8 Instant Relieving Yoga Asanas For Sciatica

Sciatica is a nerve that stems out from the spine, running deep into the buttock, and traveling down to the back of each leg. This nerve also happens to be the longest nerve in the body.

When this nerve is pressed, or blood circulation in the area is reduced, a shooting pain passes through the area, making sitting and standing quite a task. The pain increases when the person is seated.

Sciatica can also arise from spinal disorders like spondylitis, spinal stenosis, a damaged or ruptured disc, a lower back injury, or a degenerative disc disease. All of these put pressure on the Sciatic nerve, thereby, inducing pain.
