Physical Therapy for Sciatica in Utah

Roy, Syracuse, & Layton, Utah

Physical Therapy for Sciatica Treatment at Rock Run Physical Therapy

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.

Causes of Sciatica

  • Herniated lumbar intervertebral disk – If your vertebrae become 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 exit, can put enough pressure on your sciatic nerve to cause pain and numbness.
  • Intervertebral disk fluid – This naturally 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.
