to you, look in the description box below. What is Sciatica?. To fully understand sciatica and its effects
on the body, one would need to know its roots and where this condition develops from. Sciatica develops from the Sciatic Nerve. The Sciatic Nerve which is regarded as the
largest nerve in the entire body is located at the downside of the body system, connecting
from the lower hips through the thighs and feet. This nerve is in charge of sending sensations
from the hips down to the foot thus making it an important part of locomotion amongst
other things. Sciatica is the inflammation of the sciatic
nerve leading to pain and other unpleasant conditions. It could be as a result of injury, skeletal
disorders, and several other conditions. It’s symptoms include pain and numbness in
the lower region of the body, which includes hips, thighs and legs . To overcome this condition, there are several
techniques or methods that can be employed. It could be natural, medicinal or even the
use of herbs and in severe cases surgery. Sciatica is an unpleasant condition that affects
the overall health of the body system and should be given proper attention. Causes Of Sciatica. Sciatica is caused by the compression and
inflammation of the sciatic nerve. � Heinated Disc. Although sciatica could be as a result of
several other health conditions or injuries, its major cause is the displacement of the
disc, which acts as a cushion between the spinal nerves and the vertebrae. To further explain this condition; the spinal
canal consists of the spinal nerves(main organ), the vertebrae which act as a protector of
the nerves and the disks which acts as cushions between both previously mentioned parts. It is this cushion that prevents the vertebrae
and other bony structures from compressing or pressuring the nerves and when it is displaced
it could lead to sciatica. � Lumbar Spinal Stenosis. Lumbar spinal Stenosis is one of the conditions
that leads to sciatica. This condition is characterized by shrinking
of the spinal canal, thus resulting in pressure on the nerves and pain. Lumbar spinal Stenosis is often developed
as aging occurs due to body changes and degradation, and so it is more common among the elderly. Although, this condition can also be developed
at a young age due to injuries, stunted growth, and other factors. Some people are also born with lumbar spinal
Stenosis. � Spinal Tumors. One of the major causes of sciatica is the
development of tumors in the spine area. It could be located along the canal, at the
site of the nerves or near the bones and discs that surround the nerves. � Cauda Equina Syndrome. Of all the causes of sciatica, this is the
most serious and severe as it could lead to permanent paralysis and damage of the spinal
nerves if surgical treatment is not done immediately. The Cauda Equina Syndrome is a condition where
there is intense pressuring or compression of the nerves located at the root of the spinal
canal. These nerves are responsible for sending information
to the lower part of the body which consists of the thighs, legs, foot and all other parts. Cauda Equida Syndrome (CES) is usually as
a result of fatally displaced or damaged disc, intense shrinking of the spinal canal or any
other severe spinal tumors or injuries. This condition should be treated immediately
to avoid permanent damage, and ultimately loss of locomotion. Symptoms Of Sciatica. � Pain in lower body parts. � Lower body muscle numbness. � Leg weakness. � Burning sensation on legs. Sciatica Treatment At Home. � Exercise. Although this may sound counterproductive
due to the nature of the condition, exercise is one of the best ways to ease pain from
sciatica and prevent aggravation of its symptoms. Gentle exercises which involve stretching
help increase the flexibility of the spine and prevent compression. Another factor which makes exercise very helpful
in treating sciatica is that these activities stimulate the production of endorphins, thus
relieving pain temporarily. � Heat and Cold Compress. The heat and ice treatment technique is one
that has been used for relieving pain from sciatica for years, and it has been found
to be very effective. The process which involves alternating the
use of ice packs and hot water helps reduce inflammation and speed up healing simultaneously. To use this technique, ice packs should be
put on the area where the pain is being felt. The function of the ice pack is to reduce
inflammation. After a while heat should be applied to the
same area as this boosts blood flow in the area thus speeding up the rate of healing. It is, however, important to ensure that the
skin is protected while using the heat technique to prevent damage. � Posture Adjustment. Sometimes, sciatica may not be as a result
of an underlying health condition but basic issues such as the wrong posture which leads
to excess and partial pressure on some parts, and this includes the lumbar region. The constant rotation of posture helps keep
the pressure, particularly that of body weight from being on a particular area for too long. Also ensuring proper posture helps to keep
the body in shape and prevent other long-term health and body defects that may occur. � NSAIDS. NSAIDS is an acronym for Non-steroidal Anti-inflammatory
Drugs, and they are federally approved drugs which have been certified to be capable of
easing pain and reversing inflammation without posing any serious long-term health consequences,
as long as they are used with caution. These drugs can be gotten from local pharmacies
or through prescriptions and are very effective in stopping the pain in several parts of the
body, and that includes those of the spine. It is however important not to rely on the
use of these drugs completely, and to employ the use of other treatment methods to avoid
problems associated with drug abuse and addiction. Herbal Remedies For Sciatica. � Turmeric. Turmeric is one of the best spice for treating
inflammations in several parts of the body, be it internal or external and is very effective. This spice has a very strong and potent anti-inflammatory
properties which helps in relieving pain and other symptoms of sciatica. Turmeric can be used to make herbal teas for
