The vast majority of people will experience back pain during their life. About one out of every three people say that low back pain impacts their everyday activities, including sleep. Sciatica is a common cause of low back pain, but did you know that trigger points are frequently the cause of sciatic pain? But there’s good news: You don’t necessarily need drugs or surgery to deal with
the problem. Trigger point massage therapy offers a natural way to relieve your sciatica.
Trigger points are the result of tiny knots in muscles that cause stiffness and pain. They are commonly found pain in back and neck muscles, but they can show up anywhere, from your head to your toes. Trigger points are also infamous for creating trouble in the form of referred pain or pain you experience in a different location from the trigger point itself. Doctors mostly ignore trigger points, but if you’ve got active ones, you’re not going to be able to.
Trigger points sometimes develop in muscles as a result of injury or repetitive motion, but they often occur as a result of postural strain, such as from sitting for too long. This can put stress on muscles near the sciatic nerve. The piriformis muscle is located in the pelvis and it can get tight from too much butt-in-chair time, pinching the sciatic nerve and activating trigger points.
Because the sciatic nerve is the longest in the body, running from the low back all the way down to the feet, when it’s irritated, you could feel pain just about anywhere in the lower half of your body.
To make things even more complicated, trigger points in the low back, hips and legs can mimic sciatic pain, making it very difficult for you to tell what’s really going on. This is why it’s good to talk to professionals, such as the neuromuscular massage therapists at Massage Revolution.
