Sciatica affects many people. The most important symptoms are radiating leg pain and related disabilities. Patients are commonly treated in primary care but a small proportion is referred to secondary care and may eventually have surgery. We want to prevent that from needing to happen.
In about 90% of cases sciatica is caused by a herniated disc with nerve root compression, but lumbar stenoses and (less often) tumours are possible causes.
At Right Path Physical Therapy, we will help diagnose the cause of your condition and work with you and you doctor to get you better.
