Do you experience tingling, aching or burning sensation in your lower back, buttock, hip or down the back of your leg?
A stretch that can relieve some causes of sciatic pain. Bowen Therapy sessions will most likely be needed in conjunction with this stretch to address the underlying cause.
If so, you could very well be experiencing sciatic nerve pain, also known as sciatica. Other possible symptoms of sciatic nerve impairment are weakness and numbness along the nerve pathway of the leg and foot.
The sciatic nerve is the thickest nerve in the body (about as thick as your pinkie). It originates in the lower back, runs through the buttock and down the back of the leg. Sciatic pain is caused when the sciatic nerve is compressed by one or more of the following:
- The piriformis muscle
- A slipped disc or spinal disc herniation
- Degenerative disc disease
- Spinal stenosis
- Pelvic injury or fracture
- Irritation of sciatic nerve during pregnancy
- Long-term habits e.g. sitting on your wallet or standing for long periods
If you are suffering from sciatic pain then Bowen Therapy may be able to help
Sciatic pain is very common, and along with low back pain, it is the most common ailment I see in my clinic. In the majority of these cases Bowen has been able to help.
Bowen Therapy is a gentle soft tissue therapy that initiates the body’s innate healing capacity.
