Sciatica & Low Back Pain Relief
Sciatica is a condition that occurs when the sciatic nerve, which runs from the lower back down to the legs, becomes inflamed or compressed. This can cause pain, numbness, and tingling sensations in the lower back, buttocks, and legs. Sciatica can be caused by a variety of factors, including herniated discs, spinal stenosis, piriformis syndrome (pseudo-sciatica) and degenerative disc disease.
Massage therapy can be an effective way to manage sciatica pain. Massage can help to soothe tense muscles and reduce pressure on the sciatic nerve. Soft tissue massage may also help to increase your pain threshold by stimulating the release of endorphins and activating your parasympathetic (rest and digest) nervous system.
If you’re experiencing sciatica pain, it’s important to consult with your doctor before trying any new treatments. Your doctor can help you determine the underlying cause of your pain and recommend the best course of action.
If you’re interested in trying massage therapy for sciatica, find a Registered Clinical Massage Therapist familiar with sciatica (compression of the sciatic nerve / deep pressure into the portion of the sciatic nerve in the buttock area - which many Massage Therapists do - is actually counterintuitive to management of sciatica pain) who can also give homecare / remedial exercise to complement treatment. (Yours truly is not only experienced with sciatica treatments, she has experienced sciatica herself!)
