Hey y’all, it’s Doctor Jo and my assistant with me today is Bailey again. And today I’m going to be talking about your piriformis. So lots of times I hear people say they’ve got that sciatic nerve, well actually everybody has a sciatic nerve, but you can have pain coming from that nerve, and a lot of times that piriformis muscle is causing the pain. So we’re gonna show you some stretches to stretch out your piriformis and hopefully get rid of that sciatic nerve pain. Alright let’s go on to our backs. Here we go. I think.
We’re gonna maybe move Bailey out of the way. In the first stretch for your piriformis is a pretty simple one. A lot of pictures you may get from your therapist will actually show one leg down, I actually like for you to have it staying up so you can prop your foot over it. So your gonna make almost like a figure 4 with your legs and then what you’re gonna do, the side that’s hurting, so my left side is hurting, I’m gonna cross that leg over. And what I’m gonna do is I’m gonna bring my knee with my opposite hand towards my shoulder.
Over here. So I’m pulling this leg up and across my body. And what you wanna do same kind of thing with all the stretches, you wanna pull and you wanna feel a stretch under there. Soon as you feel a really good stretch you wanna hold it for 30 seconds. So remember up and across the body. Just coming up is not gonna get that piriformis stretch. But coming up and across the body like I’m trying to bring that knee towards my shoulder. Holding it there for about 30 secondsa real 30 seconds. And then coming back down and you wanna do.
That 3 times. Now the next one to do, sometimes this is a little harder for people, but what your gonna do is your gonna keep that same figure 4, and what your gonna do is your gonna take your hands and on the opposite side that it’s hurting, so the hurting side is still up crossed over it’s still my left side. I’m gonna take my hands and put them underneath my thigh, and I’m gonna bring my leg up, and I’m gonna pull until I feel that stretch underneath.
There. Now some people might have a hard time grabbing on to their leg here, so again you can use your belt, or your dog leash and put it under, around your leg, and pull up towards you like this. Same kind of thing, you want to hold that stretch for 30 secondsbye Bailey, we’ll see you later and then 3 times each. Alright, so now you’re gonna bring that down getting it nice and stretched. For those of you that need a stronger stretch, those might not be stretching it out quite as much, what I’m gonna have you do is I’m gonna have you.
Turn over. And what your gonna do is the side that’s hurt again, my left side, I’m gonna bring my leg up across. Now as you can see, this is something you have to be pretty high level, pretty flexible to do, but it’s gonna get a fantastic stretch. So your gonna put your knee over across your body, and bring your body down. So it’s almost that same concept, you’re bringing that knee towards the opposite shoulder, but what you’re doing now, is you’re using your body weight to bring it down. You can stretch that back leg as far as you can.
You can bring your arms down, but that knee is essentially going towards that opposite shoulder. 30 second stretch, 3 times each. Alright and there you have it. Those were your piriformis stretches. So if you had some pressure on that sciatic nerve, hopefully that will loosen it up a little bit. So if you like my hair, or if you like the stretches, please click like and leave me a comment. And if you’d like to see some more stretch tutorials, or if you’d like to go see some educational tutorials, please go to AskDoctorJo. And.

It should be know that the majority of people who come to see me as patients who have been diagnosed with sciatica, don’t have true sciatica. They do have leg pain that is mimicking sciatica. In other words, it is running through the buttocks and down the thight, right down to the ankle but it stems from a different place. It’s not the sciatic nerve. It is from a tight muscle in the buttocks,.
Known as the piriformis muscle. It clamps down over the sciatic nerve giving you sciaticlike symtoms. par You chiropractor can tell the difference between these two. True sciatica and a piriformis muscle problem. I’m going to show you a stretch to get rid of the piriformis muscle problem and the resultant leg pain. If you do this stretch and notice your leg pain starting to decrease, you probably didn’t have true sciatica and that’s great, because sciatica is harder to treat. par So you want to sit fairly close to the wall and swing your legs up so your heels touch.
