Sciatica

At West Perth Osteopathy, it is our mission to treat everyone as though they were members of our own family

Sciatica

Caused by compression or irritation of the sciatic nerve (a nerve within the buttock, running down the leg), sciatica is a painful condition with symptoms including:

  • pain in the buttock or down the leg
  • numbness
  • muscular weakness
  • pins and needles or tingling
  • difficulty moving or controlling the leg

Sciatica could be the consequence of a number of underlying conditions and causes. Osteopaths work to identify and treat these underlying conditions, initially by conducting a full musculoskeletal and orthopedic examination.

West Perth Osteopathy

Pressure on the sciatic nerve may be relieved through treatment of the relative joints, tendons, ligaments, muscles and organs. With appropriate Osteopathic management and self-care, sciatica may often resolve quickly.
