3 Easy Ways To Manage Your Sciatica!

Sciatica is a term used for a pain that shoots down one or at times both sides of the legs. This is a cause from irritation or compression of the sciatic nerve. This is a common issue with people suffering from sciatica hence why many have heard of this term before. In this blog we will be talking about the common causes of sciatica and how we can manage this condition!

Common Causes Of Sciatica

  • Disc protrusion in the lower back causing inflammation and compression of the sciatic nerve
  • Bone or disc degeneration in the lower back region
  • Spondylolisthesis
  • Tight Piriformis Muscle causing compression of the sciatic nerve – most common cause due to over-sitting

3 Ways To Manage Sciatica

  • Avoid prolonged sitting and get moving more!
  • Stretching and exercising the lower back and glute muscles to reduce tension within the area!
  • Seeing a chiropractor! Chiropractors are able to alleviate symptoms of sciatica by decompressing the spine and reducing tension within the piriformis muscle if its causing symptoms.