The wall. If you leg pain is on the left, then take your left ankle and place it over your left knee. Now some of you might find that this position is already very difficult to get into because your piriformis muscle has become very tight. If you want to increase the stretch, shuffle up closer to the wall with your buttocks. If you want to deepen the stretch yet again, slide your right foot down the wall so that your knee is bent. You can increase the stretch by gently bringing the left knee toward your opposite shoulder. That is the.
Sciatica Pain Relief and Treatment How To Relieve Sciatica Pain
Sciatica Pain Relief and Treatment How To Relieve Sciatica Pain At the end of this tutorial, you will find a very simple solution that will relieve you from sciatica pain.So what is sciatica Sciatica is a common condition that occurs in people with lower back damage, but the medication prescribed to relieve the pain associated with sciatica often differs between patients.Why does sciatica pain occur The sciatic nerve runs from the back of your pelvis and continues through each buttock down the leg and all the way to the foot and toes in fact, the sciatic nerve is the longest nerve in the human body.
If the sciatic nerve is compressed such as from a slipped or herniated disc or if the nerve is irritated, it can result in pain along with a tingling sensation or numbness that radiates from the lower back down the leg and to the foot. There may be general back pain, but pain from a sciatic nerve is usually felt more in the buttocks and legs. What selfhelp measures can be used for reducing sciatic painSciatic pain may go away naturally, often within 6 to 12 weeks for many people, but in others only after a year or longer.
Initial selfhelp measures include Exercise Remaining as active as possible is important because inactivity can make the symptoms worse according to the British Association of Spine Surgeons. All the research during the past decade indicates that resting up may prolong the time it takes to recover from back pain. The NHS recommends walking, gentle stretching and other simple exercises to help reduce the severity of the symptoms as well as strengthen the back muscles. Hot compression pack Using a hot compression pack, available from a pharmacy, on the painful area may provide some pain relief.
Overthecounter painkillers Paracetamol is preferred but also nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drugs such as ibuprofen can be effective in providing pain relief. What treatments may be prescribed for sciatic pain For people who experience a longer period of sciatic pain, doctors may prescribe medication that can help relieve the pain and help keep them mobile. However, these medicines affect people differently, so it is difficult for doctors to know which ones to prescribe. However, doctors may have to prescribe other treatments before they find one that helps. Among the prescribed medications for treating sciatic pain are Opioid analgesics such as codeine, dihydrocodeine or tramadol, or a short course of morphine. Benzodiazepines such as diazepam for spasms in the paraspinal muscles.
Tricyclic antidepressants including amitriptyline these were originally designed to treat depression but they also provide relief from nerve pain. Anticonvulsants such as gabapentin or pregabalin these were originally designed to treat epilepsy but have also been found useful for treating nerve pain, and are an option if the pain is not responding to traditional analgesics. Spinal injections with a corticosteroid or local anaesthetic to deliver medication directly to the inflamed area around the nerve. Good news. I have a special deal for you. Below this tutorial is a special program that will enable you treat sciatica within 7 days or less.
Sciatica and low back pain treated with Applied Kinesiology
My name is Stefania Cardinale, I’m 33 years old. In the year 2000, I was in a motorcycle accident. I was on the back seat and a car sideswiped us. The right side of my body was hit, especially my leg. In recent years, I’ve been suffering from various types of pain, mainly on the right side of my body. Nowadays, I can’t stand for very long, nor can I wear highheeled shoes. This provokes pain in my back and leg. The pain is constant. It’s generally mild but it is always there.
My right leg is very weak. There is pain over one spot in particular right on my spinal column. It feels like a constant bruise, even though I’ve never had a direct blow to this area. I’ve been on birth control pills since 18 years old. I have other symptoms like abdominal bloating and indigestion. I am frequently thirsty, so I drink a lot of water. The following are the highlights of the first examination and treatment of Stefania by Dr. Robert Morrison. The entire visit of approximately 45 minutes has been edited for the viewer.
