Massage Works Case Study Sciatica
I have found massage therapy to be very effective on Sciatic pain with our clients.
And I had another happy client this wee! She has had sciatic pain for 8 years. After her first visit the pain lessened but was still there at times. She told me she just thought it was something she would have to live with.
I knew from the excessive muscle tension in her gluteus muscles and especially piriformis muscle that directly effects the sciatic nerve, that this was most likely not true when the glutes and piriformis are released through massage and pressure point release they lessen the pressure on the sciatic nerve and the pain goes away.
After the second session she had increased muscle suppleness and relief of pain for a week. After her third massage session focusing on her glute, piriformis, low back and legs her pain has been gone for over 2 weeks!
Yay I’m always thrilled when a serious problem a client thought was “just something they have to learn to live with” goes away so quickly!
