Stretch Tip Of The Week Episode #10
Sciatic pain normally radiates from the low back to behind the thigh radiating down behind the knee and sometimes tingling and numbness down the leg. Sciatica maybe cause by bulging disc or herniated disc, accident, pregnancy or spinal infection. Most of the cases I worked on are normally trauma from a recent or an accident that happened sometime ago.
You can prevent Sciatica:
- Avoid activities that promote disc degeneration
- Exercise to strengthen the abdomen muscle to support the spine
- When lifting uses proper stand technique – always bending your knees before lifting
- Always be aware of you posture- make sure you are standing straight and try not to sit too long – take breaks
BE WELL! 🙂
