Sciatica Treatment in Pimpri Chinchwad

Physiotherapy can be very effective for relieving sciatica pain. Your physiotherapist can also design an exercise program to strengthen and improve the mobility of your back, leaving you less vulnerable to bouts of sciatica. One of the most common causes of sciatica is a disc herniation in the lumbar spine. When the herniated disc impinges or compresses a nerve root, sciatica can occur. 90% of patients with a lumbar disc herniation improve without a medical intervention like surgery within 3-6 months.

What is Sciatica?

Sciatica is a common form of leg and lower back pain in which the pain spreads along the path of the sciatic nerve, affecting generally one side of the body. The most common symptoms of this medical condition is the pain and numbness radiating down the knee. As a result, this pain can be unbearable at times and can be treated with proper medication in most of the cases. Although, people with severe Sciatica are advised for a surgery. Moreover, women are prone to Sciatica more as compared to men.

Signs and Symptoms of Sciatica

  1. Pain that starts in your lower back or your buttock and travels down the back of the leg.
  2. Pain can be an ache or a sharp burning sensation.
  3. Pain can worsen with coughing, or sneezing this can indicate lumbar disc pathology or spinal hypermobility.
  4. Some patients feel numbness or tingling or ankle muscle weakness on the affected side.
  5. Severe symptoms include trouble walking due to pain.

Causes of Sciatica

  1. Sciatica happens when the sciatic nerve becomes compressed or inflamed.
  2. There are discs between the bones of your spine (vertebrae) that act as shock absorbers. Sometimes they can bulge or herniate creating a local inflammatory response and pressure on the nerve. This is the most common cause of sciatica.
  3. Bony changes called “bone spurs” can press on nearby nerves in a spine that suffers from arthritis.


  • Sciatica is diagnosed based on the examination findings by your physician or physiotherapist. Imaging isn’t required in most cases. If the patient has a past medical history of disabling symptoms, osteoporosis, steroid use, unexplained fever/weight loss, tumour history, trauma and/or IV drug use imaging may be necessary.

    If a patient does not have an improvement in symptoms from rest, physical therapy and medication after 3 months then an MRI may be recommended to evaluate their candidacy for surgery.
