Sciatic nerve pain, or sciatica, is hard to mistake. It’s severe shooting pain that radiates from your lower back all the way down the back of your leg (typically only one leg).
The pain occurs when your sciatic nerve (the largest and longest nerve in your body) becomes compressed, which may be caused by bone spurs, a pinched nerve, spinal stenosis, pregnancy, or a herniated disc — among other causes.
Trigger points, or knots, in your legs (or elsewhere in your body, as I’ll explain shortly) are another common cause of sciatica pain. Trigger points are centers for irritation and inflammation in your muscles and nerves. When in the “active” phase, trigger points are very painful, although the pain may be “referred pain,” meaning it can be felt in seemingly unrelated parts of your body (hence the shooting pain down the back of your leg with sciatica).
In many cases sciatica pain will resolve on its own without treatment … if you can stand to wait that long (further, in some cases sciatica can lead to permanent nerve damage and is prone to reoccurring if you don’t treat it). If you have sciatica pain, there’s no reason to suffer. Try out trigger point therapy, which may end your pain in minutes by getting rid of your trigger points (as a bonus, you can do it at home!).
Getting Rid of Trigger Points at Home is Easy
If you have a troublesome trigger point that you suspect is the source of your sciatica pain, the Trigger Point Self-Treatment System, shown in the above video, will release and deactivate your trigger points, thus relieving the underlying cause of your pain.
What makes this system so valuable isn’t only that you can pressure massage your trigger points right in your own home (using your own body weight!) … it’s also the fact that this system allows you to identify trigger points you might not even know you have. The pain in your buttocks or down your leg could actually be due to a trigger point located in your lower back, for instance, and the Trigger Poi
nt Self-Treatment System will help you to determine that.
As you work the trigger point with this system, your body undergoes soft tissue release, allowing for increased blood flow. You’ll also have a reduction in muscle spasm and the breakup of scar tissue. Toxic metabolic wastes are also removed. Your body even undergoes a neurological release, reducing the pain signals to your brain and resetting your neuromuscular system to restore its proper function. Thus, everything will once again work the way it should.
In no time flat, your sciatica pain and related tenderness will be gone.
Don’t let sciatica pain sideline you again. Simply pop the included DVD in your player and follow along with your guidebook. You’ll learn how easy it is to locate and deactivate all your trigger points, putting you in control of your pain … and your pain relief … finally and for good.
