Our treatment method

During the first session, the therapist will carry out a postural assessment as well as range of motion assessment and pain assessment when needed in order to choose the appropriate treatment plan for you. These will be reassessed at the beginning of each follow up session as well. 

 

The treatment method consists of advanced myofascial release techniques, trigger point work and advanced stretching techniques, combined and executed using a whole body approach whereby the whole body is considered as one interrelated unit and included in the treatment as necessaryThis increases the effectiveness of the treatment and it produces long lasting results. 

 

Using the lower back protocol and the hip and pelvis protocol, most of the work will be concentrated around the lower back, hip and thigh muscles and fascia.

 

The therapist’s focus will be releasing pain levels and any other related symptoms the patient is presenting with, as well as releasing secondary structures that might be contributing to the development of the presentation.

Understand how to treat sciatica by understanding how and why it happens

Sciatica refers to pain that radiates along the path of the sciatic nerve, which branches from the lower back through the hip and buttocks and down each leg (back of the legs). 

 

This is caused by the irritation of the sciatic nerve, it usually affects one side and it happens when something compresses or rubs the nerve. 

 

There are different factors that contribute to the development of sciatica. Most of them originating from poor body structural patterns and poor functionality that develop with our lifestyle and muscular imbalances. 

 

Compression of the sciatic can happen anywhere along the nerve’s path to the foot. There are a few areas where, due to our anatomy, the nerve is most vulnerable and therefore where it tends to be compressed. 

 

These are:

 

1. Compressed by a slipped disk or overgrowth of bone (bone spur). This happens at the spine, at the beginning of the nerve’s path. 

 

In this case and once the acute phase is over, its important to release and strengthen all muscle tissue and fascia around the place of injury as well as other muscles and structures that were causing the pattern that led to the injury. 

 

2. Compressed by a muscle at the gluteal area. This is the most common cause of persistent pain down the back of the leg and its prognosis is better as it can be easily and fully addressed with the right treatment.  

 

In this case, the sciatic nerve has a narrow path on its way through the hip muscles and gets normally compressed by a tight Piriformis muscle. 

 

Other hip muscles like the hip rotators can also mimic sciatica symptoms.

 

We learnt that things as simple as carrying the wallet in the back pocket can also inflame the nerve.

 

The treatment in this case will be focused on releasing the hip, thigh and lower back muscles/fascia.  

 

3. Hamstrings strain can also mimic sciatica symptoms.  

 

4. Calf muscles that are tight can also mimic sciatica symptoms. 

 

These last two points have also a good prognosis. 

 

The treatment method we use is effective in all 4 scenarios for the release of pain and symptoms. The amount of sessions needed will differ for each individual case and the results will vary depending on the gravity of the presentation and degree of tissue damage as well as other psychosocial factors.
