Your #3 sciatica stretch is the Neurodynamic stretch. This stretch will work on your hamstring, calf muscle and your sciatic nerve. It is important to have mobility of your sciatic nerve and this stretch will help do that.
To do this stretch you must have a belt or towel to wrap around your foot.
Start position: Find a nice firm flat surface and lay down on your back. In the picture above Dr. Amy is using a mat table, but if you don’t have one of these you can either use your floor or your bed as your flat surface.
How to do the Neurodynamic Stretch:
You should feel a nice stretch along the hamstrings and calf allowing you to increase your mobility of the sciatic nerve.
This is just one in our Series of Free Sciatica Stretches that we offer to everyone to help relieve their Sciatica pain! If you would like to see a video of Dr. Amy perform the stretch, as well as receive the other stretches in the series, just fill out the form on this page!
At the Illinois Back Institute we strive to educate everyone as much as possible about their back pain and sciatica, because it is proven that the more people know about their problem the more likely they are to eliminate it!
