How to prevent sciatica nerve pain?

The sciatic nerve comes out the lumbar spine typically through the piriformis muscle. This is the piece of slice shaped muscle from the sacrum to the hip joint, it comes down the back of the leg and then to the front.

A person having an issue with the sciatic nerve, either inflammation or there is an impingement in the lumbar spine or the piriformis muscle is tense and presses on the nerve, may feel like pain numbness or weakness or tingling which start from all the way from the lower back.

I will give you three great tips to prevent sciatica. As stated before, sciatica is the pain that runs down the leg. Briefly, the cause of that pain is a disc, that has come out of its normal alignment and that is pressing on one of the nerves.

1. Maintain good alignment and posture

The posture is key to avoid sciatica pain. Many people work bending or seat long hours in their offices, etc. Those people are in an unfavourable alignment in their spine which allows the disc to pop out. So adopting a healthy posture by keeping it upright and the back straight will definitely make a difference in minimising sciatica pain.

2. Strength the core muscles

Core muscles protect your spine, so if you don't strengthen the muscles in your abdomen and in the back, what might happen when a force goes directly to your spine? Doing activities every day to make this area stronger, added to a good posture, will make a big difference.

3. Do the right movements on a daily basis

If you need to lift up an object from, for instance, from your car trunk, if that object is heavy it will be better putting your back in an alignment that will allow you to bend your knees and maintain your back straight and the object close to your body. Don't bend just your back, use the support of your knees, your thighs, and your upper extremity. You will be preventing problems. Whatever you lift, or every time you need to bend, even if you have been doing it wrong before in the day, try to do it right the next time, as when we get mature it is easier to get injured with bad postures and movements when lifting object, even if they are light, it can lead to back pain.

If you suffer from sciatica, and even following these tips you feel get easily injured, consider, first go to your GP to be correctly evaluated, and visit a Qualified Massage Therapist, who can offer you a tailored treatment to relieve sciatica pain.
