Sciatica is a condition that can cause lower back pain and leg pain. It occurs when the sciatic nerve, which runs from the lower back to the feet, becomes compressed or irritated. Sciatica may also come from degenerative disc changes in the lumbar and sacral area or a disc bulge pressing against the nerve root.
Sciatica can be extremely painful and may make it difficult to walk or stand for long periods of time. It can cause pain running down the back, thigh, leg and foot.
It is also common for sciatica to result from some overly tight muscles around the hips causing pressure on the sacral nerve. Body functional asymmetry can also be a cause. It could be as simple as that one small muscle down the back of the leg putting pressure on the sciatic nerve.
However, there are treatments available that can help to ease the pain and improve mobility.
At Good Bowen Therapy, I don’t just treat the symptoms of sciatica. I can identify the primary cause and, using Bowen techniques, help to relieve the pain while treating the primary cause of the pain.
As a professional Bowen therapist, I am ready to take care of your pain. Based in Sunshine North, I service a wide local area across Melbourne’s western suburbs including Caroline Springs, Essendon, Footscray, St Albans, Sunshine and other nearby areas.
The nerve passage inside the wrist is named the carpal tunnel. Sometimes this passage can be interrupted, usually by repetitive strain injuries caused by hand work or by a fall. Inflammation in and around the tunnel results in swelling, placing pressure on the nerves causing what is known as carpal tunnel syndrome.
Common symptoms of carpal tunnel include tingling, numbness, pins and needles and hand weakness.
There are surgical treatments for carpal tunnel. However, these tend to leave areas of scar tissue, which can become harder than the surrounding tissue. This area of scar tissue can lead to a different kind of pain than that caused by the original condition.
At Good Bowen Therapy, I have extensive experience working with clients with carpal tunnel. I can work to relieve the pain symptoms, identify the primary cause of the pain and use gentle natural therapy to release the tension caused by the scar tissue.
At Good Bowen Therapy, I provide professional Bowen therapy for neck and headache pain, frozen shoulder, back and hip pain, knee and foot pain and more. With happy and pain-free clients all over Melbourne’s west, I can help you too.
I provide the best lower back pain services across a wide area, including Caroline Springs, Essendon, Footscray, St Albans, Sunshine and other nearby areas.
