Osteopathy For Sciatica – Treat Painful Sciatica Symptoms

Sciatica is a common condition, but that doesn’t make it any less painful or debilitating. Sciatica occurs when the sciatic nerve, which runs from the lower back and down each leg, is irritated or damaged. This causes pain, numbness, tingling and weakness in the lower back, buttocks or legs.

Although painkillers can help reduce the pain caused by sciatica, they don’t get to the root of the problem. If the cause of sciatica isn’t identified, it can be hard to find the right treatment path to rid the patient of pain and discomfort for good.

Osteopathic medicine is a more holistic approach. Rather than just looking at conditions or symptoms, a doctor of osteopathic medicine looks at the whole patient. This approach yields better recovery outcomes for patients, allowing them to get back to everyday life without the discomfort and pain of sciatica.

When To See An Osteopath For Sciatica?

You should see an osteopath for sciatica as soon as possible if you experience symptoms. Not only can a doctor of osteopathic medicine diagnose what is causing your sciatica, but they can also put an effective treatment plan in place to prevent symptoms returning.

What Can Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine Treat

Osteopathy is a practice that focuses on the body’s musculoskeletal and visceral system. By using a range of manual therapy techniques to manipulate joints, muscles, fascia and tissues, the goal of osteopathy is to improve mobility and reduce pain.

Osteopathic manipulative medicine, which uses manual manipulation techniques, as well as massage and exercises, restores balance within the body and promotes good mental and physical well-being.

The gentle yet effective approach of osteopathy means that it’s perfect for treating a range of conditions like neck and back pain, headaches, sports injuries, stress and problems with posture.
