Sciatica can be a very painful and debilitating condition, but luckily there may be a natural way to overcome it. The sciatic nerve is the longest nerve in our body. It runs from the lower back through the hip and along our leg to our heel. When the nerve is pinched it causes pain. In some cases of sciatica this is caused by a herniated or slipped disc that rubs against the nerve, but in many cases it is caused by a tight piriformis muscle in your buttox.
Sciatica can be felt as a mild leg cramp or can be excruciating pain radiating from the back down the leg. The pain can come on suddenly or gradually get worse. Many people don’t even realize they have sciatica. Many women experience sciatica for the first time during pregnancy.
The difficulty with sciatica and backache in general, is that when we are in pain, it causes us to contract our muscles. Contracted muscles, cause more pain, which in turn causes our muscles to contract more. We end up in a vicious circle of pain and contraction which just doesn’t seem to end.
This is where Reflexology can be so important. Reflexology, by inducing deep relaxation, can stop this cycle, even if only for a short time. Sometimes relaxing the body can be the most important step to relieving sciatica.
Reflexology is a therapy that aims to bring balance to all the systems of the body. Nerve pain is very draining both physically and emotionally. With sciatica it can be almost impossible to get comfortable with many people finding it very difficult to sit or lie down and only feeling a certain relief while they are standing or moving around which is exhausting in itself.
Reflexology aims to benefit the person’s nervous system by promoting deep relaxation and reducing stress levels.
Treating various reflex points on your feet will calm the nerves, promote your bodies own natural anti-inflammitories, help spinal flexibility, and help ease the pain from sciatica.
