Ice pack compresses help to reduce the inflammation of a pinched nerve by numbing the pain while a hot compress helps by loosening the muscles around the pained nerve as well as relieve the pressure around the nerve. Ice Compress and Hot compress must be performed for at least 20 minutes each.

Proper posture

For those who suffer from sciatica pain, they should maintain a proper sitting posture. The proper sitting posture is to keep the back supported while feet are touching the ground. For this posture, a person suffering from sciatica pain must choose a seat with the following features.

  • Lower back support
  • Armrests

The right sleeping position

Lastly, for sciatica pain, a person must have a proper sleeping posture. For these people, the sleeping suture must be to fully lie flat on the back. To reduce the pressure off of the nerve, slightly elevate the knees by placing a pillow beneath them. The position will allow the hips to be slightly titled and ensure good quality sleep.
