Improve Joint Mobility And Physical Function With Our Of Professional Osteopathy For Sciatica
The muscles, tendons, ligaments, and nerves that make up our body are interconnected in a sophisticated manner. The sciatica nerve, one of the largest in the body, extends from the lumbar spine into the area of the buttocks, and when too much pressure is put on it, you will experience severe pain.
Sciatica, commonly referred to as "lumbar radiculopathy," is a severely painful ailment brought on by sciatic nerve irritation. Sciatica develops when the sciatic nerve is pinched. The most common causes are a herniated disk in the spine or an accumulation of extra bone, often known as bone spurs, on the spinal bones. This pain is frequently felt behind the leg and in the lumbar region. Sometimes, the discomfort extends down to their lower limbs.
About 25% of the population suffers from the incapacitating ailment of sciatica.
With sciatica, bending, walking, and exercise can be excruciatingly painful. Lumbar disc herniation is the most common cause of sciatica and can also be brought on by back injury and degeneration.
At La Dolce Studio in Fulham, our osteopathic therapists have a lot of clinical expertise in managing and treating sciatica.
We guide our patients to a balance point to help prevent aggravating the pain, whether it is acute, severe, chronic, or long-term. Our treatments require minimal movement, so you can be sure we will relieve your pain instead of adding to it.
Along with treating your sciatica, our osteopathic physicians will also focus on other parts that target spinal issues. This will help reduce your back pain considerably so that you can spend quality time doing the things you love without getting distracted by your pain.

Sciatica refers to a pattern of pain that radiates from the lower back down the buttock, back of the thigh, and into the leg and foot. However, it doesn't adequately clarify what might be causing the pain or discomfort. It is more of a broad term that can describe various conditions that can cause this type of discomfort.
Sciatica can result from:
A prolapsed, bulging or slipped disc in the lumbar spine
Disc degeneration in the lumbar spine
Arthritis and degeneration of the spinal joints
Muscle spasms in the lower back and gluteal region
Something as simple as a sprained or locked facet joint in the lower back.
Additionally, it can be caused by spondylolisthesis (slipped vertebra), piriformis syndrome, sacroiliac joint dysfunction, or other more severe disorders, including a tumour or infection. Body changes during pregnancy can also cause sciatica.
Deep-seated pain in the gluteal, hamstring, calf, back of the thigh, buttock, and leg, as well as in the heel and foot, are some sciatica symptoms. Additionally, it may result in burning pain, tingling, numbness, and weakness across the entire leg and foot. Another common complaint is that the discomfort worsens after extended periods of sitting or standing, during or sneezing, or when bending over or leaning back.

Even though sciatica may not pose a life-threatening hazard, it is crucial to get medical attention as soon as the first symptoms appear. Due to its comprehensive approach, osteopathy has proven to be quite effective in treating a wide range of ailments.
