Massage Athletica - Sciatic Nerve Flossing

Oct. 2, 2012 | By: MassageAthletica

Sciatica describes pain resulting from irritation of the sciatic nerve, typically felt from the low back to behind the thigh and radiating down below the knee. Sciatica can result from a herniated disc directly pressing on the nerve, any cause of irritation or inflammation of this nerve can reproduce the painful symptoms of sciatica. In some cases soft tissues that have been overused produce adhesions within tissue that can create a nerve entrapment. For select patients nerve flossing is an excellent method to freeing up the entrapment.
