Sciatica Physical Therapy

I have had chronic neck and back issues for as long as I can remember. So far, this has been the only place that has relieved me of my pain and who showed me things to do at home to help myself. I am so happy that I chose to have my PT done by Therapydia Nola. Jonathan gives you the utmost attention during your session and his method of treatment is very easy to follow and the results are very positive. The atmosphere in the facility is very pleasant also.

I am currently being treated for a degenerative back problem at Therapydia by Jonathan Burke. This is the first PT facility & Therapist I would actually “Refer” to! Feels like a “Gym” & Great Hands on Treatment! Professional, Caring, Friendly & Helpful!

– Mary K.

My therapy has greatly improved and enhanced my mobility and reduced back pain. It has been better than any medicine I have ever taken. I will recommend to all my friends and anyone who will listen. Thanks so much see you next time !!!

What is Sciatica?

Generally, Sciatica is a term that is commonly used to describe pain, weakness, numbness, or tingling that radiates down the back of the leg. Typically, the symptoms follow the distribution of the sciatic nerve, but there can be some confusion as to the source of the pain especially when the patient’s symptoms are referred.

Here are the conditions that might be causing your sciatica:

  • Sciatic nerve and piriformis muscle irritation or pinching usually by a herniated disc
  • Bone spur or overgrowth in your spine
  • Spinal stenosis or narrowing of the spinal canal in the lower back
  • Degenerative disc disease

Signs & Symptoms

    The most common source of sciatica is pressure on the sciatic nerve from a herniation or protrusion of a spinal disc. This pressure on the nerve can create an irritation and inflammatory response causing symptoms to radiate down the leg following the path of the nerve that is compressed.
    You may feel the following:

    • Pain in the rear or leg when sitting down
    • Burning or tingling feeling down the leg
    • Weakness, or problems with moving your leg or foot
    • Contact pain in the buttock

Why Physical Therapy

    Physical therapists can assess movement patterns to determine if the trigger point is the source of sciatica symptoms and correct any movement dysfunction that they find.
