The sciatic nerve is the longest nerve in the human body. It stretches from the back of the legs to the buttocks, down the length of the legs and to the feet.
If it gets inflamed or irritated, this nerve can cause a severe pain that extends from the area below the knees to the area above the ribs, and in some cases even in the back. It is a pain that often times manifests itself by numbness, tingling sensations and heaviness in the legs.
The root cause of the pain dictates its intensity, but in most of the cases, it is described as intolerable. It can be debilitating, traumatizing, and it can impede even the easiest movements. This, of course, will negatively impact the daily life of the person that is experiencing it.
Sciatica pain is often times treated with numerous medications, which have the ability to relieve the pain quickly, but all that these medications do is they treat its symptoms, instead of the cause of the pain.
This is why we are suggesting that you try natural remedies and exercises. In this article, we are going to recommend a ten-minute treatment that you need to do before you go to sleep, in order to relieve the pain.
You need to take a bucket and fill it with 10 liters of hot water, and then add one liter of apple cider vinegar and a handful of salt. You need to stir the mixture well so that the salt can be dissolved, and then soak your feet in the mixture until you notice that it is starting to cool down.
Then, take your legs out, dry them and go to bed. You can also cover your feet with a blanket during the night, in order to keep them warm. When you wake up in the morning, it is important that you avoid walking barefoot. Wear slippers or put on a pair of socks.
This is a treatment that will provide amazing results, and you will begin to experience its benefits even after the first time. Repeat it every day!
