If you have Sciatica I am sorry, it sucks. There is no better way to describe it. It sucks the life out of you. It sucks the happiness out of you. And I bet you want answers. What is going on? What is causing this pain? Why is it happening to me? And how do I get rid of it NOW!
Sciatica is pain from a large nerve in the back of the leg called the Sciatic nerve. Think of it as a hose which supplies pain, sensation, and function to your leg and sometimes foot. If there is any stretching, pinching or irritation of that hose anywhere the water comes from (the brain and spinal cord) then pain and abnormal function can and probably will occur. Sometimes the pain is so bad that people have told me they cannot even sleep at night.
To fix the issue you must find the pinch in the hose (or nerve) and remove it to get relief. Sometimes you can push on the right spot to get temporary relief and there are a lot of videos on how to do that on youtube.com .
