What is

The Treatment for Low Back Pain and Sciatic Nerve Referral

Low Back Pain and Sciatic Nerve referral treatment.

Low Back Pain and Sciatic Nerve referral treatment provided by our physiotherapist in Ballito. We have  extensive experience in treating Low Back Pain and Sciatic Nerve referral treatment

Low Back Pain and Sciatic Nerve referral treatment

Low back pain can come from the various components that make up this commonly affected area namely the lumbar spine made up of joints, discs and ligaments, muscles that protect and move the low back and the spinal cord and nerves.

The sciatic nerve is made up of the spinal roots of L5 to S3 which come from the lowest levels of the low back and is the most commonly affected nerve of the lower back because it is where a lot of the load and movement takes place in everyday activities and positions.

The first step of the process is for the Physiotherapist to do an assessment to establish which of these structures is the source of your low back pain.

Then to use the appropriate Physiotherapy services mentioned before under acute pain management such as spinal joint, soft tissue and nerve mobilization, as well as Ultrasound therapy and advice on which positions and exercises will help with pain relief and which activities and positions would aggravate the pain.

It is also important that the Physiotherapist teaches you how to correctly activate your core muscles as this is the absolute essential foundation for core strengthening exercises. The stronger the core muscles become, the more the spine is protected and the less load on the more vulnerable parts of the low back.

Conditions We Treat:

Tennis and Golfer’s Elbow

If you stand with your arms by your side with your palms facing forwards then tennis elbow is when the pain is on the side of your elbow that is furthest away from your body and golfer’s elbow is on the side closest to your body. Both are conditions of the tendons that move your wrist up and down and definitely are not limited to those who play tennis or golf. As a Physiotherapist I

Trochanteric and Subacromial Bursitis

Bursae are small sacs of fluid that occur normally in various places in the body including on the side of your hip or upper thigh (trochanteric) and under the bone at the very top of your shoulder (subacromial).

Muscle strains and tendon sprains

For the first 12 days after a muscle (strain) or ligament (sprain) tear the body sends inflammation to the area which contains the ingredients necessary for healing but this inflammation also contains chemicals that irritate the nerve endings which is what causes pain. It is important to leave

Arthritis

What is very important to remember with arthritis is that it does not develop overnight and could have been there for years before the pain started. Also that arthritis is a normal aging process that will be

Often when a shoulder injury is left untreated for a prolonged period it can lead to a frozen shoulder which is when the capsule around the shoulder joint becomes extremely stiff and results in very limited shoulder movement for up to 2 years! This is what we always try to avoid

Shoulder pain, rotator cuff tendinopathy and strains

The shoulder is held in place by a set of five very important muscles that attach to the shoulder blade called the infamous rotator cuff! The mistake so many patients make is to think of rotator cuff injuries as one size fits all when there is actually a long spectrum ranging from just overuse

Neck pain and headaches

Neck pain often comes from cervical postural syndrome which is caused by long periods spent driving or sitting at a computer for example in the incorrect position or posture which leads to certain muscles of the neck being placed under a lot of unnecessary load which leads to dysfunction in these muscles and trigger points being activated which can even cause referrals into the head and face.
