If you have sciatica, then you know first-hand how severe sciatica pain can be. Sciatica pain is often caused by the pinching, inflammation, or compression of the sciatic nerve in the lower back. This pain can spread up and down the leg and may radiate down to your ankle.

Do compression garments help with sciatica pain? The answer is yes: compression clothing from SWEAT IT OUT® can help ease pain caused by sciatica and help those suffering get back to their everyday routines. 

Keep in mind that not all compression garments are created equal! Mass market compression garments do not offer the support needed to help with sciatica pain. For the best results, you need to choose high-quality products manufactured with your health and comfort in mind. 

SWEAT IT OUT® with COOL COMPRESSION® Technology offers a uniquely-designed line of compression garments to supply you with lower back and thigh support to help with pain and ease swelling. The Performance Compression Tights for Men and Women can help ease pain related to sciatica.

Here is what causes sciatica and how compression clothing can help relieve sciatica pain:

What Causes Sciatica Pain?

Several medical conditions can cause sciatica pain, but it is generally caused by anything that compresses or irritates the sciatic nerve. A few conditions that may cause sciatica include:

  • A herniated or slipped disc
  • A vertebra fracture
  • Bone spurs (osteoarthritis)
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Spinal stenosis (when the space that the spinal cord & sciatic nerve roots travel through becomes narrowed)

Who is Likely to Suffer From Sciatica Pain?

Sciatica can happen for several reasons, which means many different types of people may experience sciatica pain.

Sciatica can occur in those with:

  • A physically-demanding job
  • An inactive lifestyle
  • A previous injury
  • Diabetes 
  • Osteoarthritis

Sciatica pain can also be linked to

  • Middle-aged people
  • Seniors/older people
  • Athletes (walking & running)

For those who suffer from it, sciatica pain can be debilitating. Sciatica can disrupt your daily routines and prevent you from enjoying everyday activities. Additionally, the overwhelming pain may restrain your ability to work, exercise, and get much-needed sleep.

High-quality compression garments from SWEAT IT OUT® do help with sciatica pain, which can assist you in getting back to doing the activities you love most.

How Compression Garments Can Help Relieve Sciatica Pain

You may still be wondering how compression clothing can help relieve sciatica pain in specific ways. For starters, performance compression tights can help reduce swelling and improve blood flow in your legs. Good circulation is extremely important in alleviating pain and other symptoms of sciatica, like numbness and muscle weakness. 

The SWEAT IT OUT® Performance Compression Back Support Shorts for Men and Women and the Performance Compression Thigh, Groin & Hip Support Shorts for Men and Women are ideal for herniated discs and sciatic nerve pain.

The secret is in the COOL COMPRESSION® Technology, which stretches 360° and over 200% in all directions while providing the perfect amount of compression to help with swelling and poor circulation. Our compression garments work with you instead of against you!

While compression garments do help with sciatica pain, they should NOT be worn while sleeping. Remember that compression gear is a preventative measure and should not be used like aspirin to heal injuries. If you are experiencing severe pain, seek medical attention.

Choose Compression Garments to Relieve Discomfort

Our high-quality compression garments may help with sciatica pain and are recommended by chiropractors, doctors, and athletic trainers. We highly suggest wearing compression garments as the first layer next to your skin all day to achieve maximum impact.
