Anyone can get sciatica but the most common causes of it are a bulging disc or spinal stenosis which is where your spinal canal begins to narrow. A previous back injury can also cause sciatic pain.
At Life Effect, we’ll be with you every step of the way to ensure that you’re pain-free and not at risk of suffering with sciatica again. You can also take the following steps to reduce the likelihood of it coming back: stay active, be careful lifting heavy objects, good posture, maintain a healthy weight and not smoke.
Your specific circumstances and the results from your consultation and assessment will determine whether x-rays will be necessary. If you have any concerns at all, feel free to raise these at your consultation.
