Sciatica Stretches For Pain Relief

Try these simple stretches suggested by Tacoma chiropractors to get relief in sciatica pain

Sciatica is a condition characterized by pain, numbness, or weakness that radiates along the sciatic nerve, which runs from the lower back down the back of each leg. Sciatica can be caused by a variety of factors such as a herniated disk, spinal stenosis, or degeneration of the spine.

Stretches To Relieve Sciatic Pain

Stretching can be an effective way to alleviate the symptoms of sciatica and improve mobility. Some common stretches for sciatica include:

Hamstring Stretch

Sit on the floor with one leg extended and the other bent. Lean forward, reaching your hands toward your toes on the extended leg.

Piriformis Stretch

Lie on your back and bring your knee up to your chest. Cross the affected leg over the other leg, and gently pull the knee towards the opposite shoulder.

Pigeon Pose

Start on your hands and knees, then bring one knee forward and place it behind the opposite hand. Lower your hips towards the ground, keeping the back leg extended behind you.

Lumbar Stretch

Sit on the edge of a chair, with your feet flat on the ground. Place your hands on your knees and gently lean forward, keeping your back straight.

Be Safe When Doing Stretches

Collaborate with your chiropractor to make sure the stretches and exercises you’re performing are tailored to your particular needs. If a stretch is causing you pain, don’t force yourself into difficult positions; only do what feels comfortable in your body. For those who suffer from back issues, be sure to discuss any potential stretching or exercising regimens with their chiropractor first.
