Sciatica Nerve Pain

Results focused non-invasive solutions to getting out of pain and living your best life!


Sciatica is pain that radiates along the sciatic nerve, which runs from the lower back through the hips and buttocks and down both legs. In most cases, sciatica only affects one side of your body.

Sciatic pain is often caused by a herniated disk, bone spur on the spine or when narrowing of the spine compresses the nerve. As a result, individuals experience pain and often numbness in one or both legs.

Sciatic pain can vary dramatically from a subtle ache to excruciating pain. In some cases, it can feel like an electric shock. Sneezing and coughing can aggravate symptoms, as can prolonged sitting. Usually, symptoms are limited to one side of your body.

There may also be numbness, tingling, or muscle weakness in the affected leg or foot. It is possible that one part of your leg is in pain and the other part is numb.

Several medical conditions can cause sciatica; however, an estimated 90 percent of cases are caused by herniated (slipped) disks. The spinal column consists of three parts:

  • Disk
  • Vertebrae
  • Nerves

Disks are made of cartilage, a strong and resilient material. The flexibility of the spine is facilitated by cartilage, which acts as a cushion between the vertebrae. Herniated disks occur when a disk is pushed out of place, exerting pressure on the sciatic nerve. Less common causes include infection, lumbar spinal stenosis and tumors within the spine.

There are several risk factors for sciatica, including:
  • The most common causes of sciatica are changes in the spine caused by aging, such as herniated disks and bone spurs.
  • Extra body weight contributes to sciatica by putting increased stress on the spine.
  • Working in a job that involves lifting heavy loads or driving a car for long periods might contribute to sciatica, but the link has not been proven conclusively.
  • The likelihood of developing sciatica is higher for those who sit for long periods or with a sedentary lifestyle.
  • Diabetes puts you at greater risk of nerve damage since it alters the way your body uses blood sugar.

Sciatic Nerve Pain Treatment

Acousana therapy is a highly effective, non-invasive sciatic nerve treatment. This approach to treating mild to severe sciatica has success rates over 86%.

Acousana utilizes patented SoftWave® technology to stimulate your body’s natural healing response by increasing blood flow by up to 300%, quickly reducing inflammation and therefore, offering sciatica pain relief.

Acousana therapy is a sciatica pain treatment that uses patented electrohydraulic SoftWaves® that are delivered through the skin using ultrasound gel. The SoftWaves trigger a natural biological response which initiates a healing process by increasing blood flow and improving circulation.

The SoftWaves “fool” the body into thinking that “damage” has occurred, when in reality, no damage has taken place. This response initiates your body’s natural self-repair process by reducing inflammation and thereby providing sciatica relief.

Reclining Pigeon Pose

The pigeon pose is a common yoga pose. It helps to open the hips. The stretch can be done more than one way. Initially, the reclining pigeon pose will be used as a starting position.

  1. As you lie on your back, bring your right leg into a right angle. Put your hands behind your thigh and lock your fingers.
  2. Raise your left leg and place your right ankle over your left knee.
  3. Hold the position. A stretch like this helps loosen the tiny piriformis muscle, which can be inflamed and press against the sciatic nerve, causing pain.
  4. Repeat with the other leg.

Knee To Opposite Shoulder

Simple stretches like this decrease sciatica pain by loosening inflamed muscles that press against your sciatic nerve.

  1. You should lie on your back with your legs extended and your feet flexed upward.
  2. Wrap your hands around your right knee and bend your right leg.
  3. Pull your right leg towards your left shoulder. Continue holding it there for 30 seconds. Remember not to pull your knees further than is comfortable. You should feel a relief in your muscles, not pain.
  4. Return your knee to the beginning position.
  5. Perform three repetitions, then switch legs.
