HOW TO REDUCE SCIATICA PAIN AND STIFFNESS—WITHOUT TAKING PAINKILLERS, WITHOUT RISKING SURGERY AND WITHOUT SACRIFICING THE ACTIVITIES YOU LOVE DOING!
If you have sciatica, lower back pain, stiffness, or aches, it's very tempting to think that it will go away on its own. You might attribute it to having just "slept funny," or convince yourself that this is just normal again pain.
There's no glaring reason why it happened—but it simply won't go away!
If that's happening to you, you are not alone: we hear a similar story all the time. In fact, low back pain and sciatica are THE most common problems that we see at Skyline Physical Therapy in our Wyckoff, NJ Clinic.
And when it comes to living with back pain or sciatica, everybody we see wants to know:
“Why is This Happening to Me?”
“Why is my pain getting worse when it's already been over 6 months?"
Most people truly hope that they will wake up one morning and their sciatica pain will magically disappear as if it never happened. But that rarely happens, and the longer you wait, the worse the problem can become.
Does That Sound Like You?—Another scenario we see all the time is people whose doctor tells them to rest, "try these pills," and "see how it goes." But this most commonly fails the patient, and four weeks later, they end up going back to the doctor seeking different answers.
How About This?—You think that your sciatica pain was caused by lifting the wrong way or sleeping in an awkward position—but it was ACTUALLY caused a lifetime of poor posture, causing disc, joint, nerve and muscle dysfunction. Now that your posture is dysfunctional, you aren't able to support your body properly during lifting activities and as a result, you compound the issue with more injury! Now, do you want your doctor treating the effects (AKA pain), or do you want to address the root CAUSE of your problem so you can PREVENT it from happening over and over again?
IF YOU'RE CURRENTLY LIVING WITH SCIATICA, HERE ARE SIX MORE REASONS WHY IT COULD BE LASTING LONGER THAN IT SHOULD:
You thought it would go away on its own so you did nothing about it
You went to the doctor and were prescribed painkillers and rest. The pills temporarily eased the pain, and once they wore off... sciatica struck again
A friend or family member told you that sciatica pain is normal with getting older so you just accepted it
You tried healthcare professionals like physical therapists and chiropractors in the past, but nothing they said or did seemed to help
You tried exercises you found on the internet but they didn't seem to help!
You decided to get massaged, and while it felt great at the time, it didn't do anything to fix the problem long-term
If any of these have happened to you - we would love to help you by inviting you to book a call to talk with Dr. Joseph Damiani of our Wyckoff, NJ Clinic to find out what can be done to help you.
If you’ve tried any of these things already, that is a GOOD THING because when you know what doesn’t work - you're a few steps closer to finding the thing that does!
Click the link below to book a call with us if you would like to get some advice given to you for FREE over the phone. The phone consultation is complimentary and there is no obligation to book any appointments with us after the call is over. Our goal is to help you make the right decision about what to do next for the best.
What Other People Who WERE Suffering From Back Pain & Sciatica Pain Are Saying About Skyline Physical Therapy...
MATT, Pearl River
My pain was so bad that I couldn’t touch my toes. My wife actually had to put my socks on for me! I was devastated because I had trained for months and I thought I wasn’t going to be able to compete like this. I called Joe and he saw me immediately. After 30 minutes of Joe working on me, I was able to painlessly touch my toes... I followed the series of stretches and movements he prescribed and I felt great the day of the competition. I was able to wrestle 4 matches the day after not being able to put my own socks on— and I took 1st.
I was hesitant to come in for therapy because I’ve had mediocre experiences with physical therapists and chiropractors in the past. As a result, I regretfully waited about 6 months before I sought help for the pain in my lower back and right leg. A family member had recommended Skyline so I decided to give it a shot. I am extremely happy with my decision. The leg pain went away in about two weeks and the back pain after 4 weeks. I am finally able to work out again and go for long walks, and have not had the pain return since I highly recommend!
I never thought I could fix my sciatica from across a computer screen, but it really worked. Setting up the call was easy. Joe showed me a treatment that was simple to understand and do on my own. I felt leg and back pain relief quickly and I’m still practicing the exercises he told me to do. The best part is I didn’t have to leave my house.
"WHAT CAN I DO TO GET RID OF MY SCIATICA PAIN QUICKLY?"
Well, here are 4 things you can do:
Number One, you need to MAKE A DECISION about getting help. So many people procrastinate for too long, thinking that sciatica pain will go away with time, but then six months later they're still putting up with it!
Next, do the RIGHT exercises! One of the best things to help you ease your sciatica pain is to do a proper exercise progression—the right exercises prescribed by a physical therapist can help reduce pain and allow you to move freely again, AND with continued completion of the exercises, you can really get your life back.
Avoid prolonged sitting! Have you ever tried to get up from the couch after watching TV for a while? Does your back feel painful and tight? That's because resting in one position for long periods of time can cause your spine to conform to that position and increases stiffness. Utilizing the proper postural strategies and exercises can go a long way for better posture. Combined with hands-on treatment, it can get you active and healthy as quickly as possible.
Get real, "Hands-On" physical therapy! Physical therapy, especially manual physical therapy, is one of the most effective ways to relieve sciatica pain safely. At Skyline Physical Therapy, it's one of our specialties! If your sciatica pain is affecting your job, threatening your ability to keep active, destroying your independence, or getting in the way of spending quality time with family and friends, physical therapy can help get you back to the active life you deserve!
