Treat Yo’Self to Sciatica Pain Relief | Chiropractor for Nerve Pain in Belmar, NJ
Hi welcome, my name is Alison Dominic, I’m the massage therapist here at Dr. Jodi Kinney’s office. Today we are going to be talking about some nerve issues and how to achieve nerve pain relief, specifically, the sciatic nerve which can cause some pain down your leg.
Where is Sciatica Coming From?
This is the sciatic nerve here runs from your lower spine, down the leg and oftentimes, what I see is a compression of the Piriformis muscle also called Piriformis syndrome, which can be causing sciatic pain. So the Piriformis muscle runs from your lower back out towards your leg, and when it’s compressed, it causes us major problems. So when I see clients with this issue, I like to do massage work on their lower back to kind of release their lower spine. I will also do some legwork. So because the leg can be pulling on on the hip, I do lots of leg work on you and then we’ll get right into the Piriformis which runs from your lower spine toward your leg, and it’s a diagonal muscle. So we’ll work deep into that muscle to try to release the pressure that is compressing the nerve and the sciatic nerve is not comfortable. You’ll feel feel pain in your buttocks, it’ll run down your leg, but with adjustments and massage, we can really help treat this symptom. So if you’d like to come into the office, get an adjustment and have a massage, you could do them together here!
