The Hidden Causes of Sciatica

The Hidden Causes of Sciatica

 What are the hidden causes of sciatica?

Before I explain about the hidden causes of sciatica, let’s first find out what sciatica actually is.

Sciatica is physically created by pressure on the longest and thickest nerve in the body.  This can become aggravated by the pressure from a ‘slipped’ disc or inflamed muscle.

The spinal areas involved with sciatica are often the intervertebral discs in the lumbar area of the spine which when under pressure, squeeze out against the sciatic nerve. As the body translates emotional pain into physical sensations, deep emotional pain translates to strong physical pain.

The emotional feelings behind sciatic pain come from our negative beliefs and past experiences, which may have been triggered consciously or unconsciously.

Feeling under pressure is physically expressed as pressure on the sciatic nerve.  Inflammation is another word for anger and rage, especially when it cannot be expressed.  The piriformis muscle in the buttock can become inflamed and so agitating the sciatic nerve which passes next or through it.  The referred pain is very often down the back of the leg. However, it can appear in the pelvis or other parts of the leg and the foot.

These are some of the emotions relating to the hidden causes of sciatica:

  • Anxiety regarding creative abilities
  • Feeling emotionally or physically invaded by the family.
  • Blocked communication causes internal anger and rage.
  • Accepting self as a family scapegoat with no right to speak up.
  • Being hypocritical with self by disregarding one’s own desires.
  • Carrying grudges and refusing to submit to someone or an idea.
  • Sciatica can express a lack of joy in life. For some, seeing life as dull.
  • Fear of money. Maybe comfortable financially but may have a fear of losing it.
  • Overachievers and perfectionists have hidden beliefs that they are not good enough. Therefore have to prove themselves. This never works as what they are really seeking is love and recognition.

Using my own unique methods I am able to help you pinpoint the exact emotions that are causing your sciatica and to safely release the crystalised energies of these emotions and release your need to suffer the related pain and discomfort.

  1. Is sciatica pain really because of emotional disturbance? What can i do to cure it?

    • Tony Mills says:

      Hello Aman, thank you for your enquiry. there is always an emotional reason for back pain. When addressed the body no longer needs to express it. I posted this blog and video because not only do I get to the root cause but have the means to communicate with the body in order for it to release the pain. The beauty of this method is that I can work by video ( zoom) as if you were in the same room as me. Here is the link There is an offer on Zoom of 4 sessions for the price of 3. Warm wishes Tony

    I’ve had sciatica and low back pain off and on after I started peritoniel dialysis about a year ago. When I sleep, I sleep on my back. Don’t know if this causes it or not. I have been under a lot of stress lately. My son has been hospitalized over this past month. He’s now living in a group home. He’s 44 years old. I’m 77. All this has devastated me. It feels like I have a hole in my heart. I definitely can relate to your comments about how one feels emotionally about life and how it can affect a person physically. So, that’s where I’m at.

    • Tony Mills says:

      Dear Anthony,
      So sorry to hear about your son. It must be very painful for you. Sciatica very often happens to kind gentle people who carry hidden feelings of resentment or anger that they feel they should not express.
      I may be able to help you with this, as I now work mainly by Zoom and you can find out more on this page of my website
      Or should you like to discuss your situation more, you can reach me by email using my Contact form.
      Warm wishes

  3. A truly interesting article. I suffer from intermittent lower back pain.
    Keeps making me feel like a fool, especially on pain free days.
    I self reikied myself and it actually made it worse.
    You have verified my thoughts that is was more than physical.
    Thank you
