At Our Chiro we offer people in Brisbane sciatica treatment that is non-invasive. Sciatica is a relatively common complaint that we treat using various chiropractic and musculoskeletal methods.
Sciatica is nerve pain arising from the sciatic nerve and is a very common condition. It can have a few causes such as disc bulges, degeneration or even a tight muscle such as the Piriformis. It can be produced by pressure on the nerve, where it passes through the buttock.
Therefore, it is important to accurately diagnose the cause of your sciatica.
One of our chiropractors will complete a thorough assessment in order to determine the cause of your sciatica. This will include taking a thorough medical history and conducting a physical examination. In some cases, we require a neurological examination. Additionally, we also commonly require diagnostic imaging and testing.
By identifying the cause of the sciatica, we can develop an effective treatment plan can be developed. We provide some of the most researched sciatica treatments in Brisbane.
Research has shown chiropractic and musculoskeletal therapy help with the treatment of sciatica. Depending on the cause of your sciatica, your chiropractic therapy might incorporate a few different types of treatments. Treatments include manual adjustments, muscle release techniques, dry needling and rehabilitation exercises.
Whilst we strive to offer our clients quick and effective pain relief, we do recognise that sciatica can be caused by factors beyond the scope of chiropractic; for example when surgery is necessary. In such cases, we will refer to you the appropriate medical professionals to ensure you receive the best possible Brisbane sciatica treatment.
