Sciatica also known as sciatic pain is the term used for any "referred pain" felt down the sciatic nerve.
The sciatic nerve originates from your lumber spine (L4/L5 and S1) and runs down into the buttocks, piriformis, hamstrings and thigh.
Compression of this nerve can cause severe symptoms such as pain, tingling, weakness and numbness anywhere along its entire length down the posterior chain and sometimes into the toes!!!
Jayden our Head Myotherapist has successfully treated over 500 cases of Sciatica. He suggests to get any symptoms assessed as soon as possible to avoid potential ongoing nerve discomfort.
Once sciatica becomes chronic (6 months+) it can become long-term nerve compression and can permanently damage the nerve and it's function, which may lead to needing surgery.
