The pain can also radiate to the lower limbs, making it difficult to bend or walk.Themost common cause of sciatica is lumbar disc herniation, but it can be caused by a back injury or disc degeneration, as well. If you have been suffering from lower back pain, or pain that radiates down to your buttocks or even down your legs, don’t hesitate to contact Centra Rehabilitation today. We’ll provide you with the relief you need to live life comfortably once again! Understanding sciatica treatments: Sciatica is diagnosed through a physical examination and an evaluation of medical history. A CT scan or MRI may also be performed, in order to locate the root cause of sciatica. According toMove Forward PT, “Conservative care like physical therapy often results in better and faster results than surgery or pain medication.” Once you are diagnosed with sciatica, a physical therapist will work with you to manage and relieve the condition. This includes: • Reducing sciatica pain. • Improving motion. • Increasing strength. • Improving flexibility. • Educating you on how to stand, bend, and twist. • Returning to normal activities. 3 7

Stretching and strengthening exercises are key to treating sciatica pain. Many exercises can help strengthen the spinal column and the supporting muscles, ligaments, and tendons. Most of these back exercises focus not only on the lower back, but also the abdominal (stomach) muscles, gluteus (buttock) muscles, and hip muscles. Strong coremuscles can provide pain relief because they support the spine, keeping it in alignment and facilitatingmovements that extend or twist the spine with less chance of injury or damage. Stretches for sciatica are designed to target muscles that cause pain when they are tight and inflexible. Hamstring stretching is almost always an important part of a sciatica exercise program. Most people do not stretch these muscles, which extend from the pelvis to the knee in the back of the thigh, in their daily activities. Targeted stretches can help loosen up tight muscles and improve elasticity, thus easing pain caused by sciatica.
