Using the power of innovative science and modern technology, Dr SW Clinic can help you live your best pain-free life without the need for invasive surgery.
Sciatica is a common and painful condition that affects the sciatic nerve, which is the largest nerve in the body. This nerve runs from the lower back down through the buttocks and legs, and when it becomes irritated or compressed, it can lead to a range of symptoms.
Early intervention and appropriate treatment can help manage symptoms and improve outcomes.
At Dr SW Clinics, we can treat a range of pain conditions using Regenerative Medicine and pain-relieving injections. If you are tired of living with pain and looking for a non-surgical intervention, then Dr SW Clinics could help you get back to your optimal quality of life.

Sciatica typically occurs when there is pressure or irritation on the sciatic nerve. Common causes include:
- Herniated Disc: When a disc in the spine herniates or ruptures, the inner material can press against the nerve roots that form the sciatic nerve.
- Spinal Stenosis: Narrowing of the spinal canal can compress the nerve roots or the sciatic nerve itself.
- Degenerative Disc Disease: As discs in the spine naturally wear down with age, they can lead to changes in the spine that irritate the nerve.
- Spondylolisthesis: This condition involves one vertebra slipping over another, potentially putting pressure on the sciatic nerve.
- Piriformis Syndrome: The sciatic nerve can pass through or under the piriformis muscle in the buttocks. If this muscle becomes tight or spasms, it can compress the nerve.
The most common symptom of sciatica is pain that radiates from the lower back down the back of one leg. Other common symptoms include:
- Sharp, shooting, or burning pain.
- Numbness or tingling in the leg or foot.
- Weakness in the affected leg.
- Difficulty sitting or standing for extended periods.
- Pain that worsens with certain movements, such as sitting, standing, or walking.
Depending on the joint issue you present with, there may be a couple of ways to diagnose your pain and thereby find you a lasting solution.
Firstly, you will have a telephone consultation with one of our highly trained patient advisors. This patient advisor will ask you a series of pre-assessment questions to better understand your personal needs.
You will then be invited for a consultation with one of our leading experts. To better gain an understanding of the problem, the Consultant may suggest you receive an x-ray or an MRI.
What is an x-ray?
A diagnostic test that can help identify what issues are causing the pain.
What is an MRI?
A diagnostic test using a magnetic field and radio waves for a detailed image of both joint and soft tissue.
What is an ultrasound?
Typically a handheld device that provides an on the spot image of the soft tissue.
Once we’ve received the results of your diagnostic tests, our team will be able to advise you on next best steps to get you pain free.
