Sciatica: What Causes It and How to Get Lasting Sciatic Pain Relief?

sciatica causesTechnically, sciatica is a symptom of a condition – not a condition in and of itself. The most common definition is “pain running down the back of the leg.” Because it is only a symptom, you will need to seek a qualified health care professional to get properly diagnosed. Then you can begin treatment for that condition.

What causes Sciatica?

Loading the player...

To understand what causes sciatica, you must understand what it was that caused your condition to develop in the first place. For example, you may discover that you have sciatica because of a herniated disc. But in order to get relief, it is equally important to know why your disc became herniated.

This is something that most traditional treatments fail to address, which is why people can suffer for years on end without relief. The Muscle Balance Therapy™ approach considers the root cause of any of these conditions to be muscle imbalances. These muscle imbalances can have negative effects on your muscles, joint and posture, leading to something called “postural dysfunctions.”

There are four primary conditions that are responsible for sciatica nerve pain: Herniated Disc, Spinal Stenosis, Spondylolisthesis, and Piriformis Syndrome.

What are the most common sciatic treatments?

  • Cortisone injections
  • Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs)
  • Hot packs
  • Ultrasound
  • Electrical stimulation
  • Therapeutic exercises (ie. physical therapy)

Why do Traditional Treatments fail?

Most traditional treatments fail because they simply address the symptoms and fail to address the cause of the condition. Your condition – which ever of the 4 it may be – is a physical problem, and it will require a physical solution. There are no pills or injections that can create balance in your body.
