For those of you that are looking for a local physio, Altrincham is home to The Body Clinic. We have fully qualified physiotherapists who can help our patients with a common complaint; sciatica. Sciatica is a condition which causes pain or weakness, mainly in the back, but also the buttock, hamstring, calf or foot. Our clinic for physio, Altrincham, offers a range of different treatments to help our patients to rid themselves of the pain and discomfort of sciatica.
There are certain symptoms which are common to sciatica, such as pain, weakness or pins and needles down the back of the legs. Pain and weakness is often triggered by sitting, bending and lifting and the patient will often have a history of back pain.
At our clinic for physio in Altrincham, we will do a thorough assessment of the patient so ascertain whether or not they are, in fact, suffering from sciatica. A programme of physiotherapy treatment will then be devised for the patient; dependent upon their personal history and the symptoms which they are showing to be suffering from. Physio treatments may include manipulation, mobilization, body massage, soft tissue massage and also advice on how the patient can help relieve pain relating to their posture. For effective physio Altrincham is where to visit.
