You will also learn a simple technique you can use now to ease some of your pain. Something I'm sure you want as soon as possible.
To solve your lower back pain and sciatica problems you need techniques you can use daily, that are easy and quick to apply that take no time away from your busy life. Although back pain may at times rule your life, the cures shouldn't.
The most common question asked about back pain relief is...
What are the simple steps to follow?
Sciatica pain relief is the same as relieving any type of back pain. You need to address the main factors that cause it. If you only go part way in your attempts to remove your back pain, it will either remain or return again soon.
When back pain returns it tends to become worse with each episode. This is why so many elderly people complain on constant nagging back pain that never seems to ease, even slightly. When you have sciatica this commonly becomes even more severe and surgery becomes the only option.
Failing to address all the factors causing your sciatica, will lead you to your older years suffering from back pain.
The solutions for back pain relief are simple. You need to release tension in the tight muscles; this is accomplished by stretching (although it is knowing how and when to stretch that is most important). Weak muscles need to have their nerve and blood supply stimulated, before you try to exercise them. This saves valuable time trying in vain to build strength.
Joints need to move correctly and your pelvis needs to be balanced. These last two factors are probably the most important, if your joints and pelvis do not improve, your muscular system will continually fail.
There are simple, painless and quick ways to ease joints into motion and even more simple ways to rebalance your pelvis.
Knowing what to do, leads you to the second most common question...
What sciatica pain relief techniques can I use now?
The following technique may ease your sciatica, but it is only temporary relief. There is many reasons why sciatica occurs. It is a complex issue that is easily solved, but there is one VITAL step you must perform to get long lasting relief, more on that soon.
The common muscles that cause sciatica are your Piriformis and Lower Back muscles (Erector spinae). The Piriformis is common as the muscle has the sciatic nerve running through or next to it.
The lower back muscles are also common as the sciatic nerve is formed from the 5 lower joints. If these muscles tighten the nerve can be irritated at its' source.
This technique helps with this.
All you need to do is lie on your back, you can keep your knees bent if you wish. Place your hands into fists and then lie on your knuckles. Your knuckles should be in the muscles either side of your spine.
Your body weight on your knuckles will release the lower back muscles and this also activates a few acupressure points also relating to back pain.
While you lie there, do so for about 10 breaths. Breathe deeply and slowly, trying to relax as much as possible as you breathe out.
Once you complete this stand up gently and go for a good 10 minute walk. Walk slowly initially as your back may feel a little different.
This is a simple technique that can ease pain quickly. Like I said, it is only temporary relief and you need to address all the factors causing it. The first and vital step is...
The one essential step in sciatica pain relief
You know that you must release muscle tension, build muscle strength, correct joint movement and balance your pelvis. Which of these is essential to remove sciatica along term?
None of them.
The only essential step in sciatica pain relief is finding the cause. The cause is not how you sit, stand, lift or bend. The cause is the distortion patterns in your spine that allow muscle and joint imbalances and lead to your sciatic pain.
Unless you can identify these patterns you will not know what or where to target. The biggest mistake people make in trying to relieve sciatica is using techniques without knowing what and where to target.
There are many techniques that will give you only muscle techniques, some practitioners will only adjust joints, and the cure rates for sciatica are extremely poor. Less than 25% of you in pain now will be pain free in one year, the rest of you are worse or the same.
The reason is people rely on one technique and they also fail to find the patterns that created your pain.
What is the best approach to ease your sciatica pain?
To get long lasting results you must both remove the symptoms and the cause. First you must identify which spinal imbalances are present, then attack the symptomatic processes. This can be achieved by using many techniques from ice/heat, Acupressure and anti-inflammatory measures. Then you must perform corrective techniques that target the spinal imbalances.
The principles of Spinal Balancing address the both the pain and the root cause of the condition that is responsible for your sciatica. Through self assessments, your individual spinal imbalances can be identified, and a targeted corrective program can be developed for your specific needs.
