    After googling and trying to find a place, I am so glad to have had my first chiropractic experience here. Not knowing what to expect and being extremely nervous and unwell at the time, the team have been nothing short but friendly, organised and professional with their care. Although my adjustments were early and minor, I felt the biggest biggest biggest relief in my neck, back and hip posture!! Thank you so much Mira, Dr Kenneth and Dr Seonhee

    The staff go above and beyond every time. They follow up with anything discussed that will help achieve the outcomes of the treatment. Dr. Kim and Dr. Basilio work together to keep you on track, which is something you rarely see in a clinic with multiple health practitioners. 5 stars isn't enough!

    I first went to My Back Relief a couple of years ago with recurring pain that not too many practitioners know how to treat. I feel so lucky to have found the clinic and been treated by Dr Paula Basilio who has a wholistic approach to healing and maintenance, and has the best team on board, from the friendly and accommodating reception staff to the other practitioners. Once you find the right practice you never leave! I also took my daughter there for treatment and she's hooked. Highly recommended.

    Pregnancy Sciatica Treatment Options

    If you’re pregnant and experience a shooting pain that starts in your lower back and shoots down to your leg, it may be sciatica, sciatic nerve interference or sometimes muscle weakness.

    While sciatica is most common in the third trimester, it can occur at any stage during your pregnancy. 

    In this article, you can read more about pregnancy sciatica and the different treatment options available to you.

    Pregnancy Sciatica Treatment

    What causes sciatica in pregnancy?

    Sciatica in pregnancy is typically caused when your growing baby and expanding uterus push up against your sciatic nerve. This may compress the sciatic nerve or place pressure on the nerve, which can cause inflammation, irritation, and pain.

    Other causes of sciatica and sciatic nerve pain:

    • Bone spurs
    • Vertebrae fracture or trauma injury
    • Piriformis syndrome
    • Lumbar herniated disc
    • Direct compression of the sciatic nerve
    • Tissue degeneration
    • Spinal stenosis
    • Spondylolisthesis

    The above-mentioned conditions may place pressure on the sciatic nerve or compress the nerve resulting in sciatica, and may be amplified during pregnancy.

    Pregnancy sciatica symptoms

    Sciatic nerve pain during pregnancy can vary from mild to severe. Along with the pain and discomfort, women may also experience tingling or numbness in the leg and foot as a result of the irritation. 

    Standing or sitting for a long time may also exacerbate the pain and discomfort.

    Sciatica pain relief in pregnancy

    There are a few approaches to help relieve sciatica in pregnancy including chiropractic care, soft tissue massage, modified stretches, applying heat and other forms of manual therapy and exercise.


    Sciatica pregnancy chiropractic treatment

    Chiropractic care for sciatica in pregnancy involves relieving pain, increasing joint range of motion, helping to balance posture and improve biomechanics.

    If your sciatic nerve is being impacted, we want to try and reduce the interference, which in turn reduces feelings of pain.

    Our team of fully qualified and government registered chiropractors can assist you with a variety of treatment options. Our hands-on methods include gentlier and modified adjustment techniques, soft tissue therapy, dry needling, and more.

    Additional care options may also include advice on activities and appropriate movement, specific exercises to strengthen important muscle groups, including the lower back and pelvic floor.
