Why Do You Have Back Pain or Sciatica

Physical Therapy Can Help Ease Your Pain Asap!!!

There’s no need for you to suffer from constant pain. Sciatica is a pain that radiates down one or both legs from the lower back along the sciatic nerve. A spinal nerve becomes compressed when a bone spur or damaged disk presses it. Specifically, the upper, middle, or lower backs can experience back pain.

Even though sciatica and back pain are similar, they nonetheless differ and are frequently confused with one another.

Most people’s spines have a few minor abnormalities. Because of this, medical professionals don’t use imaging tests to diagnose sciatica. Rather, they provide you with self-care instructions and workout recommendations. These precautions normally work.

Some signs of sciatica include:

  • Aches and discomforts in your leg, buttocks, and lower back
  • Numbness, weakness, and difficulty moving the foot or leg.
  • Lack of bladder and bowel control
  • “Pins and needles” sensation in your foot
  • Tingling down your thigh.

Your symptoms might become more severe when you bend over, carry objects, sit down, sneeze, or cough, depending on where the compressed nerve is located. 

Various conditions can lead to back pain. Some of them include the following;

  • Bad posture
  • Car accidents
  • Prolonged Sitting
  • Age
  • Herniated disc
  • Sport injuries
  • Arthritis
  • Improper bending and twisting
  • Sciatica dysfunction
  • Over usage of the lower back
  • Stress 

Sciatica pain can be caused because of an irritated, pinched, or compressed nerve in the lower back. The most frequent causes are a ruptured disk in the spine or excess bone growth on the spinal bones. With time and self-care techniques, the majority of sciatica patients obtain relief on their own.

Sciatica can develop as a result of various ailments, such as arthritis, bone spurs, or any other injury that affects the sciatic nerve.

Additional factors for sciatica include:

  • Pregnancy
  • Diabetes
  • Overweight
  • Inconsistent exercise
  • Aging
  • Smoking
  • Muscle cramps in the buttocks or back

There are many other reasons you might be feeling this kind of discomfort, and seeing a physical therapist is the best method to determine the cause of your issue.

Physical therapy is a completely effective treatment for sciatica and back pain. Physical therapy can help you find relief if you suffer from chronic pains, aches, and inconvenience. At Granville Physiotherapy & Sports Clinic, we can provide you with an effective treatment plan to help build muscle surrounding your back and sciatic nerve.

According to the Canadian Physiotherapy Association, every four in five Canadian have experienced back pain in their lifetime. Back pain can be reoccurrence, but it is critical to address it. Otherwise, it might cause poor joint movement, core weakness, and muscular coordination problems. However, physical therapy will help elevate your back pain, heal underlying causes, and avoid recurrences and flare-ups.

When you begin back pain or sciatica treatment, your physiotherapist will focus mostly on pain relief in the early phases of your physical therapy. Following that, our physical therapist will incorporate additional treatments, such as strengthening your core muscle group with therapeutic exercises and stretches. This will improve your strength and range of motion, preventing further back pain and spine injury. In addition, exercises will help provide flexibility and strength training to the full kinetic chain, which is a collection of body segments, joints, and muscles that work together to perform physical movements.

Also, our physical therapists will incorporate specialized leg stretches into your treatment regimen to release the sciatic nerve. This swiftly restores the nerve’s natural health and minimizes discomfort.

Our physical therapists are specially qualified to provide manual treatment, exercise routines, and rehabilitation for lower back pain that radiates. Our therapist will also teach you how to use ergonomic measures to protect your spine throughout regular tasks.

Conservative treatment might not be the ideal choice for individuals who have been experiencing discomfort for more than four months. Patients suffering from chronic discomfort caused by a herniated disk may benefit from back surgery.
