Have you seen multiple doctors for your sciatica but only received temporary and minimal pain relief?
There's a reason for that, and it's because most of these doctors only use 1 out of 3 treatments you must receive to permanently relieve your sciatica.
That's why in this article, you will discover the 3 treatments you must go through to fully reverse your sciatica pain once and for all.
Before getting started
If you haven't watched the first video that talks about the pain cycle and how you most likely got sciatica, then click here to watch that first. Otherwise, you might get a little lost.
Rules for the Triple Treatment
There are only 2 rules you must follow to get the most out of this triple treatment.
- You must take your time at each stage during the treatment. I understand you're probably in a lot of pain, but if you attempt to rush this treatment, you will not get any results.
- You must go in the order outlined. Changing up the order or skipping treatments will not give you the relief you're looking for.
The first treatment you must go through is a self-massage. This can be performed with a foam roller, lacrosse ball, and much more.
If you recall from the pain cycle, there are 2 stages that self-massage is designed for and that is for breaking up adhesions/fascia and releasing trigger points, which is how a muscle can become overactive.
The first thing self-massage does is break up old fascia that's restricting the muscle from moving. Fascia is a spiderweb-like connective tissue that wraps around everything from our muscles, organs, and to individual cells. Every morning when you wake up, your body has created a new layer of fascia throughout the body and every time you perform your morning stretch, you help loosen up the fascia, which allows the body to move freely.
But when you don't move in different directions, like bending backward or laterally, then the fascia begins to build up over time. And when this happens, the fascia begins to get tangled up and harden, making it even harder to move.
So when you perform a self-massage, you are helping break up the fascia bundles and even helping it unravel, making it easier to move.
Releasing Trigger Points
The 2nd thing a self-massage can do is help release trigger points, which is one of the reasons a muscle can become overactive and create a muscle imbalance. Trigger points are hyperactive bundles of nerves that force the muscle to stay active and tight.
When you self-massage your muscles, chances are you are going to find really tender spots that could be a little painful in the beginning. These are most likely trigger points, especially if the pain begins to go away after a few minutes of massaging the muscles.
Releasing the Altered Pelvis Part 1
If you recall from my previous video, Because the pelvis acts like a seesaw and because the hip flexors are tighter and stronger than the hip extensors, the HF will end up pulling down on the pelvis anytime, you stand up or lay flat. And when the front of the pelvis gets pulled down because of tight HF, the back of the pelvis gets pushed up into the spinal discs, creating compression on your sciatic nerve.
Because of this, the hip flexors will usually have a large number of trigger points as well as fascia restrictions.

Once your fascia and trigger points are gone with the self-massage, then it's time to stretch the muscles. Whenever you perform your own stretches, it's very important for you to hold your stretches for AT LEAST 30-60 seconds. And also, make sure you're not stretching the muscle to the point it's painful and you can't breathe.
If you attempted to stretch the muscle before performing a self-massage, then you will only be fighting the fascia and trigger points that's keeping the pelvis pulled down.
Releasing the Altered Pelvis Part 2
Heading back to our altered pelvis, Now that you have gotten rid of the trigger points and broken up the fascia, the muscle is now free to be stretched and finally level out the pelvis.

The final treatment is exercising. Once again, recalling the 3 pieces of muscle imbalance, you have gotten rid of the tight muscles and helped improve the altered joint. Now, the final thing to perform is exercising the weak muscles.
This is where most of you probably started their treatment, unfortunately, and it's most likely the reason you felt only minimal and temporary relief. If you attempted to exercise before the first 2 steps, then you will only be exercising against a muscle that is locked in that position. This makes it almost impossible for the weaker muscles to fire and activate properly.
Anchoring the Altered Pelvis
Back to the once altered joint. Now that it's more level, you can finally anchor in the new results by exercising the opposite muscles, in this case, the hip flexors.

Because the pelvis acts like a seesaw, which is caused by our posture and constantly sitting, we end up developing sciatica pain. To get rid of it, you must go through these 3 treatments in this order. Self-massage, stretching, and exercising. Without going through this order, you will only feel minimal relief with almost a guarantee of pain returning in the future.
