What Causes Sciatica?

Sciatica is caused the irritation of the sciatic nerve. People suffer from different pain levels, ranging in severity from niggling paint to debilitating. Should you be experiencing pain in your back, hips or legs and it isn’t easing then you need to seek professional help. Sciatica symptoms will typically settle within 4-6 weeks but can persist longer.

  • Local heat (ensuring that the skin is protected) may relieve pain and muscle spasm.
  • A small firm cushion between the knees when sleeping on the side, or several firm pillows propping up the knees when lying on the back, may ease symptoms.
  • Try to stay active, resume normal activities, and return to work as soon as possible.
  • Bed rest is not recommended. Normal movements may produce some pain which should not be harmful if activities are resumed gradually and as tolerated.
  • You don’t need to be pain-free before returning to normal activities or work. Work adjustments can make an early return to work possible; this may be arranged by an Occupational Health department if available.
  • Keeping as active as possible and exercising regularly is important to reduce the risk of recurrence.
