Home treatment methods are known to effectively address the main cause leading to sciatica pain which is the muscle imbalance situation. When you visit a doctor related to your sciatic pain doctor usually never mention or discuss muscle imbalance rather what they do is resort to pain relieving drugs initially which are firstly not very effective and also come with side effects associated with them. The best of medicines are known to temporarily relieve the sufferer from pain.

Some doctors may prescribe physical therapy to a sciatic patient however this therapy is too generic and is not centered towards muscle imbalance also multiple visits are required for physical therapy to effect the pain and not all insurances cover the cost.

Home treatment methods

Chiropractic treatment form is also useful but only in conditions where the reason of pain is misalignment of vertebrae in the spine section. This treatment form is known as adjustments and alignments which are seldom covered by insurances and due to multiple visits for the treatment to be effective choosing this form is often not practical for patients. Also chiropractic form of treating sciatica takes sometimes before it shows results.

Also if the pain is chronic and is being experienced for a period of more than a few days chiropractic actions are ineffective on the pain and also in some cases applying these techniques can worsen the pain.

Home treatment for sciatica is opted for when no other method seems to be working. One such method is shoe lifting which is a natural cure for treating the difference that has occurred naturally between the lengths of both the legs.

Many people have a slight difference in the length of their legs however this has never been the cause of pain. The pain occurs due to the strained muscle, muscle pull or muscle imbalance.  Shoe lifts therapy basically aims at preventing  the hip tilt from correcting itself and thus in no manner relieves the pain rather ignites it even more sometimes extending further on to the knees feet and joints.

A better yet form of home treatment for sciatica are the exercises specifically designed and aimed at correcting muscle imbalance. An expert physical therapist recommends necessary exercises and stretches to the patient however these exercises are useless during a flare-up.

If however these exercises are learned and practiced at home on a regular basis one can get relief from the pain in a very nominal time. Patients who suffered from chronic sciatic pain have found relief through practicing this method of exercising regularly at home using specific problem related exercise moves.
