Low Back Pain Physiotherapy At Physio4Wycombe
Low back pain can be a complicated business. The lumbar spine is made up of 5 large vertebrae with discs positioned in between. Exiting at each vertebral level are a pair of spinal nerves, these nerves supply motor (muscle) and sensory (touch) information to the lower limbs with each individual nerve responsible for different areas and muscles of the lower extremities.
There are many muscles and ligaments passing through, as well as attaching to and from the lower back, so between the joints, discs and all these muscles, ligaments and nerves it means there are multiple structures that operate as potential sources of low back pain. If you are looking for treatment for l back pain then consulting Physio4Wycombe is the best first step where we are trained to treat the cause not just the symptoms.
Potential Causes Of Low Back Pain

Sciatica is a regular complaint seen at Physio4Wycombe. Sciatica is a set of symptoms that can be caused by irritation or compression to one of the lumbar spinal nerve roots that make up the sciatic nerve. Sciatic pain is typically felt in the lower back, buttocks and/or varying parts of the leg and foot, in addition to pain, numbness, pins and needles, tingling, muscular weakness may also be felt. A diagnosis of sciatica does not give an indication of what is irritating the nerve root it is just an set of symptoms that suggest the nerve root is being irritated. At Physio4Wycombe we are very experienced at getting to the cause of your sciatica.
