Sciatica | 4 Common Medical Conditions Our Osteopaths Can Help Treat

Have you experienced pain radiating from your lower back through the hips and buttocks and ending just below your knee? In this case, you might have Sciatica. This condition occurs when the sciatic nerve, which runs from the lower back down through the hips and buttocks and into each leg, becomes compressed or irritated. When this happens, you may experience weakness or difficulty moving your leg.

Our osteopaths can help treat your Sciatica by using various techniques to reduce inflammation and improve the alignment of your spine and pelvis. Our Sciatica treatments include soft tissue manipulation, joint mobilisation, and spinal manipulation. We will also recommend exercises and stretches to improve your posture and minimise the risk of future sciatic episodes.

2. Sports injuries

We will assess your injury before working with you to develop a customised rehabilitation plan that includes exercises and stretches to help your body regain strength and flexibility.
