How We Treat Low Back Pain and Sciatica


Repeated Motion

For conditions like nerve irritation due to disk bulges or spinal stenosis, a repeated movement program can help.

Stabilization Exercises

These target deep abdominal and spinal muscles. By retraining these muscles, they help stabilize the spine and alleviate pain caused by incorrect muscle engagement.


Strengthening and Stretching

 To target weak core postural muscles and build strength around the trunk, pelvis and hip musculature to decrease risk of injury. Also aims to improve flexibility, reducing the risk of stiffness and tightness causing nerve irritation and poor posture.


For stiffness in the spine, therapists may perform mobilization or manipulation techniques to improve motion and decrease pain linked to the leg.
