Comprehensive treatment for back pain and sciatica

So, how will physical therapy in Columbia address your back pain or sciatica? Let us guide you through a comprehensive treatment plan tailored to your specific diagnosis. Initially, we prioritize quick pain relief, employing targeted techniques to alleviate discomfort. As your pain subsides, we shift our focus to strengthening your core muscles through therapeutic exercises and stretches. This approach enhances your strength and range of motion, significantly reducing the risk of future spinal injuries. Furthermore, we educate you on proper ergonomics and spine care, equipping you with the knowledge to prevent recurring issues.

Specialized care for sciatica

If you’re suffering from sciatica, our physical therapists incorporate specialized leg stretches into your treatment plan, effectively loosening the sciatic nerve. By restoring the nerve’s natural health, we swiftly alleviate your symptoms and help you regain your mobility.

Understanding back pain vs. sciatica

Confused about whether it’s back pain or sciatica? Let us clarify. Sciatica refers to a highly uncomfortable condition where pain radiates along the sciatic nerve—the largest nerve in your body. Starting from your lower back, the pain extends through your buttocks, legs, and down to each foot. On the other hand, back pain is a broader term encompassing various causes, such as poor posture, motor vehicle accidents, or lifting injuries. Our treatment approach takes into account the specific cause, location, and your medical history to ensure optimal outcomes.

Identifying the causes of your pain

What triggers your back pain or sciatica? Generally, back pain stems from injuries resulting from repetitive straining motions or sudden traumas. Underlying conditions like herniated discs or degenerative disc disease can also contribute to the discomfort. Sciatica, technically known as “lumbar radiculopathy,” typically affects individuals aged 30 to 50. It can be caused by conditions like arthritis, bone spurs, or injuries impacting the sciatic nerve. Often, we find that reduced flexibility in the hips and pelvis leads to tightened gluteus and hip muscles, altering spinal mechanics and compressing the sciatic nerve as it passes through these tissues.
