One of the worst things you can do to a muscle is to leave it in a shortened position for a long period of time.

There is good news for Long Islanders who suffer from Sciatica pain. Hands On HealthCare Massage Therapy, P.C. is now offering complimentary evaluations to help determine if Medical Massage Therapy can help relieve their pain.
Many times this common ailment is caused by trigger points in the buttocks and back. Though there can be multiple reasons for sciatica pain, very often, it is caused by the piriformis muscle. The sciatic nerve innervates the back of the leg, runs under, over, or through the piriformis muscle. Often, tightness or entrapment in the piriformis can cause sciatica pain, which very often causes intense pain in the low back, buttocks, all the way down the back of the leg into the foot. This is commonly referred to as piriformis syndrome and can be a pain in the buttocks! Often people do not stand with their weight evenly distributed between the two legs. Almost everyone tends to stand with the weight shifted to one leg or the other. And that means, piriformis, which outwardly rotates the hip, is working overtime.
Driving, especially long distances, can aggravate this condition. Kaplan-Pelle states, “One of the worst things you can do to a muscle is to leave it in a shortened position for a long period of time. Most people tend to drive with their knees apart, thus keeping the hips outwardly rotated. That's one reason so many people experience low back or leg pain after long driving. Therefore, frequent stops, even if only to walk once around the car, it often recommended in addition, keeping a wallet out of a back pocket to eliminate undo pressure on the sciatic nerve.” Massage Therapy can often eliminate the pain associated with Piriformis Syndrome. The muscles may need to be re-educated and the associated trigger points addressed.
Soft-tissue pain can mimic the symptoms of many disorders, and can also contribute to pain from other causes. Hands On HealthCare Massage Therapy recommends that people not engage in self-diagnosis. A proper diagnosis is key to fixing the problem. Always obtain qualified medical advice from your medical doctor before undergoing any treatment.
