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.

I was pleased with the care at Rock Run. They were courteous, kind, and very professional. They pushed me hard so as to strengthen my knee, and help me get into a good place by the end of my treatments

— Terry E., Posted April 20, 2020

This was my very first injury in my life. As scary and unsure about how things can turn out, it was nice to have Brenda and her team be so kind and informative. I was able to schedule around work and get in when needed. I would have liked more goal and advancements in treatments from day to day, but other than that itís been a great time!

After having a third shoulder surgery, I was apprehensive of physical therapy and the results I hoped to achieve. My treatment was better than expected and Iím well on my way to a full recovery. The Rock Run team is very knowledgeable and respectful. I would come back anytime

Before I came here I had trouble with a shoulder pain on my right side which made a wing problem. After a few weeks of therapy and on exercise program it started to go away and now feeling much better than I have in 5 months. I am grateful for the specialists that have helped me. Great people

I had a great experience with Rock Run Physical Therapy. Professional, knowledgeable and friendly staff. They took the time to get to know me and I felt like I was always in good hands. The physical therapists helped me become more informed with my shoulder issues, and helped me in making decisions for further treatment.

— Randy J., Posted April 20, 2020

Great visit Ė Consistent pain that was present when I first came here is now gone. Hopefully with the exercises I have been given for home, the pain will not return.

— Randal G., Posted April 20, 2020

Fantastic. I started out slow, and over time got stronger and more endurance. Rock Run is super! Three members of my family have been here for treatment and all have liked the experience.
