Conditions Treated at Galt Physiotherapy & Acupuncture
At Galt Physiotherapy & Acupuncture, we provide comprehensive treatments tailored to a variety of health concerns, with a particular emphasis on conditions such as sciatica pain.
Understanding Sciatica Pain
Sciatica is characterized by nerve pain stemming from an injury or irritation to the sciatic nerve. Often, the symptoms manifest as discomfort in the lower back, buttocks, and legs, leading to sensations like tingling or numbness radiating downwards. This condition is frequently caused by issues like herniated discs or bone overgrowths, which exert pressure on part of the nerve. This in turn can cause inflammation and pain, often accompanied by numbness in the affected leg.

In the holistic approach of Galt Physiotherapy & Acupuncture:
Tailored exercises and manual techniques can help relieve sciatica pain by strengthening the back and improving posture, thus reducing pressure on the sciatic nerve. This therapy not only alleviates current pain but can also help prevent future episodes.
