Tips to Relieve Sciatica & Back Pain When Walking

Standing too upright compresses your discs and joints in your back when walking. Leaning forward when walking can be very helpful to relieve that soreness in your back when walking. This will help you not walk too upright which could be causing some of your sciatica or back pain when walking.

3 Easy Ways To Help Relieve Sciatica Or Back Pain When Walking

  1. Lean forward - this helps open up the spaces in your back so they don't compress together.
  2. Pushing off the toes of your back foot help you propel forward and naturally start to lean forward
  3. If you're on a treadmill - increase the incline! It will encourage you and allow you to lean forward more naturally
  4. Walk up a hill- this will allow you to lean forward more just like the treadmill

We hope these tips help relieve your sciatica or back pain when walking!
