Relief from Sciatica Pain in Tampa

Sciatica is a common type of pain affecting the sciatic nerve, a large nerve extending from the lower back down the back of each leg.  Your sciatic pain flares up when the sciatic nerve roots in your lower back are pinched or irritated. The team at Tampa Bay Sports & Medical Massage can help to relieve your sciatica pain; contact us today to book a massage!

Common Symptoms of Sciatica

  • Lower back pain

  • Pain in the rear or leg that is worse when sitting

  • Hip pain

  • Burning or tingling down the leg

  • Weakness, numbness, or difficulty moving the leg or foot

  • A constant pain on one side of the rear

  • A shooting pain that makes it difficult to stand up

Sciatica usually affects only one side of the lower body. Often, the pain extends from the lower back all the way through the back of the thigh and down through the leg. Depending on where the sciatic nerve is affected, the pain may also extend to the foot or toes.

For some people, the pain from sciatica can be severe and debilitating. For others, the sciatica pain might be infrequent and irritating, but has the potential to get worse. At our South Tampa massage center, we fix broken people and will personalize a massage therapy treatment that will relieve your sciatica pain.  

How Does Massage Therapy Relieve Sciatic Pain?

Massage therapy helps alleviate sciatic nerve pain in two ways:

  • Tight lower back muscles can place stress on your nerve roots. Massage therapy loosens these muscles and helps prevent pinching or irritation.

  • A massage encourages the release of pain-fighting endorphins—this can provide temporary relief from symptoms like the throbbing pain in your foot or the burning sensation in your leg.
