Sciatica is shooting pain accompanied sometimes with numbness and radiates along the sciatic nerve. The sciatic nerve starts in your lower back and moves all the way down to your feet, by passing through your butt, the back of your calves and heels.
Sciatica can sometimes immobilize you temporarily, when it gets aggravated.
The best way to treat it is to relax your muscles, don’t take stress and avoid putting weight on the side where your sciatica is aggravated.
Soaking your feet in hot water with epsom salts will also give you temporary relief.
However, to manage this on a long term basis, Chinese Foot Reflexology has been found to be most effective. 3 critical points on each leg, and a professionally done therapy will keep you going for a while.
