EFFECTIVE WAYS TO BEAT SCIATICA & BACK PAIN
Whether it’s a sudden, shooting pain down your leg or a persistent ache in your lower back, sciatica can seriously impact your daily life. While medications, injections and even surgery sometimes help people with sciatic nerve pain, physical therapy is the most effective and least invasive way to eradicate the problem. Physical therapy is invaluable for easing sciatic pain. Its effectiveness stems from the multi-faceted approach your therapist will take in order to reduce the pressure on the nerve. Improving your strength and the flexibility in your hip area can do much to decrease the pressure on your sciatic nerve, which in turn will relieve the pain you feel. The muscle and ligament structure of your hips tend to tighten if you spend too much time sitting. That causes your spine to take on the strain, often leading to sciatic nerve impingement.
To combat this undue pressure, physical therapists work to increase hip mobility by helping you stretch your hip abductors and flexors. This opens up the pathway, which your sciatic nerve runs, so that the nerve is freed from compression. In addition, strengthening hip abductors muscles, as well as building mobility, will enable the muscles and ligaments in your hips to be better aligned. Improved strength in your hip area, allows the effort used in everyday movement to be more evenly distributed, and therefore less apt to result in nerve irritation. Let the experts at Kinect Physical Therapy help you improve your mobility. Give us a call at the location nearest you today!
