Quick Sciatic Nerve Pain Relief
Most sciatic pain is due to irritation to the sciatic nerve. The nerve originates in the lower back, and then travels through one of the muscles in your buttock before traveling down your leg.
Irritation can occur anywhere along the path of the nerve. The more common sites are the lower back and the muscle in the buttock.
To ease pain that comes from the lower back, you simply need to use ice and heat.
Place ice on the lower back and Sacro-Iliac joint (the joint to the side in the dimple area of your lower back) for ten minutes, and then replace with heat for ten minutes. Repeat this three times in one session.
Then use this often during the day.
The ice helps reduce inflammation and the heat improves the blood supply to the area, which will help remove any toxic products in the area and stimulate healing.
This is the quickest and best way to get sciatic nerve pain relief, especially if the lower back joints are involved.
To target the muscle in the buttock you need to stretch it. It is called the Piriformis muscle and attaches along the sacrum (the wedge shaped bone at the base of your spine) and out to the top of your thigh bone.
There are a few simple ways to stretch the Piriformis muscle
The simplest way to stretch this to get sciatic nerve pain relief is to pull your knee towards your opposite shoulder. You will feel a deep stretch in the area of the buttock.
Make sure you only stretch until you feel a pulling sensation, if you stretch until the point where pain occurs, the muscle will not relax. Once you feel the pull, simply hold the leg at this point until you feel the muscle relax. You can then pull a little further and repeat the process a couple of times.
Another way to stretch the muscle is demonstrated in the following video. This stretch can be more effective but if you are in pain you may not find this always easy to perform...
Both of these techniques will help to ease pain, but here are many other ways that can help too. But if you want lasting relief then you need to click the following link...
The reason why lasting sciatic nerve pain relief eludes most is that people only use symptom based techniques.
Do You Know How To Get Long Lasting Relief?
Lasting sciatica relief only occurs when you remove both the symptoms and the cause. In fact the biggest mistake made in all back pain relief methods is relying on pain as an indicator.
Pain is the last thing to arrive and the first thing to leave. But even once pain has left, the cause may still remain.
The cause of sciatica is not how you lift, bend or twist. It is in fact imbalances in your spine that occur due to an accumulation of stress on your spine over months or even longer. The stresses allow imbalances to occur that in time create muscle and joint problems.
Once the joints and muscles become involved that is when irritation to your sciatic nerve will develop.
There are four common imbalances that can occur in your spine that can lead to sciatica.
To get lasting sciatic nerve pain relief you therefore need to follow a simple program that first identifies which imbalance you have. Following that you need to use effective pain relief.
Pain relief doesn't necessarily mean using medication. There are many ways you can reduce pain quickly and safely without popping a pill or rubbing on a cream.
Once you reduce pain thought you still need to address the underlying causes, which requires technqiues to correct both muscle and joint imbalances. With the aid of specific sciatica exercises, strteches and joint techniques you can remove the underlying cause simply. Without removing the underlying cause, you will find that sciatic nerve pain relief is temporary at best.
The link below will demonstrate the simple program you can follow that will eliminate your pain both short and long term. Simply click the link if you want lasting sciatic nerve pain relief.
