How to know if it’s Sciatica?
It’s simple as the fact that if you’ve had it you just know. It’s a pain in the spine, that radiates from the lower back down to the hip and leg. The pain becomes worse when sitting, and makes the leg feel numb with pain. For extreme cases, one might feel difficulty in moving the leg itself. All of this is caused by the Sciatic nerve – the largest nerve in your body that runs form your spine all the way down to your leg.
Most of the time, Sciatica is the result of a herniated disc. On fewer occasions, its something even more severe like tumours or degenerative disease.
But the most common reason of it all, is just normal day to day imbalances. If you’re staying sitting for too long, have the wrong posture etc. without acting on fixing it, and gain a tight lower back, it becomes the #1 reason in developing sciatica.
Some warning signs of sciatica to look out for include –
• Persistent lower back tightness
• Mild tingling or occasional numbness in the leg, foot, or toes
• Imbalanced body mechanics or posture, such as functional uneven leg length or scoliosis

It connects your mind to your body, and your body to your mind. When these two communicate well with each other, it becomes easier to be more mobile, improve balance, and reduce pain.
