Sciatica Pain: Sitting and Sciatica are closely related. The discs in the spine function as cushions between the bones in the spine. These are considered to be viscoelastic. The discs contain a fluid-like substance and when sitting for extended periods of time, the liquid inside the discs is pushed out, causing them to flatten. Degeneration can magnify this. When this happens, the disc bulges and can place pressure on the spinal nerve causing the symptoms associated with sciatica.

Sciatica pain can be solved by a brisk walk, take a few minutes to understand why this works and why laying down is likely the wrong move.

Sciatica pain caused by extended amounts of time sitting can be solved by understanding the function of a degenerated disc. Taking a walk with sciatica reduces the flattening effect that causes the burlge and nerve pressure. For more information, please feel free to ask Dr. Jimenez or contact us at (915) 850-0900.
