Exercise Program of the Month: Relief for Sciatica Pain There is plenty of research that shows keeping your hips loose can not only prevent common back problems, but also to help provide relief during a painful episode. Below are two important stretches. For best results, please perform this routine three times per week. If you or someone that you know has a painful back problem or sciatica that persists for more than one week, give us a call today. Pain is not a normal way of life.

SEATED CHAIR STRETCH: While sitting in a chair, cross your leg on top of the other as shown. Next, gently lean forward until a stretch is felt along the crossed leg’s buttock/ hip, and hold for 30 seconds. Perform on each side.

PIRIFORMIS STRETCH – MODIFIED: While lying on your back, hold your knee with your opposite hand and draw your knee up and over towards your opposite shoulder until a gentle stretch is felt in your buttock. Hold for 30 seconds, and also perform on the other side.
