Have you ever experienced a sharp, sudden burning pain in the back of your leg? Chances are you have had ‘Sciatica’ which is a term used to describe a nerve pain in the leg that is caused by irritation or compression of the Sciatic nerve.
The Sciatic nerve is the largest nerve in the human body and is formed by the union of five nerve roots from the lower spine. It passes deep in the buttock and down the back of the thigh all the way to the heel and sole of the foot. The Sciatic nerve is pivotal when connecting the spinal cord with the skin, muscles of the thigh, leg, and foot.

"After struggling with Sciatica for 7 weeks, I tried Bodyworks. The professionalism, knowledge, advice and support was tenfold to previous treatment. After 1 week of following Katrina's advice I was off painkillers. After 3 sessions over a 4-5 week period my sciatica was vastly improved to the point where I nearly didn't notice it anymore. Getting the right advice and exercises made a huge difference. I'd recommend Bodyworks to anyone"
"I joined a Pilates group with Katrina in July, mainly due to sciatica and joint problems and also to help tone up after losing weight. The instructors are excellent at ensuring you are in the correct position, that you work your resistance up gradually and varies the sessions so they don't get repetitive. My sciatica is so much better now, and I really enjoy these weekly sessions"
"Caroline diagnosed my pain as not a hip problem but a spinal one as I thought. She urged me to see a spinal surgeon, she was correct! I have subsequently had surgery with nuts and bolts in L2 L3 and L4 and am now pain free and on my way to getting my life back. I can’t thank her enough"
“It is after a visit to Bodyworks Physio Clinic with severe nerve pain that prompts me to write. From the moment I spoke to the receptionist I was reassured and a cancellation appointment found for me - Katrina and Claire couldn't have been kinder, given me more time or been more thorough. I also had acupuncture. All in all a very friendly and professional service”
