1-Minute Exercises To Relieve Sciatica Effectively

Truly a pain in the butt, sciatica can render your day a disaster. The discomfort may be felt anywhere along the length of the sciatic nerve, which extends from the lower back and down each leg, passing through the hips and buttocks. Many sufferers feel pain in the lower back to the buttock, which radiates to the back of the thigh and calf muscles. Usually only one side of your body is affected.

For some individuals, sciatic nerve pain presents itself as a dull ache, while others experience sciatic pain as a sudden and intense shock. Sitting for long periods can aggravate symptoms.

Sufferers of sciatitica agree, the condition can be difficult to treat. And once the symptoms set in, it’s hard to find a more comfortable position to sit in, because the condition affects such a large part of the lower body.

The following stretch series can provide some pain relief. They’re quick and easy to complete. Be sure to check with your doctor first!

Begin seated on the floor with your legs stretched out in front of you. Bending your right knee, pull your right heel toward your right buttock. Hold for 10 seconds. Repeat this stretch on your left leg.

        End the series with a forward fold. Extend both legs in front of you and pull your torso toward your legs, reaching for your toes. Hold the stretch for 10 seconds.
