Anyone who has experienced sciatic nerve pain or sciatica can tell you how unpleasant it can be. It originates in your lower spine area, and even without any kind of injury. Usually, sciatica pain will occur in your buttocks. It will then spread out down your upper thigh. The pain rarely spreads out to the foot.
This pain will be felt in the fleshy areas. However, it stems out from nerves coming out from your spinal cord into the intervertebral disks.
Don’t apply pressure on the area because it can worsen the sciatic pain. In fact, there are many other things that you should be careful doing because they can simply flare up sciatic pain. These include:
– Going to bathroom
And even your normal activities.
So How To Treat This Pain?
One treatment that is followed for sciatica is to use pain relievers. It also involves avoiding any stress on your spinal area. This can be achieved only if you rest and limit your activities. But this treatment is not actually ‘treatment’ in the true sense. It’s just reducing pain without any benefits in the long run.
The good thing about sciatica is that almost 87 percent of it will heal itself in around 90 days. Can you imagine what is the most common cause found behind sciatica and the appearance of back pain? Its job dissatisfaction.
So the trigger is somewhere within your emotions, and its interesting that it can create such a big physical effect.
If you look at the Traditional Chinese Medicine, you will find that sciatic pain is related to kidney chi going down. The causes behind this are claimed to be because of excess wind, cold and dampness. So Traditional Chinese Medicine suggests warming your kidney using different food options and herbs.
It is quite fascinating that there can be different approaches towards the treatment of same health issues, and all of them could be beneficial, yet being different from each other.
