If you have Sciatica Pain chances are the pain is keeping you awake at night. Many people with Sciatic Pain find their normal or preferred sleep position aggravates their symptoms making it difficult to get ANY rest.
“I just can’t get comfortable no matter what I try.” Sound familiar?
The most common complaint I hear from my patients with Sciatica Pain is that they “cannot find a comfortable position”, especially when sitting. Standing, walking and sleeping are often difficult for most people with sciatica too, but increased Sciatica Pain with sitting definitely tops the list.
Why does sitting make Sciatica worse?
As one year ends and a new year begins, we tend to reflect on the time that has passed and look forward to a “fresh start” as we move into a new year. This is also a time when many of us set goals, including things like improving different aspects of our health. For some it’s weight loss, decreasing stress or sleeping better. For others it might be improving diabetes, high blood pressure or high cholesterol.
This is also a time many people decide it’s time to FINALLY do something about that nagging lingering pain they’ve been dealing with for months or years. If you’ve been in pain for any length of time you know how much it can affect your life and impact your health. Pain can affect your sleep and your ability to move and stay active, which leads to weight gain and many other health problems.
