Sciatica pain is a common condition that affects millions of people worldwide. It is caused by the compression or irritation of the sciatic nerve, which is the longest nerve in the human body. Physical therapy is a common treatment for sciatica pain, and Breaking Through uses a comprehensive approach called The One80 System® that offers several benefits compared to traditional therapy.

The One80 System® is a patented evaluation and treatment process used by medical professionals to get to the root cause of orthopedic injury and discomfort. By assessing and treating the physiological phenomenon called neuromuscular inhibition, our physical therapy sessions quickly and effectively eliminate symptoms like pain, swelling, weakness and loss of motion. Once neuromuscular dysfunction is found, they can easily re-establish normal nerve/muscle communication. This is what decreases and eliminates the issues that cause pain and injury, and also leads to return to full functional ability.

Physical Therapy for Sciatica Pain

Unlike other physical therapy, massage or chiropractic care, at Breaking Through we assess the entire body during each session to ensure the root problem is discovered. So not only will we assess movement and muscular control of your back and pelvis, but we will also assess above and below your pelvis to develop a comprehensive evaluation. 

Sciatica Pain Exercises

Exercise is an important component at Breaking Through and is individualized to the individual needs of each patient. Our exercise program focuses on improving and restoring a full range of motion. These exercises help to improve strength, flexibility, and mobility, which can help to alleviate the pressure on the sciatic nerve that causes the radiating pain referred to as sciatica. Patients suffering from sciatica pain receive customized sciatica pain exercises tailored to their unique case. Where other health professionals tend to treat all complaints of sciatica the same, we get to our patient's unique root cause and treat each sciatica pain case with the individualized treatment and sciatica pain exercises to be the most effective.

Patient Education

Patient education is a crucial component at Breaking Through, and it can be tailored to the individual needs of each patient. Patients who understand the underlying causes of their sciatica, or pain traveling along the sciatic nerve, are better equipped to manage their symptoms and prevent future episodes.  Some of the topics that may be covered in patient education sessions include understanding the cause of your sciatic pain (sciatica), proper warm-ups for activity, body mechanics, and understanding what you will need to participate in the activities you have been limited from doing.
