Sciatica (Sciatic Pain)

Sciatica is common and painful but chiropractic care can help.

Sciatica is pain along, or irritation to, the sciatic nerve. This nerve begins as 3-5 nerves (usually L4, L5 and S1) that leaves the lower part of the spine and form together to supply the buttock, back of the thigh and lower leg with sensation and control of muscles. Do you have sciatica?

The symptoms DO NOT tell us where the injury is. The injury can occur in many places along the nerve as it journeys out of the spine, through the pelvis, in between the muscles in the buttock and down into the leg. Due to the complex and interrelated nature of the lower back, pelvis and leg it is common that there is more than one structure irritating the sciatic nerve and all aspects need to be addressed.

Common areas of irritation include facet joints, slipped disc, herniated disc, sacroiliac joint injury, piriformis syndrome, injury to the tensor fasciae latae (TFL) also known as the iliotibial band (ITB), hamstrings, dural tension and is affected by postural change and changes to gait.

1) The pain mechanism, what is painful?

2) Injured structures including facet joints, discs, sacroiliac joints, piriformis muscles, TFL (ITB) as well as structural assessment and gait analysis.

3) The nerve information sent between the body and the brain which can result in reinjury and reduced healing rates (proprioception).

I have suffered from severe sciatica since the beginning of 2018. I tried everything, acupuncture, physiotherapists, other osteopaths… for over a year and nothing seemed to work. I ended up on prescribed medication as I was in agony every day. I did not see another option but surgery. Miraculously, I found Jonathan. I started to see changes from the second week and from there it has gradually improved. Jonathan has not only restored my health but has improved my quality of life. I HIGHLY recommend Jonathan to anyone with no doubt. Excellent care provided plus impeccable staff.
