3 Types of Sciatica Stretches that Will Relieve Your Back Pain

Posted by Dr. Jeff Winternheimer D.C. on Thu, May 29, 2014 @ 10:48 AM

Sciatica pain stems from pressure on and/or irritation of the sciatic nerve. The nerve emanates from both sides of the lower spine, through the pelvic area and the buttocks, down the back of the thighs. The nerve splits at the knee forming branches extending to the feet. Pain can stretch all along this route and may be mild and achy or sharp and burning, often accompanied by pins-and-needles sensations.

Sciatica Stretches Tip #9 Hip Flexor Stretch

Posted by Dr. Jeff Winternheimer D.C. on Wed, Mar 19, 2014 @ 12:30 PM

Your #8 Sciatica Stretch is the Hip Flexor Stretch. The hip flexor is made up of the psoas and illiacus muscles; collectively called the iliopsoas muscle. These muscles are attached to the pelvis and lumbar spine. Therefore, if these muscles are tight, it will alter posture and body mechanics. Prolong sitting will increase tightness in the hip flexor muscles. Therefore, it is important to increase flexibility of the iliopsoas muscle in order to decrease severity of low back pain and sciatica symptoms.
