3 Hip Pain
Hip pain in people with sciatica is a common complaint. Inflammation around the sciatic nerve usually causes it. The inflammation may result from lower back pain and irritation, particularly around the vertebra of L4 or L5. The swelling is often deep instead of superficial when it comes to the hips. Gentle postures of yoga are often recommended for treating hip pain and inflammation. For this symptom, gentle back bending and hip rotations are particularly useful. If the pain is severe, it can be beneficial to sleep with the knees bent and supported by a pillow.