There’s a saying that The body never lies. This is why we analyze posture. It is the language of the body. By analyzing posture, we can gain a lot of information about a patient in just a few seconds. By placing my hands on her pelvis, we see an imbalance the right side is higher than the left. The left shoulder is higher than the right. The right hand hangs lower than the left. The right ear is higher than the left. Does this hurt your low back Yes it pulls here.
Try the other side. This is much easier right Yes. MANUAL MUSCLE TESTING Now, we want to find out which muscles are functioning neurologically and which aren’t. More specifically, if individual muscles are neurologically inhibited they won’t support the bones and joints. This side locks as it should. But this side doesn’t resist the test pressure. This is very important because if the ankle is not stable, there will be repercussions throughout her body. Push. Push harder Stefania. This muscle is inhibited. However, if she touches this muscle where it attaches to the pelvic bone,.
Push up and out the muscle gains strength. This is because when there is a physical trauma, muscles are injured right where they attach to bone. So as she touches the area of injury Push the muscle regains its strength. Without touching it Push out and up the muscle is weak. Very little strength here also. But if she touches the muscle’s attachment to bone, it becomes stronger. Push. harder.she lacks strength in this muscle also, but if she touches the muscle’s attachment to bone.Push.it regains strength.
MANUAL THERAPY What I am doing now isn’t exactly a massage. Rather we are activating neurological reflex mechanisms within the tendons. When a muscle is injured, these receptors become shortcircuited and stay that way for years. What I am doing is reactivating the neurological pathways. Now we’ve turned this muscle back on. It’s much more solid now. It’s just like the other side. Very strong now. There is still work to be done, but this is just a brief demonstration of how it all works. For an injury such as this, we have to be very thorough and cover all areas.
KINESIOLOGY TEST DIAGNOSIS Now her hand is on her left sacroiliac joint. Push touching it makes her lose force Push. This tells me that there is a problem with the left sacroiliac joint. MANUAL MOBILIZATION THERAPY Does this hurt Stefania Yes. Here is the area that she spoke about. This is the 12th thoracic vertebra. Many believe that when you go to a chiropractor you get your bones cracked. While it’s true that we perform highvelocity adjustments for numerous therapeutic benefits, we also utilize lowforce methods when indicated.
This is what we’ll use on Stefania because she requested this. I am positioning these wedges to mobilize her left pelvic bone back into alignment. We’ll leave it like this for a couple of minutes and let gravity do its work. EVALUATING THE RESULTS Now she is aligned. BEFORE AND AFTER Her shoulders are much more even compared to before. Her ears are also more level. How does it feel You’re bending much better now. Yes it seems so. Try the other side. OK more balanced now. Our goal is always to create equilibrium.

Here. One,two,three and do as many as you can to loosen up the pain. Other stretch you can do is sit on the chair similar but turn sideways, similar but just pull your leg this way towards you and you’ll get the same stretch all down here on the butt This way one two make sure you push this down closer towards you and this area here is straight like such. One two three. Ok those are the two stretch and if it still doesn’t work! First thing you need to do then is to loosen up the area here. To loosen up.
The area what I normally do is I lift my leg up.turn this way like such. Front view turn to the left exaggerate a little bit, lift up higher turn to the left then lift up turn to the right. That way it creates movement and loosens up the whole area there. And if still aches, use your finger pad put pressure right onto the pain area and turn left, goto the next area right left right. Put a little pressure press into it left right in and out. These are the three technique that I would do and I recommend my client to do it. So.

You will be lying on your front. Your skin will be cleaned. A small needle will be used to inject some local anesthetic to numb the skin. This may sting for a couple of seconds. The tip of a needle will be placed next to the spinal nerve. Fluoroscopy, an XRay TV, is often used to guide the needle to the correct location. Some contrast dye may be injected to check the exact position of the needle tip using fluoroscopy. Then the medication will be injected around the spinal nerve, the needle removed and a small bandage placed.
