Sciatica Pain Relief
In this quick video, Dr. Rowe (St. Joseph, MI chiropractor) shows a helpful exercise to help give sciatica pain relief. Give it a try today!
HERE'S AN EASY WAY TO GET SCIATIC NERVE RELIEF ⠀⠀
The sciatic nerve is the most common nerve issue I see at SpineCare in St. Joseph, MI. It's a major cause of sharp, shooting pains in the lower back, butt, legs, and feet.⠀⠀
A sciatic nerve floss is a super easy way to help relive tension to this nerve. This particular one can be done at home, since no equipment is needed and it can be done on any flat surface (including in bed).⠀⠀
HOW TO GET RELIEF:⠀
Lie flat on the back, bend the hip to 90 degrees⠀
Try to straighten the leg as far as feels comfortable⠀
Bend the ankle forwards and backwards ⠀
Progress by straightening the leg even more⠀
There should be a good stretch felt in the back of the leg. Continue doing this movement until a good release of tension on the sciatic nerve is felt.⠀
Please note that this SHOULD NOT make pain worse. It should not be excruciating or reproduce numbness or tingling. Simply put, do not go further than the body is able to go. Some won't be able to extend the knee all the way at first, so work into it slowly.
If the sciatic nerve pain is debilitating, it's always best to get a professional opinion. CALL US ANYTIME ... we're experienced at treating sciatica and low back pain.⠀⠀
Don't forget to spread the good word with someone that needs some help with sciatica. Questions or comments? Hit me up!⠀
