Free Webinar: Living with Sciatica & Chronic Pain – feat. a Patient Expert

Sciatica can be a real pain in the buttocks, particularly if it is a persistent or chronic pain. In this free, interactive webinar for the public, we will be examining sciatica and chronic pain with the help of a patient expert. If you or a loved one have experienced pain or numbness in the lower back, legs or throughout the body, especially if it is chronic pain, you might want to sign up to this webinar to understand why, and what can be done to help. 


Dr Deepak Ravindran, Pain Management Consultant, will be helping us to understand the underlying causes of sciatica, when pain radiates from the lower back down the leg. Alongside Dr Ravindran, a patient expert, who is living with the condition, will be discussing the role of chronic pain as an invisible disability and their experience of how it can affect peoples’ everyday lives. 


We will also be examining the holistic, integrated treatment options to manage sciatica, including physical therapy exercises, manipulations, and massages, in order to get the best outcome.


This course is aimed at the general public. If you are a healthcare practitioner, you may want to recommend this course to your patients. Please feel free to book yourself on, but if you would like to hear a more in-depth, medical analysis of the connections between chronic pain, sciatica and Fibromyalgia, you may be interested in booking onto Dr Ravindran’s course "Webinar: Fibromyalgia & Chronic Pain – An Examination” for AHPs on Tuesday 22nd September. 


We will send you an email with instructions to register and gain access to the webinar 'room' on the day of the event.
