There are two major causes of sciatica, both of which involve irritation to the sciatic nerve, but differ in where the pressure is applied, yet both have the same original cause, the sacroiliac joint. The pain is most often felt in the buttocks but may follow the nerve down the back of the upper leg to the outside of the calf, and into the big toe. In some instances, it can lead to weakening and shrinking of the leg muscles that are served by the sciatic nerve. Treatment involves stabilizing the sacroiliac joint (SI joint). The Serola Belt may be considered the first step in conservative care as it may give complete relief by itself. Most exercise involves stretching but, be careful, muscles become tight for a reason; they help stabilize the SI joint. Stretching tight muscles may also stretch the sacroiliac ligaments &re-injure the SI joint. Wearing a Serola Belt during exercise and stretching is your best chance to keep the SI joint stable and minimize stress to the sciatic nerve.
