Sciatic Treatment For Quick Back Pain Relief
Sciatic back pain happens when a group of nerves from the lower back that form the sciatic nerve are compressed or pinched. Because of this, people can feel serious pain in their lower back and legs. For some victims, without proper treatment, the pain can be excruciating. Here are some rules of thumb for sciatic pain treatment:
- Get a second opinion if you’re told you need surgery. In most cases, sciatic treatment is non-surgical. If a doctor tells you that you definitely need surgery for your sciatic pain, be sure to get a second opinion first. Make sure you exhaust other treatment options before you have a costly and potentially dangerous surgery. Every surgery that involves the nerves of the spine has the potential to do serious long term harm.
- Get the exercise you need. While it may seem counter intuitive, the best sciatic treatment is not bed rest, but exercise. Over time, inactivity only makes the pain worse. What’s more, the less exercise you do, the more your other back muscles become weakened from inactivity. This increases the likelihood of injuring another part of the back. A variety of exercises exist for sciatic treatment, differing depending upon how the injury occurred. Over the long term, exercise is one of the best ways to heal the back. To find the best exercises for your situation, check with your doctor, chiropractor, or physical therapist.
- Use heat and/or ice. Sciatic pain can also be mitigated by using heat or ice. These are very inexpensive, non-pharmaceutical ways traditionally used to treat back pain. At the beginning of severe sciatic pain, use ice. After a few days, switch from ice to heat. A simple heating pad, hot bath, or a warm gel pack can help to loosen tight muscles around the back. Heat can be applied for 15 â€“ 20 minutes for minor back tension, or as long as two hours at a time for serious back problems.
