Consult a Certified Hijama Practitioner and book yourself a hijama session.
Sciatica refers to pain that travels along the path of the sciatic nerve. The sciatic nerve travels from the lower back through the hips and buttocks and down each leg. Sciatica most often occurs when a herniated disk or an overgrowth of bone puts pressure on part of the nerve.
Although the pain associated with sciatica can be severe, most cases clear up with treatment in a few weeks. People who have severe sciatica and serious leg weakness or bowel or bladder changes might need surgery.
Sciatica pain can be almost anywhere along the nerve pathway. It’s especially likely to follow a path from the low back to the buttock and the back of a thigh and calf.
The pain can vary from a mild ache to a sharp, burning pain. Sometimes it can feel like a jolt or electric shock. It can be worse when coughing or sneezing or sitting a long time. Usually, sciatica affects only one side of the body.
Some people also have numbness, tingling or muscle weakness in the leg or foot. One part of the leg can be in pain, while another part can feel numb.
Risk factors for Sciatica may include age, obesity, occupation, prolonged sitting, diabetes etc
Sciatica can damage nerves, so seek help immediately. Hijama Nation would advise the following important hijama points for Sciatica. A detailed hijama treatment plan should be designed by the practitioner eliminating all medical conditions.
Treat yourself and your clients by these beneficial hijama points.
Hijama Cupping Therapy can help treat inflammation and improve blood flow in the targeted area. Hijama can be extremely effective in helping treat common nerve entrapments.
Hijama Cupping can target these points of pain accurately and naturally reduce joint or muscle pain. Cupping works to release the tension in the tissue in your body and in doing so can relax these sore muscles, ease neck and back pain, and relax tired and tense muscles.
Moving, fixed, cluster, fixed, dry and wet cupping can help strengthen muscles. Cupping can help get rid of many symptoms of Sciatica.
Hijama cupping has successfully been used to reduce pain and facilitate healing of disc injuries. Those who are looking to reduce pain associated with a herniated disc should consider cupping as one of their options.
Cupping therapy can even help you to treat pinched nerve symptoms such as numbness, tingling or weakness as long as pinching of the nerve is caused by tight muscles and is not pathological.
Use the following simple tips to reduce sciatica pain while sitting, don’t cross your legs, position flat feet on the floor, keep hips and knees bent at 45-degrees angle, avoid turning and twisting your body abruptly etc.
In order to prevent Sciatica follow these tips: Exercise regularly, use ice-packs and perform gentle stretches, keep good posture while sitting, use your body correctly and when standing for longer times rest one foot on a stool or small box from time to time.
Hijama Nation would advise regular hijama sessions, healthy diet and an active lifestyle to get rid of Sciatica. Foods rich in magnesium include spinach, Swiss chard, dark chocolate, dried pumpkin seeds, black beans, avocado, dried figs, yogurt, bananas, dairy, apricots, fish, and brown rice. Consuming more of these foods can help you manage and relieve sciatic pain.
