Our next Stretch that is good for relieving Sciatica and Back Pain is the Lunge. Lunges are very simple to do, and they are great because they strengthen your quads and hamstrings while also helping with your balance. This is important because the stronger these muscles are, the less likely you are to use your back when you lift objects, thus helping to prevent and relieve sciatica and back pain!
We have discussed previously how most of society in the United States has become a culture of sitting, and how for very many people, sitting is a requirement. Whether it be sitting at work, or sitting in a car or train to get to work, or sitting at home to relax, people are sitting way more than they ever have before. And the fact that people are sitting so much more is one of the main reasons for the dramatic increase in the number of cases of back, neck, and sciatica pain in such a short amount of time.

The next Diet Tip of foods that can help with the health of your back is Berries. In one of our previous tips we discussed why Cherries are a great food for your back; and while cherries and berries are not related (cherries are related to plums, peaches, and almonds), berries are also a great food because they contain some of the same substances that cherries do which can help to improve your back health.
