Sciatica Treatment with Winback

Definition of Sciatica

Sciatica (or lumbosciatica, the common name for sciatic neuralgia) is pain along spinal nerves S1 or L5 that occurs at the spine (lumbar rachis) or in the immediate vicinity. It must be distinguished from the sciatic nerve, sometimes called the “sciatic” for short, which arises where several nerve roots join (including L5 and S1). An injury to the latter causes sciatica. It is a common ailment: it affects 5-10% of patients with back pain. Age, stress, and work involving back movements all increase the risk of sciatica.
Sciatica pains are typically intermittent, only on one side of the body (unilateral), radiating from the lumbar rachis down to the toes, sometimes increased during coughing or defecation, and calmed by resting while lying down or standing. They can be triggered by sitting (especially in a car).
They are sometimes accompanied by symptoms such as a tingling sensation in the leg or toes, a painful perception from some stimuli of a normally non-painful origin, or loss of feeling in part of the leg. Loss of the Achilles reflex is another indicator of sciatica (only in the case of S1 sciatica). It may be an extremely painful condition in the case of possible blockage of lumbar rachis called lumbago.

Winback’s interest in Sciatica Treatment

Winback therapy improves the revascularization of the nervous tissue and drains the post-trauma interstitial edema responsible for nerve function disturbances. Pain relief can be felt from the first session by the biological action targeted on the affected nerve. The anti-inflammatory vascular effect perpetuates the results obtained after a Winback manual therapy session.

The therapist follows a clinical reasoning based on his or her evaluation, postural and functional osteo-arthritis. He or she relies on neurodynamic tests to determine the cause of painful symptoms (hernia, joint blockage, pyriform contracture, distal inflammation, etc.).

Thanks to Winback the therapist can work on all the affected structures in the same session: myofascial, osteo-arthritis and neurological. In fact, during the session, he or she can practice all the manual techniques suited to his or her expertise: including inhibitory, myotensive, fasciatherapy, Trigger points, and lumbar mobilization techniques.Above all, the Winback therapeutic approach is a comprehensive and multi-segmented function.

If the pain has been ongoing for more than 4-6 weeks, the consultation of a physiotherapist equipped with Winback technology is recommended for efficient recovery. Various exercises and stretching will be done to correct posture, strengthen the back muscles, and improve flexibility. For full effectiveness, these exercises should be practiced on a regular basis. 2 to 3 Winback therapy sessions will effectively relieve your pain while scrambling nerve messages. Massages performed during the sessions are usually at the surface, slow, and regular exercises that relax the painful area.
