Sciatica is a terms used to describe pain caused by trapped nerves as a result of inflammation or compression of the spinal nerves.
If you are suffering from a disc injury such as a prolapsed disk, herniated disc or from leg pain caused by a trapped nerve, we can help.
We specialise in the treatment of Sciatica/disc injuries and research suggests that *86% of people will experience “good” to “excellent” relief of Sciatica and back pain by the end of treatments.
This is because, alongside manual therapy and where indicated, we use a specialist spinal decompression table as part of our treatment.
The table is designed to gently ease pressure between discs to aid recovery and it’s clinically proven to ease the compression that is the cause of the Sciatica *(over 90% reduction of disc herniation in 71% of patients).
To complement this treatment, we often use acupuncture as an adjunct therapy as well as giving patients a tailor made exercise programme to speed up recovery.
