A disease that torments Adele. Statements made by the singer

The stars are also not spared from suffering. Recently, singer Adele (34 years old) reported that she was experiencing serious back pain and was diagnosed with sciatica.

"I've been dragging myself around more lately because I suffer from sciatica," Adele said during her performance at the Colosseum on New Year's Eve.

In addition, the singer had problems with her back for a long time. Adele first opened up about her chronic back problems in an interview with The Face in 2021.

“My first disc changed position when I was 15 due to sneezing. I was lying in bed and sneezing heavily. Then my fifth disc slipped. The next month my second disc also slipped. I have lived more than half of my life with pain. “Due to stress or poor posture, back pain periodically worsens,” the singer testified.

The star also said that playing sports and losing weight helped her cope with pain and enjoy life with her son more.

What is sciatica and why does it occur?

The common disease sciatica occurs when the roots of the sciatic nerve in the lumbar or lumbosacral region become inflamed. Causes that can cause sciatica include impacts to the lower back or spine, pregnancy (due to pressure on the lower back), or muscle spasms.

Other causes are degenerative diseases that affect the discs that act as cushions between the vertebrae, lumbar spinal stenosis, that is, narrowing of the spinal canals, or spondylolisthesis, or rather the sliding of one vertebra over another.

People who are overweight, sedentary, have poor posture, or perform certain strenuous activities have a higher risk of developing sciatica.

Sciatica is characterized by pain that may appear in the lower back, hip, or lower leg. You may also experience: a tingling sensation in the leg, weakness or numbness of the limb.

Various types of treatment are used for sciatica, depending on the severity. In more severe cases, anti-inflammatory drugs, steroid injections, or surgery may be recommended.
