How does sciatica occur?

Sciatica is an inflammation of the sciatic nerve (the longest nerve in the human body) that occurs as a result of compression of the nerve itself. Sciatica pain usually spreads from the lumbar spine to the gluteal musculature, along the back of the thigh and lower leg, and towards the foot. Also very common is tingling in the legs. 

Sciatica can occur for several reasons and some of the most common are:

  • disc protrusion (disc herniation)
  • bone irregularities (osteophytes, spondylolisthesis)
  • narrowing of the spinal canal (spinal stenosis)
  • nerve compression with hypertonic muscle (piriformis syndrome “ "false sciatica")
Diskus hernija

Symptoms and diagnosis of sciatica


  • moderate to severe lumbar pain
  • pain in the gluteal area and along the affected leg
  • pain that gets worse with movement
  • tingling in the legs
  • weakness in the legs
  • tingling in the feet and toes
  • inability to control urine and stool



  • medical history - to determine whether there is an old injury or deficit in the lumbar spine area 
  • X-ray - is used to examine potential vertebral fractures, tumors, and bone irregularities
  • MRI or CT (main diagnostics) - are used for the examination of soft tissues, that is, to check for the existence of nerve compression, disc herniation, or any other degenerative changes
  • EMNG - a diagnostic procedure in which the conduction of the sciatic nerve is tested
  • Special Orthopedic tests - are a series of tests that can determine the existence of sciatica symptomatology

Physical therapy and rehabilitation

Goals of physical therapy in sciatica:

  • reduce / eliminate pain in the spine and along the legs
  • reduce / eliminate tingling in the legs
  • reduce / eliminate tingling in the feet and toes 
  • release of the lumbar muscles
  • increase the mobility of the lumbar spine 
  • increase stability and strength of the body muscles
Types of therapy and their action: 
  • dry needling - serves to release the lumbar muscles, increase the mobility of the lumbar spine, reduce pain and stimulate tissue regeneration
  • chiropractic - acts in such a way that it instantly increases mobility in the lumbar spine area and allows the patient to freely perform rehabilitation exercises 
  • mobility exercises - increase flexibility and mobility in the lumbar spine and musculature
  • strength exercises - restore strength and normal core function 
Rehabilitation of the spine

Frequently asked questions about sciatica:

One of the most common causes of sciatica is discus hernia in which doctors often recommend surgery. 

According to new research and knowledge, surgery in most cases is not necessary and the spine is operated only in 2 situations: when the patient is completely immobile and when he is unable to control urine and stool.

Lumboishialgia (sciatica) is in most cases a chronic condition that bothers patients for many years.

I booked the first appointment based on a recommendation due to long-term problems with the lumbar region, cervical spine, migraines, tingling in the feet and sciatica in both legs. With the first treatment, we solved the inflammation and pain in the upper back and trapezius, for which I ended up in the emergency room before arriving. With the second treatment I no longer feel sciatica or tingling in my feet. My body is recovering phenomenally every day. I booked a third appointment, so long-term constant problems (12 years!!!) Toni solved in just 3 treatments. I am delighted with the approach and professionalism of physiotherapist Toni. It is not enough to say that I am grateful and sincerely recommend it from the bottom of my heart.

I came with a problem of the cervical and lumbar spine (which lasts 15 years), tingling in the legs (as a consequence of sciatica), and injury of the ankle and Achilles tendon of the leg from a year ago. He solved all my problems with dry needling and chiropractic techniques. Tony is extremely accessible and explains everything he does in detail. Expertise, customer relationship, and communication are at a very high level. I would definitely recommend him to anyone who has not been helped by conventional techniques.

I came to Tony through the recommendation of a handball player friend and I did not regret it. In several treatments, he solved the problem of a painful cervical spine and jaw that was painful to the movement and bite. The mobility of the jaw is very important to me because I'm in the singing business. The boyfriend also came with a problem with the cervical and lumbar spine, tingling in the legs, and injury to the wrist and tendon of the leg. He solved our problems with dry needling and chiropractic techniques. Toni is very approachable and everything he does he explains in detail, and also without hesitation you can ask him anything you want to know, so we let him in without fear. Business, expertise, customer relationship, and communication 5+.

After two dry needling treatments, my shoulder and neck loosened up, and the tension eased enough that after two months I finally have no headaches and no more dizziness. After the third dry needling treatment, the remaining pain on the right side, like muscle tension, has almost disappeared. I'm looking forward to the last treatment. Although it is known as a painful treatment, it was very tolerable for me, and it even seemed very relaxing. I am very glad that I found Toni on IG.

Physio Toni is a very pleasant, educated and humble young person, who knows his job without much mystification and philosophy "hits the head" and immediately goes to solve the problem as quickly as possible and more than successfully. In communication, he is also pleasant and measured, adapts to the patient and has wide knowledge and can talk to him about various topics, which makes the treatment even easier and leads to the feeling that the treatment lasts much shorter than it really does.So successful in my case that after 9 months of almost vegetating due to enormous pain, after the first treatment, I started walking at least 5 km a day, and after the second I started again working out! I can only recommend this young expert in his field and say a big thank you to him.

If I could give 100 stars, it would be small. It's actually hard for me to put together impressions and sentences and to fully express how grateful I am. What a relief after years of shoulder discomfort and inability to rotate, when you finally manage to rotate your shoulder all the way. No pain! Tony's expertise, knowledge, and love for his job are evident in his every sentence. The problem is approached directly, without BS, immediately tells what and how to expect. I had high expectations that he exceeded. Tony, thank you!

The man, without any philosophy, quickly and efficiently solved the problem of the lower spine, which had followed me for more than five years and which I thought would remain chronic. I recommend everyone to go and let Tony examine him and decide which solution is best. Tony, thank you again!

I'm gonna use the kids 'dictionary and say," I don't like dry needling!". With the recommendation of a friend who I talked to about the pain I was living with due to a messy life and long hours of computer work, I came to Tony for treatment. During the treatment, Tony eased my pain by talking and explaining. I went back for another treatment. Today I live without pain and I recommend Tony to everyone for his professionalism, expertise and human approach with respect to the client.
