IT’S TIME TO STAND UP TO SCIATICA Sciatica pain can cause you to miss out on life. Don’t let it keep you on the sidelines. One to One is here to help!

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. Physical Therapy Relieves Sciatica Physical Therapists play a crucial role in evaluating and treating sciatica as well as other common back problems. Our Physical Therapists are medical experts with years of training to evaluate your back problem, finding the root cause of your sciatica.

Patient Success Spotlight “Playing sports and 10 years in the Marine Corps and I’m in construction so I’m up and down ladders, and in and out of holes and beating concrete all the time, so it’s a lot of shock on my knee. Since I’ve been coming here, he has shown me a lot of things that I can do on my own for my flexibility and to do things in a proper manner where it will take stress off my knee.” – DeVaughan, Past Patient Why do you have Sciatica? Here is the technical information on why sciatica occurs. The more you know the better off you will be.

The spine has to bear the weight of our trunk and at the bottom of the spinal column is the sciatic nerve. If there are changes in posture, muscle strength or pelvic alignment, the nerve can be compressed which leads to the quite common low back and sciatic nerve pains. The sciatic nerve is the longest and largest nerve in your body. It even reaches down to the foot and therefore, can be irritated anywhere along its path. With sciatica, the consequent ache can be felt anywhere from the base of the spine, the buttocks or the back of the thigh and legs. Even tingling sensations in the toes can be attributed at times to the impingement of the sciatic nerve.

What it means: If your leg with pain, numbness or tingling does not go up as high as the other leg, you likely have Sciatica. Your next step is to see what is causing the pressure on your sciatic nerve. Call us to schedule an appointment...we can help you with that. CALL TODAY! 10 LOCATIONS IN THE AREA FOR YOUR CONVENIENCE
