Yoga for Sciatica

Sciatica may seem difficult to treat, but more than half of all sufferers can soothe and reduce flare-ups by combining judicious use of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (such as ibuprofen, aspirin, or naproxen) with some form of exercise (in particular yoga) that strengthens the back and helps relieve the pressure on the nerve root.

Many people rely on other complementary approaches to manage attacks. Of course, more intense pain may require stronger medications, such as oral steroids or epidural injections; and severe or recalcitrant cases may even require surgery to remove the portion of the disk that irritates the nerve root. But a yoga mat and a clear plan may be all that a sciatica sufferer needs.
