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.

Chiropractic Bedford NS Back Pain and Sciatica
My name is Dr Clayton Roach chiropractor and owner of Roach Chiropractic Centre we’ve got a fantastic tutorial ahead for you cause we’re gonna be talking about a major common back condition called sciatica now you may have heard that from a friend maybe you experienced it yourself we’re gonna discuss the top three reasons why it happens here’s the first one the most common condition that we see here in our office is what is called a subluxation now a subluxation in an area of the spine that’s not moving.
Well creating pressure and you can call it chaos in that area of the spine so in your lower back you can see here that you have five lumbar vertebraes L1, L2, L3, L4 and L5 that sit on top of what we call our pelvis our sacrum inner SI joints the ileum all the parts that make up the pelvis so what can happen in a case of a subluxation you can have a pelvis that is out of alignment you could have a lumbar vertebra is rotated creating nerve irritation creating muscle tension.
And all of a sudden over the years this condition because of not being cared for starts to get worse and that nerve starts to get more and more irritated and travels down that path either going you know to the back of the leg and may be a little bit to the side of the leg most commonly sciatica will create pain pins and needles sensation maybe numbness in the back of the thigh going down the side of the leg and even into the foot so that is definitely the number one.
Reason why we see patients here with sciatica is because of dysfunction in the spine the number two reason is a condition involving that disc so in between these vertebrae there’s going to be a little bit of a cushion that we call the disc and inside the disc you can imagine the disc almost like a boston cream dooughnut and the outside of the doughnut contains the cream now what were to happen if you poked a hole in the doughnut and you pushed on the doughnut obviously the cream is going to come out for so the disc is almost.
Formed that way although it’s not cream the inside of the disc is water and protein and all kinds of little nutrients and as the outside of the disc starts to weaken the inside of the disc where the water is starts to leak out and connect with that nerve and irritate the nerve no why do we have disc problems back to reason number one if you have a subluxation and an area of dysfunction in the spine that disc is gonna wear and tear and all of a sudden.
You may get what’s called a disc herniation or what people call a slipped disc the last reason why people have sciatica it can be from the sciatic nerve which comes out from the lower back okay and that sciatic nerve is impinged upon by a muscle in the lower extremity so in the buttock area there is a muscle called the piriformis so that muscle lays right in through buttock and because of what we do for a living which a lot of the time is sitting and all kinds of repetitive lifting that muscle can start.
To tighten up and put direct pressure right on that sciatic nerve so just a review the sciatic nerve can get irritated by a condition is the spine or it can get irritated a little further down by muscles in the lower extremity that are too tight and compressing directly on that nerve if you love this information you received today in this tutorial do one thing click on the provided link go to our website and enter your name and email so that you can receive our free report if you feel compelled to make an appointment today you’ll see our phone number.
Sciatica discussed by Dr. Stephen Hochschuler at Texas Back Institute SpineHealth
Good morning, I am Stephen Hochschuler, spine surgeon, cofounder of the Texas Back Institute, and a consultant to spinehealth. I’ve been asked today to speak about sciatica and preliminary treatment of such. Sciatica is when a patient is suffering from impingement or pressure on a nerve, which causes pain to go down the extremity oftentimes to the foot. This can be caused by one of several things. It could be caused by a herniated disc, it could be caused by spinal stenosis, which is a tightening of the spinal canal, it could be caused by a spondylolisthesis, which is a slip of one vertebrae on another,.
Or pretty much anything that puts pressure on a nerve that causes pain down the leg. Other things that would be included would be a tumor, a growth, an infection, a cancer, etc. One treats the initial onset of sciatica conservatively, and by that I mean simple things, such as ice for the first 24 to 48 hours, heat thereafter, for the next 48 hours perhaps, the heat increasing the circulation to the area and getting away some of the metabolites, the cold helping with some of the pain. In addition to which we often use certain overthecounter.
Medications, which include things like Tylenol, which include things like Advil, or Aleve. Certain amount of exercise is necessary. We do not believe in bed rest for more than 24, maximum 48 hours. Exercise should be nonweight bearing, such as a stationary bicycle, or a swimming pool, something that doesn’t put excess strength or stress on the affected area. Occasionally, surgery is necessary. Prior to surgery, one must make a definitive diagnosis however, of what is going on, and this often will require an MRI scan, a myelogram, or a myelogram followed by a CT scan. Initially, if there isn’t a dangerous problem occurring,.
