and sometimes also through the glutes and down the back of either leg. Some people also feel numbness or a tingling sensation in the leg. It is a symptom, not an issue in itself and it can be caused by a number of different conditions. The most common causes of sciatica are:
- Slipped disk, bulging disk or herniated disk
- Spinal stenosis
- Spine degeneration, spondylosis or spine arthritis
- Nerve entrapment
- Piriformis Syndrome
Most cases of sciatica can be treated with physiotherapy alone, but surgery may be recommended in severe cases of herniated disks spinal stenosis.
