Sciatica (Sciatic Nerve Pain)
Sciatica pain radiates from the buttocks down through the leg.
The Sacroiliac joint is located in the back, where your pelvis connects to your sacrum, commonly referred to as the tailbone. These areas allow for movement of the hips and low back. Restrictions of these joints can cause muscle guarding, spasm and pain.
SOFT TISSUE STRUCTURE
The gluteal region is a highly muscular area of your body. It contains the gluteus musculature, of which the gluteus maximus is the largest and most commonly known. Myofascial pain is often related to tight glutes. The piriformis is a deep small muscle which can create many issues when it becomes spasmed and tight. It is in the area of your sciatic nerve and can cause compression and irritation to this nerve. This pain is commonly referred to as sciatica and can often create a radiating pain from your glutes down the back of your leg.
Sciatic nerve pain can be painful and debilitating. I will turn off the pain signals that are causing dysfunction and spasming with P-DTR Therapy, and I may also use myofascial release and/or trigger point therapy to release the affected muscles. I have had great success in permanently relieving sciatica pain.
