What is sciatica?

Sciatica refers to pain that radiates along the path of the sciatica nerve, which branches from your lower back through your hips and buttocks and down each leg. Sciatica causes are most commonly when the sciatica nerve is pinched by usually a herniated disk in your spine or by a bone overgrowth (bone spur) on your vertebrae or sometimes you can develop sciatica in pregnancy.

What are sciatica symptoms?

Sciatica symptoms are: mild to severe pain in lower back with pain in buttock and pain back of leg typically on one side of the body which worsens on minor movement and on coughing and sneezing; numbness, weakness and pins and needles feeling in your lower back, buttock, legs and feet.

Client Testimonials

Having been dogged with injury I decided to have a full prehab/FMS screen with Colette at Imokilly Physiotherapy and Sports Injury Clinic. My starting score was 12/21 which placed me in a high risk injury bracket but by doing my corrective exercises, I not only played through the whole season un-injured but I also got my score up to 17/21 by the end.

I had spent a significant amount of money elsewhere on unwearable orthotics, before coming to Imokilly Physiotherapy Clinic. The orthotics I got here are by far the most comfortable to wear, and I wouldn't put a pair of shoes on without them!

Having had a long long history of back-pain which was then managed surgically with a dynamic fusion I was nervous about commencing any exercise. My neurosurgeon recommended that I attend a physiotherapist-led clinical Pilates class and I was lucky to find Sarah. Her entire approach is aimed at individualised rehabilitation, namely the individual assessment, tailored exercise programmes, small classes and follow-up emails. The standard of Pilates service is far superior to a fitness-based drop in class, and hence ideal for those with injuries.

Chronic Achilles tendinopathy was limiting my ability to progress my marathon training and I knew that I had to tackle it properly to allow it to heal. Although it was frustrating to step back from training, I am now running painfree and hoping for a marathon PB
