At L.I. CARE PHYSICAL THERAPY AND OCCUPATIONAL THERAPY, we offer sciatica therapy to relieve and fix any pain you have. Our physical therapists have the skills necessary to reduce the causes of discomfort. We strive to reduce your pain within the first session of treatment.

Sciatica refers to the pain that radiates along the sciatic nerve, which is the longest nerve in the body. The sciatic nerve starts in the lower back, runs through the buttocks, and down to the legs. Sciatica pain can range from mild to severe and can be felt in different parts of the leg, depending on where the nerve is affected.

The most common cause of sciatica is a herniated disc in the lower back, which puts pressure on the nerve. Other causes can include spinal stenosis, degenerative disc disease, spondylolisthesis, or a pinched nerve.

Symptoms of sciatica can include sharp pain or a dull ache, numbness or tingling sensation, weakness in the leg or foot, and difficulty moving the leg or foot.

Physical therapy can play a crucial role in the treatment of sciatica by helping to relieve pain and improve mobility. A physical therapist can design a personalized exercise program that can help reduce inflammation, strengthen muscles, and improve flexibility. Physical therapy can help treat sciatica, including gentle stretching exercises, strengthening exercises, manual therapy, posture correction, and education on proper body mechanics.
