Physical Therapy for Sciatica in Utah

Physical Therapy for Sciatica


As one of the most common causes of back pain, there are an estimated 3 million reported cases of sciatica in the United States annually. Sciatica is distinguished as a pain that originates in your lower back and then spreads into the hips, buttocks, and down one leg and into the foot. Numbness and tingling are also common. The pain originates from aggravation to the sciatic nerve, which runs from your lower spine down into your legs. Fortunately, most cases of sciatic can be cured with a trip to your physical therapist in Utah. At Rock Run, we treat many patients that complain of sciatica related pain. If you believe you are experiencing a case of sciatica, the physical therapists of Rock Run can help you find relief.

There are various causes that may lead to sciatic, including:
  • Herniated lumbar intervertebral disk – If your vertebrae becomes herniated, it can put pressure on the surrounding nerves. If this nerve happens to be the sciatic nerve, you can expect sciatica pain.
  • Stenosis – Stenosis, or a narrowing of the holes in your vertebrae through which the nerves exits, can put enough pressure on your sciatic nerve to cause pain and numbness.
  • Intervertebral disk fluid – This natural occurring fluid is found within vertebrates and cushions them. If it makes contact with a nerve, it can irritate it, which could cause sciatica.
  • Segmental movement pathology – When you move your body around, your spine moves as well. If your vertebrae are stuck or stiff, they will not move enough to follow the natural movement of your body and this can lead to excess pressure on your sciatic nerve.

If you are searching for physical therapy in Utah to cure your sciatica, Rock Run is here to help. Our physical therapists are skilled in working with patients who experience sciatica pain due to various causes. Whether your pain is related to movement and alignment issues or a more specific nerve issue, our physical therapists can help you find relief. We will assess your body and pain level in order to determine the cause of your sciatica and develop a personalized healing plan. When you visit our physical therapists in Utah, you can expect healing that lasts. We will treat you onsite and give you exercises you can complete at home to prevent future pain. Contact us today to make an appointment for sciatica physical therapy.

    I have been coming to Rock Run for six years now but last year I had reverse shoulder replacement in February and a knee replacement in July. I have been coming to therapy since March of this year. Josh has been my main therapist but all of them have worked with me. I’m very pleased with their treatments and helping me. I not only feel they are the best but have become very good friends with them all. They are kind, considerate and professional. Actually, I will miss them.

    Thank you so much! It was so painful to do most any movement especially after surgery. Now I’m walking, bending over and on my way to doing most whatever I want. I’m looking forward to many fun pain free activities. You’re all awesome, friendly and kind. I’ve really enjoyed my visits here.

    Thanks for a Covid FREE environment!!

    I was so worried about physical therapy after my shoulder surgery. I had heard stories and thought I would be in constant pain. I’m so glad I was wrong! Brenda and Bailee were amazing and I was never uncomfortable or in pain. Not to mention they are awesome ladies. Everyone at Rock Run took great care of me. I am so glad I came here!

    My experience at Rock Run has been amazing. I couldn’t have expected anything more out of physical therapy. Jerrin and Brittnee helped me gain my confidence back, and have helped me back to a level of activity I had been missing for over a year. Some days seemed like torture, which I’m sure they enjoyed, but it was absolutely worth it in the end.

    I can’t stress enough how great everyone at Rock Run Physical Therapy has been. When I came to see them this time around, I was in so much pain, every step was excruciating and I couldn’t stand for more than 15 minutes at a time, and I was icing my foot for hours a day. Now I can stand and walk around for hours at a time with virtually no pain. I am able to play with my granddaughter and chase her around the house. I love Rock Run Physical Therapy this is the only place I will come to for physical therapy.

    One day I awoke in the morning and found I could not walk upright, but pain in the lower back and joints felt debilitating. All day I worked to loosen up and straighten up but could not. So, I called Rock Run PT where I have found help for injuries and recovering from past surgery on my rotator cuff, and knee. Once again, the people at Rock Run were very kind and professional in assessing my needs and beginning a PT program that has reversed my bent over body to being fully functional again. Thankful for Josh, Don, Amanda, Brandon, the receptionists – all wonderful people who make Rock Run a positive experience for those who need it!

    I had a lot of back pain when I first came in. I feel so much better now. I can climb stairs without pain and walk a good distance. That was my goal – to become a walker again! Thank you all so much.

    First off, you guys are awesome! I hurt my knee August 13th, not sure what I did. I rested it for about 5 days, it was so swollen and painful. It did ease a little over time. I saw your ad on Facebook and decided I’d had enough pain. I really didn’t think it would feel this good again. I teach dance and tumbling, up and down a lot. It was hard not to be able to do my regular routine, it hurt to walk, to bend my knee, to go up and down stairs. It was hard to sleep. But now, amazing! Thank you so much for finding what worked. Ive always been grateful our bodies can heal if given a chance. I would recommend and encourage everyone I know to come here. Thank you Brenda, Bailee and JT.

    When I first came to Rock Run Physical Therapy, I was in a lot of pain with my shoulder. I would avoid using it as much as possible. Now, at the end of my sessions, I am experiencing very little pain. Everyone at Rock Run has been very friendly and professional. They listen to my issues with my shoulder and try different techniques and methods to alleviate the pain. I would highly recommend them to anyone wanting to live a pain-free life!

    “Well first and foremost, I want to thank Brenda and Bailee, and the whole staff at Rock Run Syracuse, for the hospitality and their service they’ve provided. It’s truly a pleasure to meet people like that. Before I got to rock Run, I wasn’t prepared for it, but during and after the time there I felt good.”

    I came to Rock Run after having shoulder replacement surgery. The staff immediately made me feel comfortable and confident I would have a well-functioning shoulder joint. Just a few months later and I do. Loved the warm, friendly and professional staff. Jerrin, Brittnee and Sara are all the best! Their knowledge and techniques are right on the mark and definitely just what I needed. Thanks to all at Rock Run.

    From my first phone call to setting up and scheduling appointments, for the prehab work, to the actual physical therapy experience, Rock Run is an exemplary team of great professionals. Josh and staff, you’re the BEST and I really appreciate all of the help you gave me on my pre and post knee replacement journey. I am feeling stronger every day! Thank you all so much!!!

    Rock Run, and specifically Jerrin and Brittnee saved me. Before therapy I was limping and in pain! I worked with Rock Run for pre-op therapy to prepare for a total knee replacement, and then after the surgery for recovery. I believe the physical therapy I received through Rock Run accelerated my recovery and after 6 weeks post-op, my surgeon said I had met the 3-month goals! Thanks Rock Run, Jerrin, Brittnee and all!

    Had a lot of tension in neck. Had hard time moving it from side to side. Started therapy with bands, heat, and stretches. After 2 weeks twice a week I could feel a difference. Less neck pain and able to move neck a lot better. Also started the dry needling and I loved that so after 6 weeks twice a week I have very little to no neck pain or headaches (didn’t mention that above – neck pain caused headaches). I would recommend Rock Run to anyone who needs therapy. The whole staff is so nice and always so friendly. Thanks Rock Run for all your help. Now I can do my exercises at home to keep up my health (no more neck or headache pain).

    I was having pain and tingling/numbness in my left arm. I had a lot of discomfort, which intensified with my sleep. After working with Josh for about six weeks, the pain is gone, tingling is minimal, my neck is more flexible, and I’m feeling great! My sleep is undisturbed. Thanks Rock Run for making this a safe place where I can come to get the help I needed. And Josh – you’re the best!
