Lower Back Pain and Sciatica.
Anyone who has not experienced lower back pain or sciatica should consider themselves lucky. Those who have suffered from sciatica or back pain know that even mild pain can cause discomfort and affect their routine. Sciatica is the largest nerve in the body and runs from lower back to feet through the back of legs.
Causes Of Sciatica Nerve Pain and Its Symptoms:
Sciatica pain can be caused by lumbar herniated disc, degenerative disc disease, spinal stenosis, and other disc related problems. Symptoms of sciatica can be varying from mild to extreme depending on the damage to the nerve. One might experience tingling and numbness or sharp shooting pain down the legs. Other symptoms of sciatica nerve pain include constant pain in one side of buttock or leg or sometimes in both legs. A person might also feel weakness and experience difficulty in moving his or her leg, foot or toes. The pain is more when sitting and sometimes it’s so sharp that it may make it difficult for a person to stand up and walk.
Massage Therapy For Sciatica And Back Pain:
A well-trained massage therapist can be of assistance as one deals with the back pain. The massage therapists can provide relief by encouraging blood circulation that helps with releasing the pressure that the nerve might be experiencing. As one visits a massage therapist, the therapist will work on the key muscle areas related to sciatica pain, such as the hamstring muscles, piriformis and also the glutes.
