What is Sciatica & Can it be treated by Fully Fit Therapy

Sciatica is a pain going from the buttocks, sometimes down to the foot. Other times it can just go to the knee.

The pain can be sharp, numb, pins and needles. It is rarely in both legs and 
It can be worsened with sitting, standing up, bending forward.

Heat on the area can help, as well as short walks to alleviate some symptoms, before your Treatment/ Massage session by Rob.

Many things can cause sciatica, below will be the ones that can be treated by Rob:
Muscle Spasm
Sacroiliac joint dysfunction
Tight glutes/piriformis
Lumbar disk issues

The initial assessment will rule in or out whether Rob can help with your sciatica. Obviously if you are unable to be helped you will be refunded the cost of the treatment 


1. Massage can help relax the muscles in the glutes and hamstrings, this can open a window to then do further treatments such as mobilisations or more intense exercises to the pain from sciatica.

2. Mobilisations can also help if a specific vertebrae in your spine is causing extra pain relating to your sciatica.

3. As already mentioned, exercises can also help with posture and tightness to stop the Sciatica. There will be given to help in between follow up sessions
