Sciatica Massage

When you’re experiencing sciatica-like symptoms in your lower back and glute areas, seek the advice of a medical professional to determine whether your symptoms are true sciatica or piriformis syndrome. In both cases, massage therapy can help alleviate pain in both the long-term and short-term.

About Sciatica Massage

Since true sciatica is typically the result of a herniated or degenerative disc, the medical community recommends surgery as the number one way to remedy the condition. Sciatica therapy is a relief for sciatica pain and is a specific massage for this ailment.

This massage alleviates pain and is personalized specifically to each individual's needs. Depending upon each body's needs I use different professional body techniques such as a combination of heat/ice, massage stretch therapy and myoskeletal alignment.

People with sciatica symptoms need to stay active, to continue exercising and stretching. If you stop all activity, the area is more prone to stiffening, possibly compressing the nerve even more and increasing your level of discomfort.

"A lot of people think that they have to have surgery right away if they feel sciatica type symptoms. But, what they’re feeling could actually just be the result of tight piriformis muscles that can be treated by massage therapy sessions that focus on the glutes and lower back areas." Sciatica massage therapy is an alternative solution to help alleviate the pain associated with both sciatica and piriformis syndrome.
