What is sciatica?

Written by Debby Mar 10 2014


There are many causes of Sciatica ranging from a prolapsed disc to a tight muscle in the low back or buttock. As osteopaths, we carry out orthopaedic testing before we can commence with appropriate and safe treatment.

Impingement or damage to the sciatic nerve at any point along its course can cause symptoms ranging from severe pain radiating down the back of the leg, to pins and needles, numbness, tingling and muscle weakness.

The Luxton Clinic in Chinnor offers Orthopaedic testing, call us today on 01844 352200 for more information