consumption or used in preparing meals. It can also be used as a paste to rub on inflamed
areas. � Garlic. The use of garlic in treating sciatica is
similar to that of turmeric as its main abilities lie in its anti-inflammatory properties. Garlic can be consumed raw, used to make herbal
teas and also used as a spice in meals. Apart from its ability to reduce inflammation,
garlic also offers several other health benefits to the body of which one is detoxification. � St. John Wort. St. John Wort is a highly medicinal plant
that is characterized by its yellow and star-shaped appearance. This plant which is well known for its high
antidepressant, anti-inflammatory and antibacterial nature. It can be prepared and consumed in a variety
of ways and can be used to treat several disorders and ailment. The oil, which is an extract from this plant
can be used to treat sciatica by applying it to the region which pain is noticed. It helps reduce inflammation there. � Jamaican Dogwood. This is another medicinal herb that has been
used for the treatment of several infections and disorders for centuries. The main ingredient which is the bark of the
dogwood tree helps reduce inflammation and acts as an antidepressant. This herb is also very effective in reversing
the symptoms of sciatica. Sciatica Treatment Exercises. � Spinal stretch. Sciatica is caused by compression of the spinal
canal which consists of the vertebrae thus leading to excess pressure on nerves. This exercise helps increase the flexibility
and opens up the spinal canal to give more space. 1. Take a seat on the ground with your legs clearly
spread out and keep your feet perpendicular to the ground. 2. Raise your left knee while keeping your foot
flat on the ground, and make sure your leg stays on the outside of the other foot. 3. While keeping your left knee upright and your
foot fixed on the floor, place your right elbow on the left knee and rotate in the direction
of your left knee. This helps to stretch the lumbar area and
the spine. 4. Turn as far as you can, and then hold on for
30 seconds, take a break and repeat this exercise 4 times before switching sides and repeating
the whole process again. � Sitting Pigeon Pose Exercise. 1. Take a seat on the ground, keeping your waist
perpendicular to the ground, your legs completely stretched and your feet facing up. 2. Bend your right leg, while keeping the other
parts completely fixed on the ground. After assuming this position, place your right
ankle on your left knee. 3. While keeping your buttocks, thighs, and legs
completely fixed on the ground, take a lean and try to close the distance between your
chest and thighs. Go as close as you can and hold this position
for a few seconds. 4. Hold on to this position for 30 seconds. 5. Rest for a few minutes and repeat the exercise
on the other side of your body. � Horizontal pigeon pose. 1. Take a horizontal position on the ground,
with your legs and hands fully stretched. 2. Raise the left knee, keeping a space between
the legs and your thighs. 3. Using your hands, reach underneath the thighs
and use them to grab one another, softly pulling back on your thighs. 4. Raise the right leg while putting your left
ankle on the head of the right knee. 5. Keep to that position for a few seconds. 6. Repeat the process using your other leg. � Hamstring Stretch. 1. Take a stand with your body fully relaxed,
do not keep on any heavy weight or dress. 2. Raise your right leg and place it on a surface
higher than your normal foot level. This could be a pack of books, plastic, stairs
or any useful tool that will guarantee a higher elevation of the foot. 3. While keeping your right knee elevated, take
a lean moving toward your right knee, while making sure your left foot is fixed on the
ground and your left leg straight. 4. While still maintaining the leaning position,
push your hip forward and backward to stretch it. 5. Maintain the position for a few seconds, and
repeat the exercise with the other legs raised and the body parts alternated. Sciatica Surgical Treatment. Sciatica is often treated naturally, with
exercises, meditations, herbal treatment and other alternatives but in some cases where
the condition is very severe, such as spinal stenosis, the use of surgical treatment may
be advised. There are two major types of surgical treatment
for Sciatica. 1. Discectomy. This is a surgical procedure whereby an incision
is made, and the heinated or displaced disc is operated on and removed to stop compressions
of the sciatic nerve. It can also be referred to as microdiscectomy
but in that case, very tiny incisions are made and the use of magnifications is used. The main purpose of microdiscectomy rather
than the regular discectomy procedure is that it allows faster healing. 2. Laminectomy. One of the major structures which protect
the spinal nerve and canal from damage or compressions is the lamina. Sometimes, this protective structure can be
removed completely or partially to reduce the symptoms of sciatica. A case where the lamina is completely removed
is known as laminectomy, but its partial removal is laminotomy. Are you battling sciatica?. Have you tried any of the treatment options

  5. Great channel and great tips. I had sciatica due to child birth where my water wouldn't break and the nurses kept forgetting to call the doctor who was 20 minutes away and the pressure on my lower back smashed a disc. I didn't realize it until as my body got back to normal, the pain kept getting worse. My dad was a Chiropractor and a Naturopathic Doctor. He took X-rays and found the smashed disc in my low back which looked like mush. He had me take Trace Minerals and Manganese 3 time a day until it was healed and regenerated which took a year. The pain was so bad that it was hard to sit, stand or lay down for any length of time so I had to take an NSAID to dull the pain to get through the day and night. It gradually got better until by a year it had healed and we took another X-ray and it had regenerated. I have not had pain again and that was over 40 years ago. The body can heal itself if we give it what it needs.
