Sciatica A + B

Sciatica occurs when there is pressure or damage to the sciatic nerve. This nerve starts in the lower spine and runs down the back of each leg. This nerve controls the muscles of the back of the knee and lower leg and provides sensation to the back of the thigh, part of the lower leg, and the sole of the foot.

Common causes of sciatica include:

  • Slipped Disk
  • Piriformis syndrome (a pain disorder involving the narrow muscle in the buttocks)
  • Pelvic injury or fracture
  • Tumors

Most of my sciatica clients have been found to have piriformis problems, coming from structural and postural imbalances. When sciatica or piriformis problems are left untreated, they can lead to pain in other areas of the body, causing the sufferer to reduce their activities.

By receiving NFR treatments, many if not all of my clients report increased range of motion, reduced spasticity, and reduced, or completely eliminated, pain.
