Adele opened up about her struggles with Sciatica during her performance on New Year’s Eve on Saturday, December 31, as part of her Las Vegas Residency.
“I have to waddle these days as I have really bad sciatica,” Adele said as she moved from one side of the stage at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace, according to a report by Cosmopolitan.
According to the Mayo Clinic, Sciatica refers to pain that travels along the path of the sciatic nerve. The sciatic nerve travels from the lower back through the hips and buttocks and down each leg.
Sciatica most often occurs when a herniated disk or an overgrowth of bone puts pressure on part of the nerve. This causes inflammation, pain and often some numbness in the affected leg. Sciatica usually gets better in four to six weeks but can last longer.
Adele had previously talked about living with back pain. “I’ve been in pain with my back for, like, half of my life, really. It flares up, normally due to stress or from a stupid bit of posture,” she told The Face last year.
“I slipped my first disc when I was 15 from sneezing,” Adele added. “I was in bed and I sneezed and my fifth one flew out. In January, I slipped my sixth one, my L6. And then where I had a C-section, my core was useless. But where I got my tummy strong, down at the bottom, which I never had before, my back don’t play up as much.”
