Sciatic pain is one of the most intense pains a person can experience. Aggravation of the sciatic nerve causes sharp pain to shoot from your buttock to the knee or your foot.  It can start off as a dull ache after long spells sitting.

Common questions asked when it comes to sciatica are:

  • What is sciatica?
  • How can I gain relief from sciatica naturally?

What Is Sciatica?

A collection of nerves exit the spine at each of the lower vertebra (lumbar) and join together to form a large nerve about the thickness of your thumb. These nerves travel through the buttocks muscles, down the outside of the leg, split around the knee and carry onto the foot. As a result, several points exist where the nerve can become aggravated, creating a pain pathway.

The first way aggravation can occur is when the plexus of nerves leave the vertebra (like fingers getting caught in a door.) The large mass of muscle which forms the buttocks can become tight and squash the nerve (like someone squeezing your thumb tightly.) As the nerve travels further down the leg, complications from sciatica are less likely, although referred pain from the hip area can often cause pain to appear in the lower leg or foot too.

How Can I Break Free From Sciatica Pain?

Treating the problem, not just the symptoms, is the best way to help treat sciatica. In most cases, Myopractic care is a wonderful way to help alleviate the pain caused from sciatica. With Myopractic treatment there is no bone manipulation, instead it works on the muscles as it’s the muscles which move your bones. Working on the muscles is vital to see a lasting solution to sciatic pain. Not doing so may see you needing to go back from more treatment over and over again.  Myopractic treatment involves a series of firm rolling moves over the muscles causing the problem, relaxing the tight muscle.

 By taking the stress off the muscles, the bones move back into place, and the pain is relieved and disappears. 

People suffering from pain associated with back issues and sciatica are also encouraged to consider using a magnesium supplement. Tight muscles, muscle spasms and restless legs can all be signs of a magnesium deficiency. To contract muscles, calcium is needed, and to relax that muscle magnesium is used. When choosing the best magnesium supplement, it’s important to remember that not all magnesium supplements are the same. Magnesium Orotate is highly recommended as it is absorbs the best. 

Omega 3 is another good anti inflammatory for those suffering from sciatica pain as most of the nerves structure is made up of fat.
