Oh, my sciatica! What a pain in the…

What do we do about it? First, tell me your symptoms. Does the pain shoot down the side of your leg? Maybe your hip hurts a bit. Maybe your hip hurts so badly you limp. I see this all the time. Sciatica is a symptom of another problem. Different causes of sciatica are:

Slipped disk
Piriformis Syndrome
Pelvic injury or fracture

Basically you have pain, weakness, numbness or tingling in the leg. It may hurt in the calf and the bottom of the foot. Bottom line? It hurts!

So what DO we do? Just lie down and let me take care of it.  🙂   I’ll have you lay face down on the massage table under a nice sheet. We start with compression on your hip muscles. You see, the sciatic nerve is located deep in the pelvis. Sometimes the muscles will get really tight and aggravate the sciatic nerve. That’s when you’ll feel these symptoms.

So I push and knead one hip. The compression continues down the back of your leg in a slow, orderly rhythm. The knee gets rotated out and the knee bent. I push and pull the bent leg while pushing on the hip. While resting the leg I release three trigger points in the hip. This takes about 3-5 minutes. After the trigger points the whole leg, hip and foot gets a massage. Kneading, pushing and pulling on the larger muscles of the upper leg. I repeat the same steps on the other leg. All this takes about 30 minutes.

Kick that pain in the tush in about 30 minutes. Perfect pain relief in a short amount of time. Cost effective, time effective. I have had several people INSTANTLY feel better. Others feel relief in about 3 sessions.

What have we learned?

That pain in your leg could actually be caused by a pain in your tush.
Relief can be felt in as little as 30 minutes.
