Sciatic nerve pain

Sciatic nerve pain can be one of the most excruciating conditions and it can seemingly strike anyone at any point in time. Whilst there is no broadly known reason why people suffer from sciatica nerve pain, if we take a closer look it can become clearer.

  • Why people do suffer from sciatica nerve pain? 
  • Can doctors and practitioners overlook the real underlying cause of sciatica nerve pain?
  • What you can do to eradicate and prevent sciatica nerve pain?

Postural imbalances are one of the number one causes of sciatica nerve pain and chronic lower back pain. However, these postural imbalances can at times be overlooked by the mainstream health system. Doctors send for scans to assess bulging discs; they prescribe medications to address inflammation whilst physical therapists and chiropractors all look to release tension in the lumbar spine.

Overlooking one of the main underlying causes of sciatica nerve pain leads to symptomatic treatment that can provide only short-term temporary relief for sciatica pain. Chronic sciatica patients get caught in a perpetual cycle of treatment that initial makes them feel better only for the pain to return due to the major postural muscles (predominantly the gluteus maximus muscles) lacking the strength and conditioning to support the hip and lower back.

In order to provide permanent relief for sciatica nerve pain, both the symptoms and the underlying cause need to be thoroughly addressed. Let’s now take a closer look at what postural imbalances are and how they result in people suffering from sciatica nerve pain.

Postural imbalances that lead to sciatica nerve pain 

For most people who find themselves at a desk all day, then headed home for some downtime on the couch in front of the TV, they are never using their major gluteal muscles and as a result they weaken over time. Even manual labourers are challenged to maintain glute strength from carrying out working in front of their bodies doing repetitive tasks all day. If the major muscle of the hip, the gluteus maximus loses conditioning, the deeper intrinsic muscles of the hip carry the burden, causing them to overload, tighten and contract. This results in the hip internally rotating which closes the gap where the sciatica nerve descends deep through the buttock region which frequently results in sciatica nerve pain. 

Eradicate the imbalances and you permanently eradicate the sciatic nerve pain

Symptomatic treatment for sciatica nerve pain is not enough. Tension deep in the hip affecting the muscles, joint and sciatic nerve needs to be addressed to provide relief and correct functioning.  The next approach is to address the weakness present in the major gluteal muscles, to take the load of the deep muscles of the hip that are overloaded, tight and internally rotating the hip.
