Sciatica is a difficult and painful condition brought on by irritation in the sciatic nerve which can send pain down to the feet. It causes a sharp and burning pain and even numbness in the feet accompanied by difficulty moving and pain when standing or sitting. The pain usually goes down one foot, and is more intense in the limb than the back. It also intensifies when standing or sitting for a prolonged period and is more “active” overnight.
For decades, doctors have been treating sciatica with painkillers and other medications. These pills, however, come with a host of side-effects and do nothing more than mask the pain. Recently, more and more people have been improving their symptoms with the help of a few exercises which work better than pills and can relieve the inflammation and irritation in the sciatic nerve.
