Step away from the medicine cabinet and into natural solutions for your sciatic nerve pain! Try these three easy (and drug-free) methods for managing sciatica that do not involve prescription pain pills.
While we know that many patients who suffer from sciatica may need intervention of conservative or aggressive manner, we also encourage our patients to approach their complaints including sciatica more holistically.
Remember, your health is a triad of your (1) emotional or mental wellbeing, (2) your physical wellbeing and (3) your chemical wellbeing. Consider that while your condition may be a representation of only one area of your health being dysfunctional, it’s almost inevitable for the other components not to be affected.
So regardless of self-managing your condition, needing your Chiropractor or physiotherapist to help you with your recovery or giving in to needing medication or even undertaking surgical intervention, always approach your recovery road in a holistic way:
Consider your stressors. Many low back issues can be related to your emotional issues. Take inventory of your emotional well-being and see if you can pinpoint any areas of your life that are making you feel unsupported or stressed.
Stay active. As much as you may want to sit or rest as a result of sciatic nerve pain, make sure you’re attempting regular walks or exercise each day. Too much rest can actually result in weaker muscles and even more sciatic pain.
Good nutrition. It’s amazing how you can assist your condition with the right nutrients. There are many natural supplements and formulations which have been seen to be extremely effective with nerve pain, low back pain or inflammation.
