Having sciatica makes it challenging to get around and feel comfortable while sitting or lying down. The bad news is that this condition indicates that something is putting pressure on the sciatic nerve that runs from your lower back to your feet, which is why you feel pain. The good news is that sciatica usually doesn’t last long and can often be treated with self-care measures at home. That means you shouldn’t have to worry about having to take prescription pain medications, receive steroid injections or undergo surgery. The following are some of the ways that you can treat sciatica at home.

I recently appeared on a TV show in Chicago called “You and Me this Morning.”  On the show the host asked me what is the best stretch for back pain?  I love this question because knowing the best way to perform an activity ensures very often you can get people to actually do the activity.  This is because we like the power of one.  Do one thing and get the result is what we are all about in America.  Give me the best and I don’t have to fool with the rest and I can get back to living my life.

Home Remedies to Reduce Neck Pain

For every inch your head moves forward of your upper back the strain on your neck increases exponentially! Thus, it is essential to try and maintain a more erect posture when working at a desk, driving a car, or performing arm activities (such as carrying things). Your body's musculature serves two functions – to produce movement and to control or guide that movement. The large, superficial muscles produce movement and are usually very active and easy to train. The deeper muscles that guide movements are important for preventing injury and they often become weak when you are in pain and thus require specific therapeutic exercises to activate and train them.
