A sharp, searing pain. A dull put persistent ache. Occasional numbness. Sciatica can make itself known in a great many ways – but one thing holds true. It disrupts your life.
Three Steps to Combat Sciatica
Sciatica is tricky; it can be difficult to self-diagnose because its symptoms are so varied from patient to patient. A doctor or chiropractor can help you determine the cause of your pain, but you can do this upfront work at home:
- Listen to your body. If you feel a pain or ache that extends from your lower back down through your lower body, it’s time to see a specialist.
- Rethink your habits. Sciatica is most often seen in patients who lift heavy loads, spend a lot of time sitting, or who are overweight. If you have sciatica, it’s important to consider what lifestyle changes you can make.
- Be persistent. Sciatica doesn’t go away overnight. It takes professional help and dedication on the part of the patient. But together, you can combat the issue for good.
