Sciatica is a condition where the sciatic nerve—the largest nerve in your body—becomes compressed. Sciatica can cause numbness and radiating pain in the lower back and legs.

One way you may want to manage your sciatica symptom is with Thai massage. Take a look at what this massage modality entails and how it could help.
