This week's Sciatica Stretch is the Hamstring Foam Roll Massage! Hamstrings can become extremely tight while compensating for one’s posture, and this can often place a severe strain on the lower back. This stretch will promote more blood flow to the area to increase the healing. It also increases extensibility of the hamstring muscle.
Most people stand at their sinks several times a day for some reason, whether it be to brush or floss your teeth, wash dishes, prepare meals, or maybe something else. Because this is such a common practice, it should not come as a surprise that it is a major cause of back pain! Two of the complaints we hear the most from people suffering with back pain are: "Whenever I brush my teeth, my back always starts hurting!" and "Just washing dishes for 10 minutes makes my back pain feel excruciating!" This is because when many people do these simple everyday tasks, they are doing them wrong!
At 92 years of age Henry Meyer had a Bulging disc and Degenerative Disc disease. He could barely walk and was in extreme pain. He had tried many treatments for his pain but they were either ineffective or ended up making him feel worse, and surgery was not an option because of his age. His doctors gave him pain medication and told him that all that could be done was to take the pills and try to live with the pain. But due to the pain medication, Henry ended up in the hospital and nearly died. He had all but given up, but fortunately he found out about the Illinois Back Institute.
We previously discussed in Parts One and Two the five most common causes of Sciatica. It is important that everyone fully understands what these causes are, because the key to treating Sciatica is to identify the causes so that they can be properly addressed and eliminated. This video is a quick recap of those causes, which may help to clarify what we have been discussing.
