myofascial techniques BY TIL LUCHAU The sciatic nerve (yellow) is the largest and longest nerve in the body. Pain results when its nerve roots are compressed where they exit the lumbar spine (axial sciatica), or entrapped distally by other structures (appendicular sciatica). The dura (aqua), psoas (green), and piriformis (red) can each contribute to sciatic pain. Image courtesy Primal Pictures. Used with permission. 110 massage & bodywork july/august 2011
