Massage Therapy and Sciatica Relief

21 Oct

Sciatica causes many people undue pain on a daily basis. One of the causes for Sciatica is when the Sciatic nerve gets pinched by a muscle called the Piriformis( a deep muscle that rotates the femur). When this occurs it is called entrapment, as the muscle entraps the nerve, causing pain that can radiate down the leg.

One of the many benefits of Therapeutic Massage is that it can loosen this muscle, relieving its vice like grip on the Sciatic nerve and ease the pain this condition causes.
