If you’ve been dealing with sciatica (pain shooting into the buttocks and down the leg) - it’s very tempting to think that it will go away on its own. Or, you’ve been told that sciatic pain is just something that comes with age...

There’s no obvious reason why it happened - but it doesn’t seem to be going away!

If that’s happening to you, you’re not alone - and we hear this type of thing all the time. In fact, Sciatica is one of the most common problems that we see in people with back pain at our physical therapy clinic in Freeland.

And when it comes to living with sciatica, everybody we see wants to know

"Why is This Happening to Me?"


“Why Am I Still Suffering With Sciatic Pain After Putting Up With It For Months (Maybe Years)"

Most people think that when they get sciatic pain, it’s just going to go away on its own.

That they’ll wake up one morning and like “magic”, it’ll be as if their sciatica never happened… But then 6 months later you’re still getting sciatic pain – and more often than when it started.

Does that sound Like You?

Another scenario we see all the time in our physical therapy clinic is when people go to the Doctors, and the Doctor tells them to rest and “try these painkillers” and “see how it goes”

Most of the time these pain killers only mask the pain and you end up back in the doctors office asking for even more medication.

Has This Type of Thing Happened to You?

Why else does sciatic pain last longer than it should do? Well, it’s easy to get confused because you’ve been told different things, by different people and by searching for solutions on the internet. There’s lots of people out there who are happy to dispense advice - but not all of it is credible.

The problem with advice you’ll find online or from a non-credible source is that without truly understanding the root cause of your sciatica pain, the things you try to eliminate it might be making your pain worse.

If you don’t know what you’re doing – sciatic nerve pain can be very confusing and because of this, many people just end up accepting it as ‘part of life’ - as if it’s normal, and ‘just the way it is’.

Do You Feel That Way Too?

If You’re Currently Living With Sciatica Pain, Here’s 7 More Reasons Why It Could Be Lasting Longer Than It Should:

  • You thought it would go away on its own - but it didn’t
  • You went to the Doctor who told you to rest and take painkillers - but the pills did nothing to help your sciatica, and as soon as they wore off chronic pain struck again
  • A family member, or friend, told you that everybody gets aches and pains as they get older, so you just accepted it
  • You tried other healthcare professionals, or a physical therapist in the past, but nothing they said or did seemed to help
  • You tried Google or YouTube exercises but they either didn’t do a thing, or made your sciatica pain ten times worse
  • You thought it would be a good idea to rest because your sciatica pain was so bad, but all that did was make the pain come back more often
  • You decided to get a few “massages” hoping that would fix the pain, but they only felt nice and relaxing, and didn’t do anything to fix it long term…

If any of these have happened to you - we would love to help you by inviting you to book a call to talk with one of our physical therapists to find out what can be done to help you. The fact that you’ve tried any or all of these things already is actually a GOOD THING because when you know what doesn’t work - you are closer to finding the thing that does!

Our goal is to help you make the right decision about what to do next.

What can I do to get rid Of My Sciatica Quickly?...

Well, here's 4 things you can do:

  • First off, you need to make a decision about getting help. So many people procrastinate for so long, thinking that back pain will ‘just go away with time’, but then 6 months down the line they’re still putting up with it, and nothing’s changed… Or it gets worse
  • Next, do the RIGHT exercises - one of the best things to help you relieve your sciatica pain is to do the right series of progressed exercises - the right exercises given to you by a physical therapist will help reduce pain, and allow you to move freely again quick - and make sure that the problems don’t come back anytime soon (or aggravate your sciatica pain even more like some exercises do)
  • Avoid sitting and long periods of rest - ever tried to get up from the sofa after resting for a while, but you struggle because you get a shooting pain in your buttocks and down your legs? That’s because one of the worst things you can do that adds to sciatica is rest, and sit for long periods of time. Too much rest, and sitting in awkward positions makes your back stiff and tight. It would really help if you were given appropriate strengthening exercises for better posture, alongside hands-on treatment, to get you active and healthy as quickly as possible.
  • Get real, “hands-on” physical therapy - Physical Therapy is proven to help people with sciatica pain. In fact at Functional Advantage it’s one of the most common injuries we see. If your sciatica is affecting your job, your ability to keep active, if it threatens your independence or gets in the way of spending quality time with family and friends - physical therapy can help get you back to living the life you deserve as quickly as possible.

Jim G.

In His 70’s from Freeland, MI.

I never thought physical therapy could help my back, but, my back was sore all the time and it kept me from doing things that I liked to do. I went to a chiropractor and I did therapeutic massages a couple of times. Neither one of them helped.

But physical therapy, the ease of doing these stretches and they worked around you for your appointments whenever you were available, they made it happen. Great work. Why suffer with back pain? If you don't have to.


Paul B.

In His 40’s Freeland, MI

I spend a lot of time at the desk and I started having some trouble with hip pain, sciatica down the side of the leg, into the lower back, trouble sitting for long periods of time. The pain had been happening for probably upwards of 10 years. Ultimately what led me in here was I was having trouble playing golf. I'm definitely on a good path now and I know there's no reason to have to live with pain.

Zach V.

In His 30’s Freeland, MI

I suffered a lower back injury when I was out in the woods. I just stepped wrong and tweaked my back. After I got home that night I couldn't even stand up straight. After sleeping on it, I knew I had to do something pretty quickly. I called Functional Advantage and I got in as soon as possible.
