If you’ve got Sciatica Pain, stiffness, or an ache – it’s very tempting to think that it’s nothing or just a bit of stiffness that “everyone” your age suffers from…
There’s no obvious reason why it happened – but it doesn’t seem to be improving!
If that’s happening to you, you’re not alone – and we hear this all the time.
In fact, Sciatica Pain is THE most common problem that we see in our Physical Therapy Clinic in the Madison Area YMCA in beautiful Madison, NJ.
If You’re Currently Living With Sciatica Pain
You May Be Wondering What Can Cause It To Flare Up?
The most common culprit for Sciatica pain is having poor posture. Most often this is when you are rounding your lower back in a relaxed position like sitting.
Another common cause of flaring up Sciatica pain is weight gain. The more weight you have on your body, the more pressure you are putting on your spine. Weight loss is a very common tip when it comes to Sciatica pain, but we understand that is easier said than done when going to exercise can cause more discomfort.
Unfortunately, a very common thing we see when we work with someone on their exercise plan is that they tend to improperly lift weights. If you are going to lift heavy weights while suffering from Sciatica pain, you must make sure you have the proper form (Neutral Spine). Also, when picking up heavy weights off the ground or even lifting a heavyweight bring your attention to your legs, so you do not use your back to lift.
The Wrong Shoes
The most common shoes that cause Sciatica pain are high heels. High heels force weight distribution to the front of your feet. In order to compensate, it is normal to push your pelvis and hips forward. This tends to cause stress to your hamstrings and possible flare up your Sciatica pain.
Having a Sciatica Assessment from a Doctor of Physical Therapy can help you identify weak points or areas unique to you needing attention, and then developing a plan to relieve your pain.
A Sciatica Assessment with a Physical Therapist can:
- Help you understand where your shoulder pain is coming from
- Prevent devastating injury
- Get you back to your active lifestyle
- Give you the tools you need to be your best
