8 Easy Yoga Poses to Help Relieve Sciatica and Lower Back Pain In 30 Minutes


The sciatic nerve is the longest one in the body and it begins at the base of the spine and goes down through the muscles of the thigh and calf to the foot.

Every single person has around a 40% chance of suffering sciatica pain during his lifetime, and even though the pain may not be chronic, it is often intense and incredibly unpleasant. Yet, not all sciatica issues lead to pain, as at times, they may only lead to weakness in the knees and a tingling sensation in the legs.
