This page is perfect for you if:

  • You’re worried that you have the symptoms of “sciatica” and want to know how it can be fixed.
  • You have pain that changes when you sit or stand.
  • You feel like you can’t stand up straight or walk very well because of your sciatica.
  • You have shooting pain into your hip or leg.
  • Things you have tried have resulted in temporary relief. 
  • You want to avoid making the 3 biggest mistakes people make when deciding how to fix sciatica.
  • You want to get rid of sciatica, so you can sleep better, have more energy, and be more active without pain.

How do I know if I have Sciatica? 

You’ll know if you have sciatica based a combination of the following symptoms: 

  • Lower back pain
  • Pain in the buttock or leg that is worse when sitting or standing
  • Pins and needles in your leg
  • Constant pain in your buttock
  • Numbness, or difficulty moving the leg or foot. 

If you answered yes to having one or more of those symptoms, chances are you have sciatica.

How do I fix my sciatica?

There is an overwhelming amount of information about how to fix sciatica. The question you need to have answered is “What type of sciatica do I have?” 

A lot of people get the diagnosis of sciatica and immediately hit the internet. Take one of our clients for instance, we’ll call her Katie. When Katie’s sciatica happened the first time, she found herself searching for exercises on youtube that might help with sciatica. She tried them and some helped a little bit, but some seemed to aggravate the issue. She was unsure if it was one of those “no pain – no gain” situations so she kept at it and the next day her pain was worse. She then went to her doctor and got a prescription for some medication. She took it faithfully and her pain went away over the next couple of days…but then it came back! 

This was frustrating to Katie because at first it just affected her walking. Pretty soon she wasn’t able to play with her kids or go walking or hiking with her friends. She found that during conversations her mind was preoccupied with her pain, and she was less engaged. It was taking over her life. 

She began asking her friends and family members who sent her to a massage therapist and a chiropractor. She was hopeful each time, but disappointed when her relief was short lived. Eventually she started wondering if she needed injections or surgery to resolve the issue, but was reluctant to go down that path.

If Katie’s story sounded even a bit familiar, we get it. Let’s take a look at the 3 biggest mistakes Katie made (none of which are her fault!). 

Mistake #1: Cookie Cutter Treatments 

There are several different types of sciatica. It can be caused by muscle tightness, muscle weakness, a stuck joint, or the way you move. By searching for “exercises” used to fix sciatica you’re using a SHOTGUN APPROACH. Like throwing spaghetti at a wall and seeing what sticks. If you get lucky you may get it right, but chances are the relief will be short lived, or you’ll make it worse! 

Mistake #2: Being Satisfied With Symptom Management

SYMPTOM MANAGEMENT is what happens when you focus on fixing the pain, and not on the ROOT CAUSE of the pain. If you’re looking for quick fix short term solutions from the pain, there are many options out there (like medication!) How do you know if what you’re getting is a quick fix? 

Chances are that something specific caused you to start looking for a solution. But it’s not your pain. People tolerate pain in hopes that it will go away. However, when the pain starts to interfere with things they need or want to do, you start to worry about keeping up with your friends, or kids, or the thought of needing surgery. Take Katie for example. Pain is just your SYMPTOM, and if you just focus on treating that, the pain will come back!

So the #1 question you need to ask yourself to avoid big mistake #3 is:

“What is the ultimate outcome I want out of fixing my sciatica?”

If you don’t have a definite goal in mind, it’s like getting in the car without knowing your destination. How will you know when you get there, and how will anyone be able to guide you? 

Mistake #3: Not Having An Outcome In Mind 

Once we met Katie, we were able to help her determine her ULTIMATE OUTCOME. It was to get back to playing with her kids, hiking with her friends, and having conversations without thinking about how much pain she was in. With the ultimate outcome in mind, we were able to design a plan specific to Katie and her objectives, and two months later she achieved them all! 

If you have a specific outcome in mind it helps you select the right form of treatment. If your outcome involves you using your body for movement, it’s likely that you should choose a doctor who best understands movement. If you want a solution to your specific problem or type of sciatica, based on your needs, goals, and values then you need an expert that will take more than 10-20 minutes to LISTEN to your story and figure out what your concerns are, and what your ultimate outcome is. That’s exactly what we do at The Doctors of Physical Therapy!

So ask yourself: 

“What is the ultimate outcome I want out of fixing my sciatica?” 

For Katie, it was being able to get out of bed without stiffness in the morning. She wanted to be able to keep up with her kids, and feel like she could be 100% for her family, and at work. She wanted to be able to travel, and walk around exploring without worrying that she would need a place to sit down.
