Dr. J Hartley recently met with the Executive Director of CLEAR Scoliosis Institute to discuss the topic of scoliosis and sciatica. Throughout episode 7, Dr. J defines both scoliosis and sciatica, discusses the relationship between the two, describes common treatment for both, and talks about what to do if you are experiencing pain as a result of scoliosis and sciatica.
Questions and topics discussed during the episode include:
- What is sciatica and what are the associated symptoms?
- What is the relationship between scoliosis and sciatica?
- Does everyone with scoliosis experience sciatica?
- Common treatment methods for sciatica.
- Misconceptions about the pain associated with sciatica.
- What to do if you have scoliosis and experience sciatica.
Scoliosis, in and of itself, is a complex and confusing condition. When you add the pain associated with sciatica on top of an already complex condition, it can be frustrating, aggravating, and uncomfortable. If you find yourself struggling with this, know that there are steps you can take to proactively treat the cause of your sciatica and treat your scoliosis at the same time.
