Lower back pain can be experienced by people of all ages, and can severely hamper your lifestyle as well as your overall mood; being plagued by chronic pain can be very depressing.
For people who work out regularly, this can result from over stressing muscles, or incorrect form when lifting heavy objects. This should be dealt with properly when you are young, so that injuries do not become chronic and more serious. As we age, lower back pain can become more disabling, as the main culprit…Sciatica, becomes involved.
Sciatica is a condition that involves the sciatic nerve; this nerve runs down your back and into your legs. According to PositiveMed, when the sciatic nerve is pinched or compressed by a herniated disk, the condition known as Sciatica occurs making movement difficult and painful.
The video that you are about to watch below, is a Godsend for those of us who want to
manage our own aches and pains in a natural way. Physical therapist, Manu Kalia, illustrates a technique, using two tennis balls taped together, that will exercise and massage the muscles involved in causing your pain. It helps to break up the adhesions that aid in resolving the acute sciatic pain.
This wonderful technique serves to treat the symptoms of sciatica, however it doesn’t address the cause. An appropriate doctor should be seen to determine whether there is disc involvement or any malformations. Anti-inflammatory drugs, hot and cold packs, as
well as other treatments may well serve the remediation of your symptoms.
