STAND UP TO SCIATICA & BACK PAIN
Do you experience pain in the buttock, thigh or even your leg? You may be experiencing sciatica. Sciatica is a common form of back and leg pain that is often misunderstood by sufferers. If you are suffering from sciatica it is important to find the root cause of the low back pain and leg pain. This will quickly and correctly relieve the pain. Having a lot of tests doesn’t mean you will find the root cause. Recent studies show that nearly 1 million of MRIs done for sciatica fail to find a treatable cause. With a new imaging technique called magnetic resonance neurography, 69% of the patients were found to have a trapped sciatic nerve deep in the buttock by a muscle called the piriformis. It is known that in about 25% of the general population, the sciatic nerve pierces through the piriformis muscle and can be susceptible to abnormal pressure and irritation. This can lead to piriformis syndrome, which is the most common cause of sciatica. Why does Sciatica Occur? If there are changes in your posture, muscle strength or pelvic alignment, the sciatic nerve can be compressed which leads to the quite common low back and sciatic nerve pains. Physical therapists play a crucial role in evaluating and treating sciatica as well as other common back problems. Our physical therapists aremedical experts with years of training to evaluate your back problem, finding the root cause of your sciatica.
When coming to Johns Creek Physical Therapy, our friendly and knowledgeable therapists spend time with you. We help you with stretching exercises that will target the piriformis, but may also include the hamstrings and hip muscles to adequately reduce pain and increase range of motion. In addition, our specialized hands-on therapy helps to gently loosen tight muscles and joints in your spine and legs. At Johns Creek Physical Therapy we utilize technology such as laser therapy to get you feeling better. Your pain is quickly relieved and your flexibility restored, so you can feel like yourself again. Our cutting-edge treatments are doctor recommended and are specifically designed for you to reach your healthcare goals. Knowing all this should give you a headstart in warding off painful sciatica. After all, it may be as simple as learning to stand tall.
