6 Tips to Relieve Sciatica Pain

6 Tips to Relieve Sciatica Pain

The nerve pain that comprises sciatica can significantly impede your ability to enjoy life, so it’s worth researching and learning as many options as you can to relieve your pain.
Below are 6 tips that you may not have heard before, all of which may contribute to sciatic pain reduction:

1. Reduce inflammation through nutrition

A diet rich in whole grains, natural foods, fruits, vegetables, nuts, fatty fish, such as salmon, and soluble and insoluble fiber can be effective in reducing inflammation. Curcumin (turmeric), ginger, green tea, and black tea are also potent sources of anti-inflammatory substances that help build up immunity and improve overall health.
Following this type of diet will help build the levels of anti-inflammatory substances in your body over time and may reduce the occurrence of sciatica in the long-term.

What to avoid while following an anti-inflammatory diet
When you choose to regularly consume anti-inflammatory foods, it is important to avoid or limit:

  • Inflammation causing foods, such as sugars, refined carbohydrates, trans fats, and hydrogenated oils
  • Smoking, which can lower the production of anti-inflammatory molecules and induce inflammation

It is advised to check with your doctor before making extensive dietary changes and to ensure that your diet does not interfere or interact with any current medications.

2. Build specific micronutrients

Supplements help build up micronutrients in your body, which may not be fully obtained through a regular diet. A few examples of important micronutrients include:

  • Magnesium
  • Vitamin D
  • Vitamin E
  • Vitamin B12
  • Vitamin B6
  • Zinc
  • Selenium
  • Fish oil (Omega-3 fatty acids)

These micronutrients help suppress inflammatory mediators and reduce the overall inflammatory processes. Vitamin E, zinc, and selenium act as antioxidants in the body. The B group of vitamins help improve nerve health and reduce sciatica. You can also take curcumin (turmeric) supplements if you don’t consume turmeric as a part of your daily diet.

3. Release your natural pain killers with massage

Massages can help you feel relaxed, release endorphins (your body’s natural hormones that reduce the perception of pain), improve blood circulation, and soothe sore spinal muscles.

  • A deep tissue massage can help restore the spine’s range of motion, improving its flexibility.
  • Knots, trigger points, or tension in the muscles can be kneaded out with manual therapy-a special form of medical-massage.
  • There are many forms of massage that can be beneficial, such as Shiatsu (a Japanese massage technique that utilises finger and palm pressure and stretching techniques).

Sciatica pain from poor posture, muscle strain, or fatigued musculature in the lower spine may be relieved effectively through these massages

4. Try mind-body techniques

You can use the power of your mind to lower your perception of sciatica pain. Mind-body techniques, which include deep breathing exercises, meditation, guided imagery, and cognitive behavioural therapy, can be helpful in relaxing your muscles and, to an extent, increasing your sense of control over the pain.

You may find that these techniques also help reduce anxiety and depression often associated with chronic pain.

5. Walk in a swimming pool

Water therapy exercises or even simply walking in waist-deep water can help improve nerve and muscle function in the lower body. The natural buoyancy, hydrostatic pressure, thermodynamics, hydrodynamic forces, and viscosity of water helps regulate the functioning of nerves and muscles, letting you exercise with less pain.

6. Spinal Disc Decompression (SDD)
