Sciatica Treatment In Doncaster

Sciatica Is where the Sciatic Nerve that runs for your lower lumbar spine gets compressed causing irritation and debilitating pain. It is a condition that occurs in many age groups but most common in age groups between ages of 30 to 50.  Through working age , we become bodily adapted so this condition is heavily influenced through our daily posture, activity levels, and degeneration of our spine. A bulging disc is often attributed to being a significant cause of sciatica .

True Sciatica can be diagnosed by testing the nerve route in a specific way. There is also a condition called Piriformis Syndrome that mimics Sciatic pain that we tend to look to rule out here at Body Advance.
