EXERCISES FOR SCIATIC NERVE & BACK PAIN
TREATMENTModern treatment for sciatica involves pain relievers and avoidance of stress on the spinal area by resting and limiting activities. Even though this may reduce pain, it doesn’t have many long term effects. Most (87%) sciatica’s actually heal spontaneously within 3 months. Interestingly, emotional distress, especially job dissatisfaction, has been most often found to be highly correlated with both the occurrence and persistence of back pain and sciatica. It makes you think, doesn’t it? About how our emotions and life choices can have such a physical effect on our bodies? From a Traditional Chinese Medicine view, sciatic pain relates to kidney chi being low, which can be caused by too much dampness, cold, and wind. Treatment from a TCM approach would involve warming up the kidney via various herbs and food choices. I find it interesting to consider the many approaches to treating the same health problem, all of which can be effective and yet be entirely different. The link below goes into great detail about the TCM approach and the science behind it.
