Chiropractic and Physiotherapy treatments for Sciatica
Chiropractic and physiotherapy remain the leading treatment option for sciatic pain relief. Rather than just treating the sciatica symptoms, our practitioners at Spinal and Sports Care seek for the cause of sciatica in order to gain long-term effectiveness and prevent recurrence. Common chiropractic/physiotherapy methods with the highest level of evidence include:
Functional assessment of movement or sport/gym technique
The treatment method chosen is based on the cause of sciatica for each individual. All sciatica treatment methods share the same goal of reducing pressure off the sciatic nerve.
There is a complex interplay between biological, psychological and social factors that contribute to sciatica. This is why physiotherapists and chiropractors may need to work in conjunction with other health practitioners such as general practitioners or psychologists.
