Symptoms that may indicate you need back pain and sciatica treatment

You may not know exactly how to tell if you need back pain and sciatica treatment. Our team at Border Therapy Services is here to help you figure it out. We know that the sciatic nerve is one of the longest and largest nerves in your body. It runs from your lower back and branches into both your legs. We’re also aware that there are many issues that may cause you to develop sciatica. You may have a herniated disc that’s rubbing on your sciatic nerve, or you might have narrowing in your spinal canal known as lumbar spinal stenosis. Other back conditions that may lead to sciatica include degenerative disc disease and spondylolisthesis. 

No matter what’s causing your sciatica and the resulting back pain, you may have noticed indications that you have this condition. What you may not have known is they are being caused by sciatica. Some of the symptoms of sciatica you may have noticed include: 

  • Lower back pain that radiates down your legs
  • Numbness in your legs or feet
  • Continuous pain on one side of your buttocks
  • Trouble sitting down or standing up

Our team wants to give you the help you need to find relief from your sciatica symptoms. We can help you by creating a multi-faceted therapy plan that focuses on relieving your pain, as well as strengthening your core muscles to help reduce the risk of future sciatica pain. We even offer free initial screenings to help you get your treatment going.
