Kinesiology Taping for Sciatica and Lower Back Pain

Theratape Sciatica Have you ever suffered from Sciatica?  For those not familiar with this lower back affliction, sciatica usually results from a herniated disc or bone spur, causing pressure on the sciatic nerve and often resulting in inflammation and pain in the lower back and hips. In severe cases, the burning pain can travel all the way down the back of the leg to the foot.  Common treatments include medications and a combination of physical therapy, exercise and kinesiology taping. If left untreated, sciatica can worsen over time, so be proactive about treating this condition.  Speak to your doctor or physical therapist before beginning any treatments on your own, but don’t be surprised if your doctor doesn’t mention physical therapy, exercise or kinesiology taping as potential treatment options.  According to an article published by the American Physical Therapy Association, a recent study showed less than a third of primary care physicians recommended exercise and physical therapy as a treatment for sciatica, despite recommendations from the American College of Rheumatology and the American Pain Society.  If you doctor doesn't mention these treatment options, be sure to ask.
