Don't Let Sciatica Distract Life Accomplishments

“HOW TO TAKE CARE OF YOUR SCIATICA PAIN.”

Bad Habits Can Increase Your Pain Some seemingly harmless habits can also contribute to the irritation of the sciatic nerve. A frequent bad habit is crossing of the legs for extended periods, which puts pressure on the nerve. In addition, sitting for long periods is bad for your spine.
