Sciatic pain is one of the worst kinds of chronic pain I think I’ve ever dealt with on a recurring basis. I had sciatica pain on and off for years. And when it would flare up, I remember feeling so helpless. Like there didn’t seem to be anything I could do to find relief, or any position I could put myself in that would help. Well guess what? There ARE things you can do for immediate and long term sciatica pain relief. In this video I show you the stretches and exercises that have helped me personally to overcome my sciatica pain – pain I suffered with for YEARS! I’m excited to share these exercises and stretches with you, because I believe they will help you too.
In this video I explain what the sciatic nerve is, and I discuss two of the most common causes of sciatica pain – bulging disc and piriformis syndrome. I explain these causes in detail and I show you specific stretches and exercises that helped me personally overcome years of sciatica pain due to these causes.
It’s important to note that there are other less common causes of sciatica pain, and If you’ve never had a medical professional look at your particular problem, it’s a good idea to do so since that may change which exercises are most appropriate for you.
