Chiropractor Sciatica treatment in Preston

Sciatica is nerve pain that can run down your leg. When pressure is put on the “sciatic nerve” (a nerve that runs from your lower back, down your leg, to your foot), this can cause an immense sensation of pain in one or all of these areas.

What Are the Symptoms of Sciatica Pain?

Sciatica pain is often characterised by:

  • Pain originating in the buttock and radiating down the leg.
  • Numbness and weakness in the muscles of the leg.
  • Tingling sensations often described as ‘pins and needles.’
  • Pain experienced while lifting or exerting pressure with the leg.
  • Aching sensations in the hamstring, back of the thigh, and calf, which can sometimes lead to challenges in controlling and moving the affected leg.

What causes Sciatica?

Sciatica is usually caused by compression or irritation of the sciatic nerve, which is the largest nerve in the body. The most common underlying causes of sciatica include:

  • Herniated Disc: When the soft inner material of a spinal disc pushes through its outer casing, it can press on the adjacent sciatic nerve roots, leading to pain and other symptoms.
  • Spinal Stenosis: Narrowing of the spinal canal can put pressure on the spinal cord and the sciatic nerve roots, leading to pain and discomfort.
  • Degenerative Disc Disease: As discs between the vertebrae break down over time, they can cause irritation or compression of the sciatic nerve roots.
  • Spondylolisthesis: This condition occurs when a vertebra slips out of place and puts pressure on the adjacent nerves, including the sciatic nerve.
  • Piriformis Syndrome: The piriformis muscle, located deep in the buttock, can sometimes compress or irritate the sciatic nerve as it passes beneath or through the muscle.
  • Trauma or Injury: Any injury to the lower back or pelvis, such as a fall or accident, can lead to inflammation and compression of the sciatic nerve.
  • Tumors: In rare cases, tumors can develop on or near the spine, putting pressure on the sciatic nerve.
  • Pregnancy: The added weight and changes in posture during pregnancy can cause pressure on the sciatic nerve.
  • Muscle Imbalances: Weak or tight muscles in the lower back, buttocks, or legs can contribute to sciatic nerve irritation.

How Can We Help With Sciatic Pain?

Andrew can employ a combination of chiropractic methods, Massage Therapy, and Clinical Pilates to effectively address sciatic pain and its underlying causes. Here’s how each approach can contribute to relieving sciatic pain:

  1. Chiropractic Methods: Chiropractors use spinal adjustments and manipulations to realign the spine and reduce pressure on the sciatic nerve. By restoring proper alignment, nerve irritation and compression can be alleviated, leading to reduced pain and improved nerve function.
  2. Massage Therapy: Massage therapy can target the muscles, ligaments, and soft tissues surrounding the sciatic nerve. Through techniques such as deep tissue massage, trigger point therapy, and myofascial release, muscle tension and knots can be addressed, promoting relaxation and improved blood circulation. This can help alleviate muscle spasms and reduce pressure on the sciatic nerve.
  3. Clinical Pilates: Clinical Pilates focuses on strengthening the core muscles, improving posture, and enhancing overall body stability. Andrew as a qualified Clinical Pilates Instructor can tailor exercises specifically for individuals with sciatic pain, targeting muscle imbalances and weaknesses that contribute to nerve compression. Engaging in clinical Pilates can help improve spinal alignment, reduce pressure on the sciatic nerve, and prevent future episodes of pain.

Typical duration and frequency of appointments: Each session comprises 20 minutes of hands-on therapeutic care, complemented by an additional 20 minutes of guided gym exercises, repeated twice weekly for 6 to 10 weeks.

By combining these three approaches, Andrew can provide a comprehensive and holistic treatment plan for sciatic pain relief and prevention. This integrated approach addresses both the immediate symptoms and the underlying factors contributing to the pain, promoting long-term recovery and improved quality of life. It’s important to consult a qualified healthcare professional to determine the most suitable treatment plan based on your individual needs and condition.
