This book reveals the real cause of sciatica and how you can treat it simply and effectively at home. Do you suffer from back pain that radiates out into your legs? You are not alone. Roughly one in three people suffers from the same. Traditionally, doctors automatically suspect a slipped disc but intervertebral discs aren't always to blame. In many cases, there is an infection in the piriformis muscles that presses on the sciatic nerve that is causing the pain. If piriformis syndrome is recognised early, it can be much more precisely and effectively treated than, for instance, a slipped disc. Even simple stretching exercises have proven astonishingly effective.

Katharina Brinkmann is the founder of YOU Personal Training. In addition to being a yoga instructor and personal trainer, she is also a sports therapist. Amongst other things, her work focuses on fascia and mobility training, which she successfully combines in her book Yoga - Fascia Training.

Nicolai Napolski is Editor in Chief of trainingsworld.com, the largest German portal for sports experts. An enthusiastic snowboarder, mountain biker and climber, he is no stranger to injuries! After weeks of consulting doctors, he was diagnosed with piriformis syndrome by a physiotherapist. On realising that relatively little information was available on this topic, he was inspired to work with Katharina Brinkmann on this book.
