Sciatica refers to the pain, inflammation, and neurological sensations that are linked to the sciatic nerve. People suffering from sciatica feel pain radiating downwards in the back of their legs. The intensity of pain varies from a dull ache to shooting pain that can paralyze you for a moment. Usually, severe cases of sciatica can be treated with surgical intervention, but osteopathy is also a suitable option.

Osteopathic Diagnosis of Sciatica
Osteopathy Dubai is a less invasive and holistic approach to treat sciatica. An osteopath takes your detailed medical history, analyzes your symptoms, and examines you physically to diagnose the cause of sciatica. They take into account your previous x-rays, tests, and scans to see if a previous injury has impacted the mechanics of the spine, pelvis, and hips.
During a careful examination, osteopaths check how joints and muscles in the spine are working and locate the area of tension. It helps them to identify the inflamed joints or muscles and the type of imbalance in the spine. An osteopath will also analyze other regions of your body to see how they contribute to spinal dysfunction.
Our osteopaths aim to reduce the pain, improve your mobility and help you get back to normal life.
