Home Remedies for Sciatica

Sciatic pain in the sciatic nerve can radiate from the buttocks to the knee. To ease this pain, I advise you to try some of the following home remedies of sciatica:

  • Take any of your old bills and roll it to form a bulging paper ball. Place this ball in your back pocket. This will help to support the sciatic nerve.
  • Piriformis is a spindle shaped muscle that lies within each buttock. Stretch out your piriformis to ease the sciatic pain. You can ask for your partner or your friend to help you in stretching your piriformis muscles.
  • Sciatic pain can also be relieved by pressing the acupressure point on your buttocks. This point lies deep within the skin so find the center of depression carefully at the sides of your buttocks.
  • Nutmeg contains saponin and an essential oil that helps to ease pain.
  • Bitter chamomile is another natural herb that is beneficial for curing sciatic pain. The herb comprises a volatile oil that contains chamazulence, farnesene and bisabolol. This oil is of medicinal value and consists of curative properties that help in fast healing.
  • Another essential herb used for the treatment of sciatic pain is Indian Aloe. The leaves of this natural herb have medicinal properties and are also helpful in restoring the disordered functions of nutrition. This herb is also useful in reliving sciatic pain.
