Effective and Lasting Treatment for Sciatica

Sciatica is a common condition that affects the sciatic nerve, which is the largest nerve in the body. This nerve runs from the lower back down to the legs and feet, and when it becomes inflamed or compressed, it can cause pain and discomfort.

Using the DBC Program, The Back Clinic specialises in treating Sciatica – which is covered by Medical Aid. If you don’t have medical aid, you can make use of several payment options. Book an appointment today.

Symptoms of Sciatica

The most common symptom of sciatica is pain that radiates from the lower back down to the buttocks, thighs, and legs. The pain can range from mild to severe, and it may be accompanied by tingling, numbness, or weakness in the affected area.

Causes of Sciatica

Sciatica can have several causes, including a herniated disc, spinal stenosis, degenerative disc disease, or even pregnancy. Any condition that puts pressure on the sciatic nerve can lead to sciatica.

Treatment of Sciatica

Fortunately, there are many treatments available for sciatica, including physical therapy, chiropractic care, acupuncture, and medication. In some cases, surgery may be necessary to alleviate the pain.
