Sciatica Pain Treatment
Sciatic nerve pain can be associated with minimal or severe pain along one side of the body. Starting from the lower back, it can continue through the hips and down each leg. This may cause inflammation, numbness, and pain in the back and affected leg. Sciatic nerve pain can be caused by; age, obesity, occupation, prolonged sitting or diabetes. A 2014 study found that Deep Tissue massage may be as effective as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs for relieving lower back pain, which can be a symptom of sciatica.
LaVida Massage offers sciatica pain treatment to target the specific area that needs attention, as well as alleviate the pain caused by a herniated disk or pinched nerve. If your sciatic pain is caused from an injury or surgery, consult your doctor to find out if massage is approved first.
