Carteret, NJ -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/13/2013 -- Sciatica pain can be a debilitating and ongoing condition but Sciatica pain NJ patients can find relief with physical therapy treatments tailored to their needs.
Sciatic pain, also known as sciatica, is the inflammation of the sciatic nerve. The sciatic nerve runs from the spinal cord down the legs, and inflammation usually causes pain and tenderness through the leg.
Carteret Comprehensive Medical Care (CCMC) understands that combatting sciatica problems can be an ongoing battle. However, they also understand the steps needed to manage pain and find relief. Their patients are singing the praises of the benefits of physical therapy they have received at this medical facility. “I was having a lot of pain in my lower back, right hip and thigh. Since finishing my treatment with CCMC I have no more pain in these areas. The doctors and staff made my experience a lot easier by telling me what needs to be done and educating me on why it helps. The most important thing I learned is that if you have pain, get help,” patient David S. wrote in a testimonial.
While the most common treatment prescribed for sciatica is rest, which allows the inflammation of the nerve to calm down, exercise and physical therapy can also help treat and prevent sciatic pain. According to the CCMC website each physical therapy NJ treatment begins with a heating and/or stretching session. The session continues with a focus on physical exercises designed around the patient’s condition to strengthen the body. These exercises normally progress in difficulty and intensity over the course of many sessions.
