Sciatica can get really painful and can make standing unbearable. Sciatica pain can interfere with your everyday activities and leave you exhausted. A massage on the painful area can help you relieve the pain, but that’s only a short-term solution to your problem.
Sciatica is actually a back pain along the sciatic nerve. Those nerves start from the lower back and go down to your leg.
If you want a quick pain relief, you can try this amazing trick. All you need is a tennis ball.
The tennis ball therapy can help you reduce lower back pain because it works on the muscle near the sciatic nerve. Sit or lay on the floor. Place the ball near the muscle where it hurts. If the painful area is larger, you can use 2 balls. Start moving your body slowly so that the ball moves around the muscle area. Compress the ball on the most painful spots for 20 seconds. Do this a few times a day and you’ll notice amazing results.
Another thing you can try is eating spicy foods. Spicy foods like chili peppers will reduce the inflammation and will take off the pressure of the sciatic nerve.
