    Sciatica

    Sciatica is a pain which radiates from the lower back down the sciatic nerve into one or other leg.  Sciatica may also be accompanied by more generalised lower back pain.

    Sciatica can be caused by a slipped disk or by muscular pressure on the sciatic nerve. Sciatica can be aggravated by exertion, coughing, sneezing or straining. In severe cases there may be numbness, weakness and reduction of reflexes in the affected leg.

    At the Pain Care Clinic we use advanced massage techniques and myofascial release to work on the muscles and soft tissues of the back, hips, buttocks and legs in clients with sciatica.

    Please also see piriformis syndrome.

    Please see case studies and testimonials.

    The Pain Care Clinic specialises in myofascial release and advanced massage therapy for private clients with medical diagnoses of chronic pain conditions and acute pain or injuries.
