Mild Exercises that Can Help Back Pain Due to Sciatica

Many people are seeking to find natural answers for sciatica and back pain instead of constantly taking medication. While medicine can help temporarily, the back pain is still lurking in the background, waiting until the medicine wears off, to show up again.

At Schrier Family Chiropractic, we strive to help patients by correcting the underlying cause of back pain. This is often a misalignment in the upper neck vertebrae. The body compensates for this problem by shifting the bones, muscles, and tissue of the neck and back, leading to lower back pain. By correcting this misalignment through a gentle method, many patients see a great improvement in symptoms.

One thing that a person can do at home if he or she is suffering from sciatica is to do some mild stretching exercises. Of course, it is a good idea to check with me before performing these exercises to make sure they are right for you.

Stretching Exercises for Back Pain

These stretches will reduce pressure on the sciatic nerve and increase blood flow, helping the body to heal. By doing these stretches in combination with seeking the care of an upper cervical chiropractor, back pain should soon become a thing of the past.
