When a person experiences back pain of some sort, one of the most simple ways of treating it is to apply heat or ice to the injured area. It can be very effective, and it is very easy for anyone to do at home. However, it is also one of the most misunderstood therapies in back pain treatment, because many people do not know when it is best to use ice instead of a heating pad, and vice versa.

The hip flexor is made up of two muscles called the illiacus and psoas muscles, and these two collectively are called the iliopsoas muscle. These muscles are attached to the lumbar spine and pelvis. Prolonged sitting increases the tightness in the hip flexor muscles, and if those muscles are tight it will alter body mechanics and posture which can affect your sciatica pain. Therefore, increased flexibility of the iliopsoas muscle is extremely important in order to decrease the severity of sciatica and lower back pain symptoms.
