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.
Sciatic Nerve Pain Stretches Exercises Ask Doctor Jo
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.
