55. Fix Your Dog's Sciatica with Dr. Ashley Mak

As many as 40% of humans will experience sciatica in their life, which is pain radiating along the sciatic nerve, which runs down one or both legs from the lower back. The sciatic nerve is the longest nerve in both humans and dogs, so unfortunately our dogs are also prone to experiencing sciatic nerve pain and injury. In this episode of Your Natural Dog with Angela Ardolino, we’re joined by Dr. Ashley Mak, physical therapist, certified strength and conditioning specialist, and founder of IFixYourSciatica.com, who believes that both people and pets can live pain-free without the use of surgery and medications. Dr. Mak joins me to discuss the sciatic nerve, sciatica in dogs, and physical therapy for dogs with nerve pain.
