Sciatica occurs when the sciatic nerves are disturbed or are compressed due to some reasons. Even though the reason for sciatica is same for everyone, the pain is often felt differently among the people. This is because the sciatic nerve spreads over a considerable part of the human body. The pain can sometimes be felt to be originating from lower back to the legs and even to the feet. In addition to the pain, tingling, throbbing ache (general or localized) and numbness can be felt.

The most common is calf soreness and is often misdiagnosed and can hold up the correct treatment. If calf soreness (pain) stays for a quite some time, the reason behind maybe sciatic pain. The patient should see a doctor immediately and go for an intensive treatment.


After it has been diagnosed that the patient’s calf pain is due to sciatica, he/she should take immediate steps to ease the irritation and future complications. There are various medicines also which can help the patient to reduce the inflammation for e.g. aspirin, ibuprofen or acetaminophen.

Physical treatment for calf

Yoga has always been the best for keeping the human body fit. Even doctors recommend yoga as a treatment for sciatica. It helps to stretch the body thereby increasing strength and flexibility. Practicing yoga can give you long term relief from sciatica. Yoga can deal with three major issues that are responsible for sciatica. Firstly it will take care of the irritating nerve, then align the muscles, and finally strengthen the muscles to prevent future complications. However, yoga may not provide immediate relief but is always recommended for long term relief. Besides sciatica relief, yoga increases the blood circulation and overall health of people. It also lessens the chance of any heart related disease, mental degeneration and physical strength as people grow old.

Medical approach

VAX-D or Vertebral axial decompression is a conventional treatment in this case. It involves a traction table to detach the spinal vertebrae plates. This allows the constricted disc to restore its position. Apart from the conventional treatment, a new treatment, IDET or intro discalelectrothermy. In herniated disc, the disc swells with watery liquid and disturbs the nerve. IDET treatment will heat up the disc and then dries it. It takes about 15 minutes to complete it.

Surgery is the last method to diagnose herniated disc. However it is not recommended as it can lead to unexpected result in some cases.
