What is Sciatica?

 

Sciatica is described as the pain felt along the sciatic nerve, which runs from the lower spine down to the leg and through the buttock. The sciatic nerve is the longest nerve in the human body originating from the lumbar or the lower back region from the L4, L5, and S1 vertebrae.

 

Usually misdiagnosed, Sciatica is slow or non-responsive to therapy. Leg pain may have multiple reasons. It i sometimes may be due to leg injury or it might be a pain emanating from the lower spine and being carried forward in the leg. It is therefore very important to have the right diagnosis to understand the right cause of leg pain and to treat it. The sciatic nerve which travels within one’s leg from the spine, called sciatic nerve, may cause

Causes  

 

An accident that disturbs or causes pinching of the sciatic nerve can also result in leg pain and it usually impacts those between the 30 to 50 age groups. It might occur as a result of the effects of overall wear and tear, and any abrupt pressure on the discs that cushion the vertebrae of the lower (lumbar) spine.

 

While there are many causes of sciatica, the most frequent are:

 

  • lumbar bulging disc
  • Spine degeneration
  • Facet joint injuries
  • piriformis syndrome
  • spinal stenosis
  • spondylolisthesis
  • sacroiliac dysfunction

 

30 to 50 years old are the most likely to get impacted by sciatica. It might occur as a result of effects of overall backbone wear and tear (spondylosis) or even a traumatic injury that exerts pressure on the spinal disks e.g. lifting, scratching or bending.

 

Which exactly are the Symptoms of Sciatica?

 

Sciatica causes pain that spreads throughout the buttock, calf, leg and, sometimes, the foot and starts in the lower back. The pain may vary between sharp pains and burning sensations or aching.

 

Sciatica can result in numbness in the skin, tingling of nerves or muscle weakness. It is essential to obtain medical care in these types of scenarios as long-term nerve-wracking may permanently damage the nerve and its particular purpose. In such circumstances, the symptoms may become permanent.

 

A patient may experience at least one or a few of the following symptoms due to Sciatica

 

  • Pain in the leg or the back that is worse when sitting
  • Burning or tingling in the leg
  • Weakness, numbness or difficulty
  • Constant pain on one side
  • A shooting pain which makes it tough to stand up.

As sciatica is due to the strain on the sciatic nerve, it makes sense that therapy involves removing this strain as any long term untreated pain experienced as a result may also end up damaging the nerve if not treated timely.  Physical therapy for sciatica intends to accomplish this by decreasing nerve pressure due to badly moving spinal joints in addition to relieving muscle strain from the lower spine, buttock, and leg.

 

This is achieved with a combination of the following methods:

 

  • Spinal mobilizations
  • Stretching joints muscles, ligaments, and tendons
  • Massage therapy and trigger point treatment
  • Ultrasound and stimulation apparatus usage to reduce irritation and stress of the nerve
  • Along with this, the patient will be provided a string of stretching exercises to be done at home and requested to apply heat and ice to assist aid healing.

Physical Therapy for Sciatica

 

Physiotherapy for sciatica comprises of exercises that are a mixture of strengthening, stretching, and aerobic conditioning that are fundamental elements of just about any sciatica treatment program.

 

When patients take part in a regular schedule of mild exercises, they could recover faster from sciatica pain and, are not as likely to have future episodes of pain.

 

  • General Exercises for Sciatica –Sciatica exercises concentrate on three areas: strengthening, stretching, and aerobic conditioning.

 

  • Strengthening exercises – Exercises that will help strengthen the muscles along with the spinal column, ligaments, and tendons. Most of the back exercises concentrate not just on the lower spine, but also on the abdominal (stomach) muscles and gluteus (buttock) and hip muscles). Strong core muscles may offer pain relief since they support the spine, keeping it in alignment and relieving moves that stretch or twist the backbone thereby reducing the prospects of injury or harm.

 

  • Stretching exercises – Stretching is suggested to alleviate pain. Stretches for sciatica are specially designed to target cells causing discomfort when they are rigid and tight. Hamstring stretching is a significant part of a sciatica exercise regime. Most individuals don’t stretch those muscles, which stretch from the pelvis to the knee at the back of the thigh, in their everyday pursuits.

 

  • Another stretch that is frequently valuable in relieving sciatica is the Bird Dog movement – After getting on their hands and knees, people stretch one arm and the opposite leg. The leg and arm extensions are alternated. A more advanced version of the exercise is your Plank Bird Dog move, where the extensions are finished when the individual is at the plank position in their palms and feet.

 

  • Aerobic conditioning exercise – Some type of coronary artery exercise, like swimming, walking, or swimming treatment is generally a part of recovery, as aerobic action encourages the flow of fluids and nourishment to help make a greater recovery environment. Aerobic conditioning also has the exceptional advantage of releasing endorphins, the body’s natural pain killers, which will help decrease sciatic pain.

