Aventura / PRC - Sciatica - Pain Relief
As the longest single nerve in the human body, it’s no surprise that a large majority of people will suffer from irritation of the sciatic nerve at some point in their lives. Beginning in the lower back and running through the buttocks to the lower limbs, the sciatic nerve becomes inflamed after hours of prolonged sitting, standing, or lifting of heavy objects. Taking special precautions to avoid activities that inflame the nerve is the first step to finding pain relief for sciatica, along with bed rest, stretching, and specialized exercises designed to strengthen the muscles in your lower back.
Due to the central location of the sciatic nerve, it’s important to give your legs and back a chance to rest when you begin to feel the pain brought on by sciatica. Taking breaks from long periods of sitting and standing is an important part of your body’s healing process. Along with rest, most doctors recommend an active lifestyle to keep the muscles around your sciatic nerve healthy and strong. This doesn’t mean going out and signing up for a marathon, but regularly performing low impact exercises such as swimming and walking will help your back heal and prevent further irritation.
Targeting the spinal column and surrounding areas with exercise and stretching will also help you find pain relief for sciatica. Areas that you might not think are associated with back pain should be strengthened in order to provide support for your lower back. Focusing on your abdominal, gluteus maximus, and hip muscles in your strength building routine will decrease the risk of overextending your back when trying to perform certain movements that might exacerbate sciatic pain.
