Sciatica pain is no one’s friend. I’m betting you’ve tried a lot of different ways to relieve your sciatica pain, and if you are looking at this they haven’t worked yet. Well below you will find a FREE guide to stretches that can be done in 60 seconds, and help correct some of the issues that could be causing your sciatica pain.
Sitting on the floor with your back straight and your legs directly in front of you, pull your right knee toward your chest. It’s important to keep the heel of your left foot on the floor to get the best stretch. Hold this stretch for 10 seconds.
While still in the sitting position, switch legs and pull your left knee toward your chest. Be sure that the heel of your right foot stays on the floor for the best results. Hold the stretch for 10 seconds.
Laying with your back flat on the floor, bend your knees and keep your knees and ankles. Place your arms flat on the floor next to your body with palms down, this will help stabilize your core during this exercise. Lift and lower your legs as a unit without allowing your feet to touch the floor. Repeat this motion 5 times.
This time, keep the heel of your right foot on the floor as you pull your left leg toward your chest. By laying flat on your back rather than sitting up as we did in the first exercise we will stretch a different set of muscles.
Lastly, you want to sit up again with both legs stretched out in front of you. With your arms straight out, lean forward toward your toes. Be sure not to bend your knees to get the best stretch possible. Hold this for 10 seconds.
There! Hopefully this has been helpful in relieving some of the tension that can cause your sciatica pain.