 

What Does a Physical Therapist Do for sciatica physiotherapy treatment?

 

Physiotherapy for sciatica could consist of McKenzie-based mechanical analysis and treatment, muscle energy methods, mobilizations, spinal stabilization, and core strengthening exercises, nerve slides/glides, or grip method. People will respond better as the method of treatment will be customized suitably for everyone. Some individuals with sciatica feel better with exercises of a backward bending posture, whereas others may feel better bending forwards. Sometimes working out at a neutral spine posture is essential.

 

Occasionally we have patients that respond best to shifting the hips sideways. The ideal sciatica physiotherapy treatment for somebody varies significantly from person to person and is dependent on the numerous reasons’ sciatica could be present. Each patient is unique and the reason for the pain is varying and hence everyone’s needs should be addressed separately by physiotherapy for sciatica pain.

Our physiotherapists are trained and have the skill set that is necessary to manage or to cure Sciatica pain, even if it is severe or chronic. Once there is a thorough consultation and patient assessment, they will prescribe physiotherapy for sciatica relief program which will be customized basis patient complaint and condition. With physiotherapy and timely intervention, pain from Sciatica can be managed successfully.

How We Made A Difference

  • review rating 1  Worst experience ever! Have hired a caregiver and a nurse. The nurse arrives late repeatedly inspite of being told about how critical medication timings are, falls asleep during day duty, is clueless about timings and medications inspite of us having guided them and has no sound medical knowledge whatsoever. She insisted that a fever of 99.7 is normal and even tried feeding the patient through riles tube with the patient lieing down inspite of there being a recliner arrangement. Neither the nurse or the attendant knew the correct way of lifting a patient from the bed, it was all ignorant tug and pull. Any complaints made to the organisation made no difference as they need more than a day to arrange for a replacement and one needs to deal with the same incompetent staff for another day or risk having no caregiver coming over (as bluntly informed by the call center) at all. Furtheron, the same performance continued the next day. In fact, in the absence of the family members it was observed through a baby monitor that the attendant and the nurse were sitting and chatting away while the patient was trying to sleep and literally PASSING FOOD OVER TO EACH OTHER OVER THE PATIENT! If this wasnt bad enough, the attendant developed a cough and a fever and when a call was made to care 24 asking them to send a replacement on the next day at least as the patient has low immunity, the organisation again gave a choice, we could have the same attendant and risk the patient getting sick, or have no attendant for the next day as they didn't have anyone available. Do not fall for the sales pitch of the executives over the phone as their premium prices and promises of exceptionally well trained staff is nothing but marketing mumbo jumbo. The professionalism and training of the staff that comes to your door is as garbage as the service of the organisation. More importantly, do not trust this organisation with the health and well being of your loved ones as no one in the entire heirarchy of care 24 really 'cares'. You would be better off hiring someone from a local agency. Have had much better experiences with randomly contacted nurses and attendants through justdial. Even though they live far, they reach on time The local organisations are also promptly able to provide replacements if need be. P.S. The 1000 or so rupees registration charge they take from you initially, is essentially a financial clickbait as its money they've made off you after they have stressed you out, contributed to deterioration of the patient and compelled you to suspend their services.

  • review rating 1  Unqualified office staff, when you call to clarify something. Many times they don't understand the question. They are not trained well. The customer care staff needs an upgraded system, where notes are fed into the system. So you don't need someone else calling up and giving you the same info. The caretaker is not trained well. If they are looking after an elderly person, they should know that they have to be in the best of health to look after my mother. She ended not making a meal for my mother and my neighbour had to provide it. If the caretaker is not well she should have asked for a replacement asap and not waited. It is shocking, we have paid a huge amount of money for this service and I am absolutely unhappy. Please do not call for caretaker's from Care24. As long as they are getting their money. They care a damn!!! Worst service providers.

  • review rating 1  Worst!!! I am paying for professional services and the attendant is not professional. The level of disappointment is i have to terminate services on Day 1 itself. And still I am being told to pay for 1 day. Please assess the attendant before going for services from care24

  • review rating 1  We had a ridiculously pathetic experience with them. Took an attendant service, a 10 day offer (rs 600 instead of their regular fee of rs 800), for my mother who had undergone an knee replacement surgery. In six days, 4 different attendants were assigned for no fault of ours. We had terrible experience going through the back-end team trying to explain the importance of sending only one attendant and not a different one every new day. The last person assigned wanted to leave by 5pm even though the timings were from 8am to 8pm. With this many other terrible instances in these 6 days, we had no option but to cancel the services. The back-end team were utterly useless in understanding the importance of having only one person assigned. They kept insisting that we pay for 800rs per day for 6 day and offer of rs 600 per day would be invalid. The management should look into this scam and take immediate action on the team. Note: Even though we wanted the services, we were forced to abandon it with no fault of ours. The back-end team has absolute disregard for the grievances of the client.
