How common is sciatica?
Approximately 40% of people suffer with sciatica in their lifetime. So it’s a problem we treat every day in our City of London Clinic EC3.
The great news is that most of the patients we see with sciatica will improve using our unique combination of advanced sciatica treatment and corrective exercises.
What causes sciatica?
Sciatica is the medical term for pain in the sciatic nerve. When this nerve gets compressed, it can produce symptoms of pain, numbness or pins and needles in the back of the leg.
Sciatica is most often caused by 2 different conditions.
- Lumbar disc bulge – The roots of the sciatic nerve can get pinched by a slipped disc in the lower spine.
- Lumbar spondylolisthesis – Less commonly, the nerve can become pinched by a slipped vertebrae in the lower back.
Both of these conditions can present with a variety of symptoms. From a mild dull ache in the leg to excruciating pain radiating down to the toes.
Can sciatica be fixed?
Yes! The vast majority of our patients that have sciatica make a full recovery with our unique approach to sciatica treatment and rehab.
It is very important that you see a registered medical professional such as our GCC or GOsC registered clinicians to obtain an accurate diagnosis before starting any sciatica treatment or exercise plan.
