Alleviate Sciatica Pain with Foam Rolling offers the benefits of a full lower body massage that you can perform from home.
If you’re a runner, avid walker, yogi, or gym enthusiast, you’ve likely dealt with the discomfort that comes with tight hamstrings, calves, and hip flexors. Repetitive movements, including sitting and standing, can also cause tightness in the piriformis muscle. The piriformis muscle extends from the pelvis through the glute and into the hip joint. As these major muscle groups tighten from overuse, they can put pressure on the sciatic nerve.
What is Sciatica?
Sciatica refers to the deep pain that radiates from your low back through your glutes and into the back of your thigh. Many people experience sciatica pain all the way down to their feet. Since it affects most of your lower body, sciatica pain can be debilitating.
What can I do about it?
Getting a massage is helpful in relieving built-up muscle tension and loosening hardened fascia. But, getting regular massages can get expensive! Using a Foam Roller offers many of the same myofascial release benefits as a manual massage. Loosening muscle tension and releasing fascia in the lower body, can help keep pressure off the sciatic nerve.
In this 12-minute video, you’ll learn how to use your foam roller to release muscle tightness and tension, while also breaking up any built up fascia. In this video, I’m using the Gaiam Restore 18″ Muscle Therapy Foam Roller. Looking for a foam roller? Use my special Yogasteya Discount Code to receive 20% off your next Gaiam purchase!
