Massage for sciatica
Today, the most common spine problem is inflammation (or pinching) of the sciatic nerve. The main symptom is pain in the spine, which can spread to the legs.
This problem appears in connection with intervertebral hernias caused by heavy physical exertion. It is important to remember that inflammation of the sciatic nerve, if untimely detected and addressed to specialists, can lead to an aggravation of the situation and the emergence of new health problems.
The sciatic nerve itself is the longest nerve in the entire human body. He is responsible for motor functions and sensitivity of the legs. A pinched sciatic nerve is a rather serious condition. It is accompanied by painful sensations in soft tissues, as well as the occurrence of inflammatory processes. In some cases, there is a displacement of tissues in the area of the sciatic nerve.
Pinching reasons and symptoms
Pinching of the sciatic nerve occurs in people who lead an inactive lifestyle without any physical exertion. This problem is often faced by people with sedentary work. Pinching itself can be caused by one of the following factors:
- Bruises, fractures, blows, injuries and other injuries in the sciatic nerve
- The presence of intervertebral hernias and protrusions
- Pelvic muscle problems
- Hypothermia or overheating of the human body
- The presence of tumors in the area of the nerve and cancer problems
- Various viral diseases
As for the symptoms, the main one is pain. Pain often occurs in the hip, pelvis or lower back. It is difficult for people with a pinched sciatic nerve to move, since any physical activity increases the pain, while it can be of a different nature:
- Increasing pain with gradual relief
- Sharp periodic pain
- Stable aching pain that gets worse from time to time
- How to relieve pain?
The most effective way to prevent sciatic nerve inflammation and relieve pain is massage. Such a procedure, if performed regularly, will help reduce pain, as well as get rid of pinching.
In our salon, two types of sciatic nerve massage are performed – acupressure and general massage of the whole body. During acupressure, the procedure covers only certain areas of the body in which the pain is concentrated. This method is most effective in treating entrapment. With the help of a general massage, the specialist determines the level of pain that the client experiences, their foci, movements with which to massage and the level of stress on the muscles. Therefore, the most effective is an integrated approach to solving the problem with conducting both general and acupressure massage.
If you do not consult a specialist in time after detecting a pinched sciatic nerve, there are risks of sciatica. This is the name of the second stage of inflammation, after the onset of which, a specialist examination is required. In this case, in addition to acute pain, displacement of the vertebrae can be observed.
