Sciatica can be a debilitating condition that not only stops you from performing simple tasks but can also have a major impact both on your life and those people around you.
Sciatica refers to pain caused by the sciatic nerve, which starts at the lower back and runs through the buttock and down the back of the leg.
It is important to properly assess diagnose and treat the cause of sciatica correctly.

Dr Donnoli's techniques and procedures are performed in accordance with the ACA (Australian Chiropractors Association) guidelines. This means that a strict protocol is followed in each assessment, diagnosis and treatment of a patient.
When patients experience sciatica, a thorough case history is first taken to determine the cause and (likely) mechanism of the injury and to confirm whether chiropractic treatment is suitable.
Our team take the time to understand your case history. Then a full examination of your injury takes place.
This includes an assessment of the location of the injury, as well as a thorough review of the muscle and neurological systems. Occasionally further tests (such as x-rays) are recommended to help with the diagnostic process.
After analysis of your results, your diagnosis and a recommendation will be discussed.
Dr Donnoli allocates adequate time to address questions or any concerns that you may have.
All assessments and treatments are based on sound clinical practices and techniques and a positive client outcome is our main priority.
Chiropractic treatment will not commence until a patient’s consent is given and we complete the required protocols.
