Sciatica is a condition that occurs when the sciatic nerve, which runs from the lower back down to the legs, becomes compressed or irritated. This can cause pain, numbness, or weakness in the lower back, hips, and legs.

Physical therapy can be an effective treatment for sciatica, as it can help reduce pain, improve mobility, and prevent future episodes. Our physical therapists can design a customized exercise program that addresses your specific needs, taking into account the severity of your condition, your age, overall physical condition, and any underlying medical conditions.

Common physical therapy treatments for sciatica include:

  • Stretching exercises
  • Strengthening exercises
  • Aerobic exercises
  • Manual therapy
  • Posture education
