Adele is still one of the most brilliant female singers in the industry today. However, Adele seems to be a warrior when it comes to her health. Adele recently spoke about her struggles with “bad sciatica” and the measures she is taking to overcome it.

During a successful Weekend with Adele’s residency at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, Adele admitted that it might be challenging to maneuver around the stage. According to Cosmopolitan UK, the 34-year-old Grammy winner opened up to the audience during her New Year’s Eve performance over the weekend, saying, “I have to waddle these days as I have really bad sciatica.”

According to the Cleveland Clinic, sciatica is a disorder of the lower back brought on by “irritation, inflammation, pinching, or compression” of the sciatic nerve. Adele discussed her back pain in a 2021 interview with The Face, as well as the reasons behind it.

“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.”

“I slipped my first disc when I was 15 from sneezing. 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 c-section, my core was useless.”

She did, however, mention that exercising and developing her core had undoubtedly benefited her lower back problems. Despite her discomfort, Adele seems to have breezed through her residency, which began in November 2022 after being postponed from January 2022 owing to COVID-19 issues.

Even after experiencing a back problem, Adele developed a passion for trekking. Midway through December, Adele said to her audience, “Guess what I’ve started doing.” She went on to say how much she loves her creative outlet.

“I’ve started hiking. I really like it. I put my headphones on and get on with it. I’m out of breath. This is a stadium-sized theatre, it’s quite a walk.”

Adele has exhibited a positive outlook when interacting with her fans, despite ongoing back problems. For instance, she voiced her surprise when a fan videotaped them taking a selfie with a filter over their faces during a gig in November.

“Is there a filter on that? What have you done to my face! Woah, girl! Get that filter off my face!”

Adele sobbed thereafter, overjoyed by the fortunate encounter, as she hugged her fan. At a concert at the start of December, she even handled a fan trying to give her their phone number with professionalism, promptly returning the digits and continuing the performance.
