If you’ve been dealing with sharp back pain for quite some time, it could be due to a condition called “sciatica.”
Each of your sciatic nerves runs from either side of your lower back down to each of your legs. A classic sign of sciatica is having shooting pain on one side only.
While compression of one of your sciatic nerves can literally be a “pain in the butt,” it doesn’t always require medical attention.
However, sometimes physical therapy is your best bet to get rid of sciatica symptoms once and for all.
Physical therapy can help patients deal with this kind of pain.
Our Physical therapists are trained movement specialists who know how to assess your condition properly and figure out if you have any underlying conditions, or if your pain is related to sciatica.
For many people with persistent or severe sciatica, physical therapy can be a lifeline.
You’ll be taught targeted moves that strengthen your lower back.
Strong muscles support the area around your sciatic nerve and can prevent future injuries.
We will also work on improving your posture to keep sciatica symptoms at bay.
Increasing range of motion is also part of physical therapy for sciatica.
BURD Physical Therapy designs individualized treatment programs to help people with sciatica to reduce their pain, move normally, and get back to doing what they love.
