Stretch of the Week: Sciatica Stretch

This all-in-one stretch focuses on your butt, piriformis, hamstrings, sciatic nerve, and lower back.


Howdy! Dr. Parson here. We're going to do a common stretch that has many varieties, many ways to do this. But this is one that's commonly given. It stretches your butt, your piriformis, your hamstrings, your ITB band, and your back. It's a great one for the sciatic nerve, commonly prescribed. But there are some nuances here okay. First, reach through and grab this leg right there, and pull with both hands so pull. Now, you're stretching the right hip and you should be able to feel that right there a little bit. But, a lot of people can't do this for various reasons, so we're gonna help. Alright, so a good partner could turn on the TV and watch this while they help while you sit there in the struggle. She'll tell you when to quit so if you want more push away/push towards me. Or, you can put this foot up on the wall while and someone can stand up and really enjoy the TV more. This needs to be done for a long time. Many times, these stretches are done too quickly, but they really need to be 30 seconds to a minute...and hold. Alright, thanks!
