Sciatica is a painful condition that affects millions of people in Canada. It usually produces lower back and leg pain caused by a pinched nerve in the lower back. This pain can often be severe, impeding regular activity and being almost intolerable. This pinched nerve can often be caused by a herniated disk, although there can be other contributing factors as well.

There are a variety of sciatica treatments available. Physiotherapy for sciatica should always be included in any short- or long-term treatment plan. At Physio Art, we can treat this acute lower back pain caused by sciatica. Our skilled physiotherapists have experience with a wide range of practices and methods that can help alleviate or completely eliminate your back pain caused by sciatica.

Physiotherapy for sciatica can help restore flexibility to the back, strengthen core muscles, stabilize the spine, and reduce the likelihood of future pain.

Our Approach to Sciatica Pain Relief

We know how difficult it can be to live with the pain caused by sciatica. That’s why our physiotherapists work closely with you to find a treatment plan that works. We customize treatment options and recommendations to suit your needs so you can return to a pain-free life.

During our physiotherapy sessions, there are a number of approaches we can take. Manual manipulation and massage therapy work to release endorphins (a natural painkiller), increase blood circulation, and promote relaxation in the muscles. If your pinched nerve is caused by muscles that are too tight, these types of therapies can give you some pain relief after just one session.

We also make recommendations and provide advice for exercises and lifestyle adjustments to help with sciatica between appointments. We recommend light exercises you can perform to alleviate the pain and prevent it from returning. Physiotherapy for sciatica involves a combination of aerobic conditioning, strengthening exercises, stretches, and movements to increase flexibility and range of motion. These exercises are essential for any successful sciatica treatment plan.

In some cases, our physiotherapists can also work with doctors and other healthcare professionals to advise for surgery and medications. No matter the situation, we will work closely with you to ensure you’re comfortable at all times and we can answer any questions you have about your customized treatment plan.

When patients follow a regular treatment program recommended by physiotherapists, they can recover more quickly from sciatica pain and are less likely to develop more sciatica pain in the future.
