Do Not Reach For Painkillers Immediately! Try This For Sciatica Instead!

Sciatic pain nerve is the most painful thing ever. It starts lower in the spine and goes to the buttocks all the way down to the limb and foot too.

This limits the movement and strength in the legs.

This pain makes you stay in bed all the time or take Ibuprofen and similar meds.

Studies claimed 40% of people to have this issue and here are 8 natural cures for it.

Acupuncture

This method is alternative and means putting needles in some body parts to improve nerve work and energy levels.

It is felt right away and after few sessions the pain is removed. This method is really popular even for stopping smoking, migraines, stress and lymph flowing.

Chiropratic

This is great for spine health and removing pain too, also inflammation, fast healing, mobility.

Ice pack

To apply this on the painful area helps a lot. Or get a frozen towel too and wrap it around the skin. After 20 min the pain is soothed and after a few hours is gone.

Alternating in temperature

The ice packs are good but inflammation may still be present. Apply hot pack now or take a bath. This cold and hot switching makes the blood flow better and removes inflammation. Add Epsom in the bath too or some oils.

Yoga

You need to be active and not be sedentary even though there is pain. Mild yoga goes a long way. You get more mobility and better blood flow.

Massage

Deep massages are great. They reduce the inflammation and pain too. You can use oils along this, capsules or salves. Also elixirs, tinctures and tea with fresh leaves. Before you use natural cures, talk with a doctor first.
