Did you know that the sciatic nerve is the longest and thickest of the human body? At some points it can reach up to 1.5 cm in diameter! It begins in the spinal cord, in the lower part of the back, runs the entire leg and reaches the foot. It controls the muscles of the entire leg, from the thigh to the sole of the foot. When there is pressure or damage to this nerve, it causes sciatica, which in reality is not a disease in itself but a symptom of other conditions.
The sciatica pain occurs when there is pressure on the nerve caused by lesions of the lumbar vertebrae, nerve inflammation or contractions of the muscles around the sciatic nerve.
Several homemade recipes you can use to relieve sciatic nerve pain, relaxing muscles, activating the circulation and reducing inflammation.
