Natural remedies for sciatica

Natural remedies for sciatica
Sciatica is the main pain that affects the sciatic nerve, a nerve that extends from the pelvis at the end of each leg. This pain can get worse when you are sitting. It can develop in different ways, but usually begins with a feeling of numbness in the leg, with tickling and ending with a pang of pain that makes it difficult to get up.
There are many reasons why sciatica can develop, but one of the most common among young women (why yes ladies, we are young), is pregnancy.
There is medication to relieve the pain of sciatica, but especially when you are pregnant we usually want to avoid resorting to medications. So in today's post we will talk about natural remedies to relieve it.

1. Heat
The star method to mitigate pain naturally is and always will be the application of heat. For this reason, we have created the Wawa Mom belt, which allows you to apply heat while favoring that you can keep moving. The cushions are strategically designed to relieve the most crucial areas in pregnancy. In addition, it is created by a midwife and scientifically tested so you can be sure that it is safe.

The cushions heat up quickly and have a slow cooling process. You can use them as many times as you need.

2. Cold
In some cases, the cold can also relieve. Wawa Mom's cushions can also be put in the freezer. The cold is mild and pleasant, so it is not comparable to the typical application of the pea bag. It is much more controlled and nothing aggressive.

In case you want to combine cold heat, you have the option of buying replacement cushions. We would recommend buying an extra set so you can have it in the freezer ready for when you need it.

3. Stretching.
Performing stretches correctly can relieve sciatica. This is why it is so advisable to do yoga during pregnancy. Why an instructor will help you do the stretching on a recurring basis and ensuring that you do it correctly.

4. Food.
There are certain foods that have anti inflammatory properties and can help reduce pain. Turmeric and garlic are some of them. However, it is very important that before eating anything consult your midwife if you are pregnant to avoid products that are abortive.

That said, it should be noted that there may be cases of sciatica in men and women who are not pregnant. And, for these cases, these remedies would be perfectly applicable to all of them. The pregnancy distinction is made because in these specific cases it is very important to ensure that we use products suitable for that time. But everything that is safe for a pregnant woman can be used by anyone else without problem.
