Sciatica & Back Pain Workshop
Sciatica is a common pain experienced by a large range of age groups that affects the sciatic nerve in which extends from the lower back down the back of the leg. Some symptoms of sciatica include lower back pain, burning or a tingling sensation along the leg, or constant weakness found in either one leg or foot. During this workshop, Dr. Scott covered several key exercises such as Bridging, Lumber Abdominal #1, and the Straight Leg Raise in which have been proven to be effective exercises in reducing sciatica. If you do experience some or all symptoms of sciatica, be sure to come in to our office for treatment or even with some questions so together we can help reduce the symptoms of sciatica.
Preoperative treatment usually takes approximately three weeks during which time the above mentioned goals are met. We use a variety of modalities including ice, electric stimulation, laser, ultrasound, and exercise as well as manual techniques like mobilization and massage. Patients are instructed in knee sparring ADL (activities of daily living), ways to protect the knee during daily life. They are also instructed in balance activities to increase the patient’s awareness of the position of the knee when performing activities. Patients are given a home exercise program, which also acts to educate them for after surgery.
