Sciatica Causes Olivia Newton-John To Postpone Performances

Share

Chiropractor, Dr. Alexander Jimenez looks at how sciatica can affect what you do and where you go.

Popular songstress hears her “Body Talk” and finds “Let’s Get Physical” challenging due to low back and leg pain.

In the event you suffer from sciatica, you may have to take time off work due to debilitating leg pain and low back. That’s just what occurred to Olivia Newton-John, who postponed her May 2017 performances because of sciatica flare up.

A statement posted on the star’s official Facebook page said, “We are so sorry to announce the Olivia concerts scheduled for May will be postponed due to a issue that is negative with Olivia’s sciatica.”

In a Facebook post that was separate, Newton John expressed disappointment at having to postpone the shows, but that the symptoms wouldn’t allow her to perform. “I have had a long running issue with sciatica, ” she wrote. “I need to take this time with this very debilitating condition.”

Sciatica’s hallmark symptoms of intense low back and leg pain make it among the most well known spinal issues. Individuals who have sciatica frequently describe their pain as electrical-like as it runs in the buttock down and down the trunk of the thigh to the foot. Moving your legs often makes the pain worse performing all night as Newton-John her pain would have during her concerts may have greatly intensified.

Newton-John’s choice to take time to handle her sciatica is an excellent example for anyone who lives with acute low back and leg pain. Avoiding activities that aggravate your sciatica and focusing on mild activities and other treatments go a long way to lower your pain.
