Sciatica is pain that you feel at your lower back that’s shoots down to your buttocks and legs. Did you know that your psoas muscles play a significant role in getting relief from this sciatica pain. Physically, the psoas is the deepest muscle in the human body; it connects the spine to the legs. It is central to the core and affects structural balance, mobility, flexibility, and organ functions.
If your work is a sitting job where you are sitting on a chair for long periods of time, eg. computer work, cab or truck driving, bookkeeping, etc. Sitting position work keeps your psoas muscles in a contracted state. This inhibits blood circulation which can lead to problems in the lower back, hips, knees, or ankles and sciatica.
Psoas muscles, covers the sciatic nerve and is one of the keys to relieving sciatic compression. This muscle can be become tight and inflamed due to long periods of sitting, sedentary lifestyle and by traumatic stress. The psoas originates in the lower back and grows out of the lumbar spine. Flowing diagonally through the core, the psoas combines with another muscle to form one tendon that attaches to the inside of the thigh bone. The psoas plays a larger role as a holistic muscle, integrating the physical, mental, and emotional. It affects the whole person, and it profoundly influences many aspects of our health and well-being. Psoas also connects to the nervous system. It is closely involved in the fight-flight-freeze stress response. Stress tends to trigger and tighten the psoas; the psoas in turn helps to prepare the body to run away or contract into a fetal position for safety. Chronic stress can lead to psoas dysfunction and pelvic instability. Emotions play an important role with the psoas muscles. Unprocessed feelings of fear and memories of traumatic stress can be held in the psoas and play a role in post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), depression, anxiety, sleep disorders, and various other mental/emotional issues.
