Sciatic Nerve Pain During Pregnancy
I need your advice regarding sciatic nervepain during pregnancy. Pregnancy makes any sciatic nerve problemsyou have worse as it does carpal tunnel syndrome. I don't have carpal tunnel syndrome. The extra liters of fluids sloshing aroundyour body lead to extra pressure in the joints, whether your wrists or your ankles, whichcan put pressure on every nerve. That doesn't help me do much about it. Drink more water and fewer dehydrating drinkslike caffeinated soda or coffee so reduce the amount of water retention.
That sounds counter intuitive. Then there's the same advice they have forwhen your feet hurt due to fluid build up; put your feet up. Do you realize the sciatic nerve is in thebacké It usually takes the form of leg pain causedby the sciatic nerve getting pinched. Laying on your side to avoid putting pressureon it is one alternative. I don't think that's enough. If the sciatic pain is due to a herniateddisk, you have to meet with a regarding
your options, because the strain on the backis only going to grow along with the baby. I've never been diagnosed with a herniateddisk. There are some people who use a chiropractorfor treatment of sciatica. It is a little hard for me to fit on the tablewith this growing load up front. The same tables with holes on them that letpregnant women get a massage laying flat on their stomach are available to chiropractors;you simply need to find someone who has one of them. And the skills and expertise to not make thingsworse.
I've heard of acupuncture used as a sourceof pain relief. And it is one of the safer ones since youcan't take a lot of pain relievers when pregnant. Safe only if you consider getting needlessafe. We talked about how you can lay down to avoidputting more pressure on the nerve. You may also do it to rest the muscles thatmay be strained and mistaken for sciatica. I know what sciatica is; I've had flareups before. Then you may need to work on building coremuscles and flexibility of various joints.
This is exactly the wrong time to work ona strength building routine. Whether yoga or physical therapy, it couldreduce the muscle pain and spasms as well as the muscle relaxants you aren't supposedto take right now. There are other injections they can try. And how much of that isn't allowed becauseof the risks when you're pregnanté And you certainly don't want to try thesurgeries they offer to treat sciatica. I'm trying to avoid a Csection. Regular exercise to reduce the strain andpain are recommended, as long as it is the
right type. I've already been told not to turn and liftor twist because carrying the baby is workout enough on my lower back. Though if going for a walk makes the musclepains stronger and harder and they are already on a rhythm, you may be in labor. Then I have a short term answer and solutionto the pregnancy related sciatica.

And what I'm gonna do is I'm gonna bringmy knee with my opposite hand towards my shoulder over here. So I'm pulling this leg up and acrossmy body. And what you wanna do same kind of thing with all the stretches, you wanna pulland you wanna feel a stretch under there. Soon as you feel a really good stretch youwanna hold it for 30 seconds. So remember up and across the body. Just coming up isnot gonna get that piriformis stretch. But
coming up and across the body like I'm tryingto bring that knee towards my shoulder. Holding it there for about 30 secondsa real 30 seconds.And then coming back down and you wanna do that 3 times.
