The physiotherapy treatment of Sciatica is fairly straightforward. The most important thing is to identify the cause of the problem. This can also usually be done with clinical tests without the need for any scans.
Treatment will also usually consist of manual therapy techniques. To reduce specific areas of tightness and spasm. Often dry needling/acupuncture is used to relieve pain. Importantly you will be shown specific exercises to help ensure normal movement and flexibility of the nerve is restored.
An initial assessment and treatment is 1 hr. Any further sessions are also often usually only 30 minutes. Also most of our patients need only 4-6 sessions to resolve the problem. (However we can usually be more specific after you have been assessed)
