You're just waiting for it to hit again-that sharp, stabbing electrical sensation that starts in your lower back and runs down your leg. The medical term is sciatica; the everyday reality is pain. First, you have to understand the problem. What is sciatica, and how did you get it? Then, you have to explore treatment options. Many sciatica sufferers have not found conventional treatment methods alone to be effective. Too many live with the burning and aching symptoms of this condition. Here's the good news: You don't have to tolerate the pain any more.
The authors of Relieving Sciatica spell it all out for you-everything you need to know to get on the road to relief. In Part I, they clearly define sciatica, its causes, and its symptoms. Conventional treatment options are summarized, and the benefits of a combination treatment program-one that uses both conventional and complementary medicine-are discussed. Complementary care approaches are important elements in treatment; they encourage a more positive state of mind, better posture, healthier movement patterns, improved spinal alignment, and stress management. So Part II offers detailed information on over fifteen complementary care options.
Have you considered massage as a therapeutic treatment? Did you know that the smooth movements of tai chi may reduce the pain? Are you familiar with such helpful choices as foot reflexology, myotherapy, and qigong? For each approach, information is included on how the technique specifically targets sciatica, as well as on relevant research, cost and duration of treatment, health insurance coverage, practitioner credentials, and more. Where applicable, effective at-home techniques are described. Throughout, clever tips suggest safer ways to perform everyday activities, from lifting heavy laundry bags to properly positioning the driver's seat in your car. If you suffer from sciatica, Relieving Sciatica is your guide to a better life. Through the concise information provided in this trustworthy reference, you will be able to better understand, control, and defeat the pain.
