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.

Patient Testimonials

We are committed to providing the best physical therapy experience with the highest quality of care for optimal results. See what real patients have to say about us!

Before coming to Physical Therapy for my neck I had problems doing things on the computer and even playing with grandkids. Driving was hard since I couldn’t look over my shoulder – to look in the back seat was impossible.

Now, I am having no problem looking to the right or left! My headaches that I was having daily are very infrequent now – I don’t remember when I had a bad one. Each time I came Jerrin would work on it to help me move my neck more and more.

Thanks so much!

Amazing experience at Rock Run PT. Before Physical Therapy, I had such limited range of motion due to lower back pain. I struggled to stand for more than 2-3 minutes and could not even put on my shoes. The pain impacted my day to day activities and quality of life. After PT, I have regained my range of motion and eliminated the pain to allow me to get back to full activity! I am highly impressed with the level of professionalism and care I received at Rock Run PT.

Initially I was very hesitant to come and receive Physical Therapy. I did not have an injury or surgery. I came here in effort to avoid surgery. My knee was in rough shape. I avoided my morning walks, standing and going down stairs. Today, I am ready to tackle these activities again!

The staff is wonderful! Everyone is always concerned about my comfort and well-being. They have provided all the tools I need to move forward and continue progressing. Jerrin thank you!!

Had pain in my back and leg. I had been to Rock Run before with a similar problem ad they were wonderful to work with, so I wanted to come back. They are all very caring and professional. They prepared a treatment plan and gave me exercises to do at home. I appreciate the great service and will recommend to others.

I came I with a left ankle problem and still swollen. I was very leery to even move it but staff was very supportive and educational. The exercises started off very basic and worked up always keeping at a level I could manage. The medical staff always knew just what I needed. Any way I am leaving with a stable ankle and confidence to function and I appreciate the staff who made that possible. I hope not to get injured again but should I this will be the place I come back to.

I was diagnosed with a very painful foot condition called metatarsalgia. I was desperate for some kind of pain relief and decided to try Physical Therapy for it. 12 visits later with doing laser therapy and exercises my foot feels so much better. I’m able to walk with very little discomfort. Jerrin was amazing and he just pulled out his knowledge on how to treat my foot. I will definitely come back and recommend Rock Run to everyone I know.

Rock Run in Syracuse was instrumental in my recovery after my shoulder surgery. The staff was awesome in what I needed, or was curious to try. Before surgery I had almost no strength or motion, and now it is about 90% better. After my surgery I couldn’t move my shoulder, and now I can go back to coaching my sons hockey team.

When I first started Physical Therapy, I had doubts that it would help with the pain that I had but I was surprised. There have been so many pain free days. I’m almost sad to stop. I would recommend this place to anyone. I appreciate the friendly atmosphere and especially the things Jerrin taught me – and his patience. This place ROCKS.

When I came in my back was so bad, I was unable to do most anything. Josh and his team have worked with me to help me literally get back on my feet. Their expertise in exercises and stretches helped immensely! The pool was remarkable! The team is outstanding!

I broke my elbow, but when it healed, I couldn’t extend my arm straight. After seven visits of PT, it is almost as straight as my other arm and much stronger. I can do the activities I used to with only minimal limitation or pain. It feels so much better! Thank you Brenda, Bailee and PT team.

I came to Rock Run Physical Therapy in 2016 for therapy on my right knee replacement and was very please with the care I received, so when it came time to have my left knee done – I came back. I have received the same quality of care as before and each person I have worked with has been professional, friendly, and caring. I recommend Rock Run highly!

When I first came in my shoulder had a very small amount of range of motion. Most movement with the shoulder created some severe pain. Since doing this therapy, increased my range of motion and just have minor pain with just a few exercises. Definitely happy with my experience.

I sustained a shoulder bursa tear and could not perform common movements to get dressed, or do simple household chores without pain. My range of motion improved significantly. The staff are so kind and therapists are fun and competent. Thank you all for improving my quality of life!

My experience at Rock Run was excellent. Everyone has a great attitude. Things were explained to me as to what we were working on and how it helped me. I felt very good about my workouts. I would definitely return for other rehab issues in the future.

I am so thrilled with my experience at Rock Run. After my injury I struggled to get the right care, and I’m so glad that I found you. Brenda, Bailey and JT have been AMAZING to work with. I know that without therapy I would still be struggling with pain, and I’m not sure if I would ever have been able to be doing as well as I am now. Thank You!

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!
