How Can Massage Relieve Sciatic Nerve Pain?

Massage therapy has been shown to be an effective way to relieve pain, and can specifically help to alleviate lower back pain.

When your core and lower back muscles are tight, they can apply pressure to the sciatic nerve or can trigger points around the nerve. Massage helps to soothe tense muscles and loosen knots, which relieves pressure on the nerve. Massage also stimulates the release of endorphins and can reduce the level of the stress hormone cortisol. This combination of effects can boost feelings of pleasure and provide pain relief and relaxation to aid in recovery.
