How Massage Can Ease Sciatic Pain

Ease Sciatic Pain with Massage Therapy in Houma

Houma-Thibodaux Spine and Rehabilitation deliver effective sciatica relief. We use a combination of chiropractic care and Thibodaux massage therapy at both of our LA locations to alleviate lower back pain, leg pain and limited flexibility that accompany sciatica. Sciatica occurs when the sciatic nerve is not functioning at its best. The nerve may be feeling pressure from a vertebrae that is out of place or a disc that is herniated or degenerating. Since the nerve affects blood flow and signals to the muscles, massage therapy steps in to ease sciatic pain and helps to restore your mobility.easing sciatic pain with massage therapy in houma and thibodaux

Thibodaux Massage Therapy for Sciatica Relief

You may think of massage therapy to alleviate stress or reduce muscle tension. Both of these reasons plus more help to ease sciatic pain. For instance, when you are in constant pain, your stress level increases, which adds to the pain and inflammation response. A weekly massage reduces your stress level and prepares your mind to handle the sciatic pain until it is fully healed. Plus, massages naturally decrease inflammation in the muscles of your back, hips, and legs which can reduce strain on the sciatic nerve. When the muscles are relaxed, they are less likely to pull your spine out of alignment which can decrease the chances of the vertebrae pressing on the sciatic nerve. Our massage therapy services also partner well with chiropractic adjustments by easing muscle tension so adjustments are easier and also by supporting proper strength and flexibility to keep the adjustment in position. Massage therapy may also work to eliminate any muscle spasms that occur because the sciatic nerve is compromised- we are able to improve the flow of circulation and nerve signals so you can reclaim pain-free living. Our massage therapists when you to discover the gentle, natural benefits of massage to lessen sciatic pain. We quickly learn how your body responds to a massage and are able to position the muscles to support a healthy posture and ease your discomfort.
