Many people suffer from sciatica, but many others don’t know what it is. Sciatica is… “pain affecting the back, hip, and outer side of the leg, caused by compression of a spinal nerve root in the lower back, often owing to degeneration of an intervertebral disc.”

Did you know that the sciatic nerve is one of the largest nerves in body?

With sciatica, every injury is different so what might work & relieve pain for some, might not work & cause more pain for others, so it’s crucial to work with a qualified instructor. As well as Pilates classes, regular Pilates exercises are beneficial, wherever you are, at home, or even at work.
