Massage For Sciatica

Sciatica Massage At Home: An Option Worth Considering

Massage for Sciatica (see Wikipedia definition here and the WebMD Sciaitica Picture Slideshow here) has been found, in both anecdotal accounts of massage clients, as well as in controlled studies, to help with sciatic pain. Bodywork treatments for sciatica, including various modalities of Therapeutic Massage, can have a positive impact on sciatica relief. Massage Therapy for Sciatica may be done right in your own home, without the need to sit in a car traveling to and from the spa, an activity that often exacerbates sciatic pain in many sufferers.

Treating sciatica with massage at your home is worth investigating, especially if your sciatica keeps you from enjoying life, sleeping deeply, or working at your full focus. Sciatic Pain can be a significant distraction, and can render a sufferer a mere shell of their former self. Dealing with the pain of chronic sciatica can be draining, mentally as well as physically. Therapeutic Massage Sciatica Treatments At Home are an effective means of working your way back to a pain-free life, productive and enjoyable.

Sciatica Massage is less invasive than surgery, which is only necessary in a small percentage of sciatica cases, according to medical statistics. For many individuals, Sciatica Massage Therapy helps alleviate the torturous pain of sciatica. Massage For Sciatica helps to relieve sciatica, whether the sciatic pain is caused by pregnancy, spinal disc herniations, spinal stenosis, Piriformis syndrome, overuse, or simply failing to stretch before exercising or walking. Sciatica Massage Treatment involves working on the muscles and connective tissues surrounding the sciatica nerves with the goal of aiding the muscles in becoming less tight, permitting the sciatic nerves to travel through the tissues without being pinched so severely.

What Is Sciatica?

The sciatic nerves (ischiadic nerves) are thicker and longer than any other nerve in the human body, emanating from the sacrum on either side, running down the lower buttocks to the bottom of the legs. Sciatic Pain is caused by compression of one of the five nerve roots in the lower back, or by compression of the sciatic nerve. Only a physician is qualified to determine the cause of Sciatica, and recurring or chronic sciatic pain should be thoroughly investigated.

If you've ever suffered with sciatic pain, you know how dreadfully painful the condition can be. The discomfort experienced by many sciatica sufferers is known to be excruciating, with severe pain radiating down the entire length of the sciatic nerve, causing burning, shooting or sharp pain, and numbness from the buttocks down the leg. Sciatica Massage can help this. Depending on the underlying cause of a sufferer's sciatic pain, treating sciatica with massage can lessen pain, or in some cases even help alleviate the cause of sciatica.

There are two main classifications of Sciatic Pain: axial and appendicular. Axial sciatica is caused by a compression of the nerve roots at the area referred to as the intervertebral foramina, of the vertabrae marked L1 through S3. If you care to look up an anatomy illustration to get a better idea of what your Sciatia is about in visual terms, the vertabrae labels should be helpful. Appendicular sciatic pain arises from a condition referred to as 'nerve entrapment', and often occurs far from the nerve roots, referring pain and numbness down along the buttocks, sometimes all the way down to the back of the lower leg.

Massage Treatment for Sciatica: Studies Confirm Positive Results

Massage For Sciatica has been shown in studies to help with pain relief. Hernandez-Reif, M., Field, T., Krasnegor, J., & Theakston, H. (2001) determined, through a controlled study, that lower back pain was lessened, and range of motion increased by sessions of Sciatica Massage. (International Journal of Neuroscience, 106, 131-145). Study participants receiving Massage Treatments For Sciatica reported decreased anxiety and depression, lessened pain, and improved sleep, compared to the control group relying solely on relaxation techniques.

The authors of another important study on the effects of Sciatica Massage reached similar conclusions. In the case study entitled, ‘Treatment of Sciatica with Electro-Acupuncture and Tuina Massage: A Case Study', Yan Lu, DAOM, LAC, concluded that Tuina Massage as a component of an acupuncture session, can help with sciatica due to compression on the sciatic nerve by piriformis muscle and SI ligaments. While this case study does not carry the weight of carefully controlled studies on the effects of Sciatica Massage, it does support the same general conclusions. Case studies are not without any worth.

Sciatica And Massage: What You Should Know Before Booking A Session

While all Nationally Certified and State Licensed Therapeutic Massage practitioners should be able to help you with sciatica, you may want to find a therapist who has experience working with clients suffering from Sciatic Pain. While classroom learning prepared the student for encountering sciatica, it is the many hours of practical hands-on experience that makes the difference between an effective Sciatica Massage session and one that does not help quite so much.

Ask the Massage Therapist questions before starting a new course of Therapeutic Sciatica Massage. It is not rude or poor form to inquire how many Sciatica clients a prospective therapist has worked on. Neither is it unacceptable to ask about the clients' outcome with Sciatica Massage. While Massage For Sciatica is clearly a good choice for many, the experience and physiological knowledge of the practitioner can make all the difference.
