In the News: Massage Benefits Sciatic Nerve Pain
We were pleased to see the article in the Cincinnati Herald, “Benefits of massage on sciatic nerve pain.” The short article outlines some ways massage therapy has helped people suffering from sciatic nerve pain (aka: sciatica). It also has some suggestions for self-massage care using a tennis ball.
Sciatica & Sciatic Nerve Pain
Sciatic pain & sciatica can be caused by many things. Herniated discs, pelvic imbalances, tight gluteals or poor posture are the most common culprits. The pain can be felt in the gluteals or down your legs and flare-ups can be extremely painful. To learn more about sciatic nerve pain, visit our injury massage page.
At Boulder Therapeutics, we have been working with sciatic nerve pain since 1999. Deep tissue massage and advanced manual therapies like myofascial release, trigger point therapy and active muscle energy techniques are valuable techniques to reduce and resolve this painful condition. We also recommend getting up from your desk (or any seated position) throughout the day to take pressure off your gluteal muscles, to strengthen you hip/pelvic muscles and to stretch and foam roll often.
Feel free to contact us with any questions.
