Treatment for Sciatica Pain Relief

Sciatica is a term used to describe a painful set of symptoms caused by the compression of the sciatic nerve. Some of the most notable signs of sciatica include numbness, tingling, pain, or weakness in the legs. This type of pain can range from mild to severe but can be treated with targeted physical therapy. 

Our experts at Park Physical Therapy will perform a thorough evaluation to confirm your sciatica diagnosis and determine an effective treatment program to produce fast pain-relieving results. Our physical therapists will generally focus on the following areas to promote pain relief and alleviate your sciatica symptoms:

  • Increasing your overall endurance and strength. 
  • Improving your mobility. 
  • Improving flexibility through therapeutic stretching techniques. 
  • Providing education on the proper way to bend, twist, stand, or pick up items. 
  • Performing a postural evaluation. 

At Park Physical Therapy, our experts have access to advanced treatment modalities to address your pain and ensure your sciatica pain stays at bay. There are several treatment modalities used for treating sciatica, including:

  • Stretching Exercises – Stretching exercises help treat stiff and inflexible muscles. For sciatica, stretching the hamstrings can bring about significant relief.
  • Strengthening Exercises – Strengthening exercises that target the trunk and lower body muscles will help keep your spine in proper alignment and reduce stress on the sciatic nerve. 
  • Manual Therapy – Manual therapy is a hands-on approach that can help stimulate blood flow and speed up recovery in painful areas. Massage treatments can help ease pain, reduce inflammation, and relax muscles.
