The American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk is important to me. If you're at all like me, breast cancer has probably touched someone close to you too so I'm sure you can understand. I'm hoping that you can support cancer patients with a donation.
Making Strides walks raise awareness and money to help save lives from breast cancer. When you make a donation, the American Cancer Society is able to fund innovative breast cancer research, provide free comprehensive information and support, and help people reduce their breast cancer risk or find it early when it is most treatable.
Thank you so much.
If you have holiday travel plans, and are concerned with how you’ll cope with nagging sciatic-related pain, we’ve got a few tips that may help:
1. Bring disposable hot and cold packs
Cold can help reduce inflammation and calm down sciatic pain. Heat, on the other hand, can help stimulate healing. Bring disposable hot and cold packs with you as you travel for relief on the go.
2. Pay attention to position
Sitting for long periods is tough for those with sciatica. Combat this problem by altering your sitting position, like tilting your seat backwards to reduce the pressure on the sciatic nerve. A lumbar support pillow may also help calm down sciatic pain.
3. Stretch as much as possible
Leaning forward slowly can help release pressure in your lower back and reduce sciatic pain. Pulling your knee up to your chest and rounding out your lower back may also help. These moves can be done standing up, even in confined spaces such as on a plane.
These tips can help you cope with the pain of sciatica, but keep in mind, these are just temporary measures. To overcome your issue once and for all, it’s best to seek the help of a medical professional.
