Sciatica - Can Treatment Help?

Osteopathy may be useful in relieving the symptoms of sciatica

Symptoms of sciatica may include the following:

  • pain in the buttock or down the leg
  • numbness
  • muscular weakness
  • pins and needles or tingling
  • difficulty moving or controlling the leg.

Osteopaths will examine the body to find the true underlying cause of the sciatica. Osteopaths treat the related joints, muscles, ligaments or tendons to reduce the pressure on the sciatic nerve.
