Many people suffer from Sciatica. It’s a nerve pain that can shoot through the butt all the way down the leg. It happens because nerves are compressed. Sometimes that is because of a herniated disc in the spine. In that case, you need to see a doctor or specialist for treatment options like artificial disc replacement.
But, treating the Sciatica immediately is very important to be able to keep up in your daily life. Resting Sciatica can be the worst decision.
Stretching out the nerves is the only way to get relief. You must push through the pain. That’s why most patients will take prescription pain-relievers, while working out the Sciatica nerves. Talk to your doctor to find out your options, there are non-narcotic pain-relievers on the market.
Tips for working out the Sciatic nerve is, laying on your stomach and arching your back, to prop up on your elbows and hold is a great way to stretch out the right areas. Repeat process several times. Also, walking and swimming have had much success in treating Sciatica. Be sure not to over shoot, with running or lifting while suffering from Sciatica. And yes, rest when needed, but resting to heal, doesn’t work with this compression of the nerves.
Another simple tip to remember is good bedding, such as pillows and mattresses along with activity can help with back care, to prevent or aid after disc replacement.
