Massage Therapy - Massages increase blood circulation and promote muscle relaxation. They also release the body's endorphins and help to reduce pain.
Active Exercise -
Stretching, Tai Chi and Yoga are effective exercises to reduce sciatic pain. Without exercise, the back muscles become weak and are unable to support the back. This can lead to back stress, strain and injury. According to, "Movement helps exchange nutrients and fluids within the discs to keep them healthy."
