Hello Rachael,

We suggest a course of treatment between 6-10 sessions for sciatica patients, however this may differ depending on the severity of the problem.

Initially it is recommended that you attend two sessions per week to decrease pain and restore general range of motion and strength to the spine. Once your condition stabilises, we may recommend you to decrease the frequency of treatment to once per week or every 2 weeks, while during this period you perform a home exercise program as prescribed by your physiotherapist.

The long term goal is that you are able to self manage your problem by avoiding avoiding aggravating tasks and perform maintenance exercises.

Feel free to contact us for any more info.
