Sciatica Pain Relief in The WoodlandsThe sciatic nerve is the longest nerve in the human body.

How to relieve sciatica painOnce your doctor has determined the cause of your pain you can visit your local Relax The Back store for a great range of sciatica pain relief products such as:
Inversion tableThis involves lying on a table that holds you in place while you gently turn upside down. Inversion reduces pressure on your back, which can provide sciatica pain relief. It also encourages blood flow to the affected area and promotes faster healing. Regularly using an inversion table is a great preventative measure to avoid spinal problems in the future.
Seating support productsA supportive back cushion, which encourages you to sit with a neutral spine, will significantly help sciatica pain management. You can also try putting a supportive knee cushion under your knees while sitting for long periods.
Sleep ProductsMany people find sciatica pain is worse at night and upon waking in the morning. Pressure-relieving memory foam mattresses and overlays will help to relieve pain and stiffness by ensuring your spine is supported through the night. You can also try sleeping with a supportive knee pillow to take added pressure off your spine.
