Back pain can be an acute sudden onset, or chronic over a number of years. Both respond well to physiotherapy. Pilates has also been shown to bring significant long-term improvements in reducing the incidence of re-occurrence and managing chronic symptoms.
Although back pain can be severe and cause a lot of anxiety, it is often simple to treat especially if addressed early.
Sciatica is pain referring into one or both legs and can occur with or without accompanying back pain. It can also occur with pins and needles and numbness and a lack of power. You can have all or just one of these symptoms. Early treatment is key to successfully resolving the injury, which is caused by the nerve being compromised.
Your physiotherapist will be able to identify where the issue is with the nerve and treat it. If necessary your physiotherapist can also organise an MRI.
