Finally… A Way to Fix Your Sciatica

Back PainAre you tired of dealing with that annoying (sometimes brutal) low back pain that can send numbness and tingling into your legs?

Are you tired of not being able to sleep, stand, sit, play with your kids, go to work or do anything because it feels like you have a knife stabbing you in the back?

Are you sick of thinking you’re finally out of the woods only to be back in pain for no apparent reason?

Unfortunately, sciatica is misdiagnosed most of the time. That almost always leads to the wrong actions and worst of all … POOR RESULTS.

Sciatica is a low back problem that creates low back pain coupled with pain, numbness and tingling or other symptoms that refer down into the buttock, groin, and leg.

There are a variety of causes of sciatica that range from chronic muscle tightness to herniated discs to arthritis to more sinister causes that are actually medical emergencies.

In fact, there are so many different causes of sciatica that accurate diagnosis is often quite difficult, even with sophisticated diagnostic imaging.

MRI analysis and X Ray findings are often used to diagnose. Perhaps you know this from experience. Unfortunately, although these procedures can be helpful, they often lead to invasive procedures like surgery before more effective, conservative approaches are used.

If there is one rule to stick to when it comes to sciatica, it is to always try the most conservative approach first.

In my experience, regardless of the cause, almost every person with sciatica has these 3 things in common:

  1. Mechanical problems with the movement of their hips, low back and pelvis. You should be able to do a deep squat so that your buttock sits on the back of your calves and remain in this position for 10 minutes.
  2. Weak low back, hip, and pelvic muscles. You should be able to deadlift close to 2X your body weight.
  3. Too much inflammatory load in their bodies. Typical North American diets are very inflammatory and contribute to sciatica and the pain associated with it.

Solving your sciatica problem for good will take time and consistent effort, but it’s SO worth it!

By correcting the underlying structural and mechanical problems, improving mobility, and creating a plan for adequate strength and proper nutrition, the vast majority of people will resolve their sciatica.
