Greetings again! This is Athena Jezik. We’re gonna work on some more tutorials and explain some things out. Sciatica seems to be a problem that many many people suffer from so i thought i would go through a little bit more sciatica work and explanation on how i deal with sciatica. There’s many different techniques that people have but for me this has been the most effective and i’m also learning that there’s different types of things that come from that area. Sciatica usually is pain coming from about here. When it’s real bad it will run down the leg. It’s a.
Nerve pain so it runs as though it’s a like a hot iron or a hot rod going down the leg. Very uncomfortable. Sometimes there’s pain though in other parts of the hip which isn’t really the classic sciatica but it does still involve things similar because there’s so many nerves that come out of this sacral area. So that’s another thing that i’ve been discovering. So not everything that happens with the pain and going down the leg is maybe the classic sciatica but it doesn’t matter because in my opinion naming a lot of things doesn’t really do anything except for.
Make it a disease and then a disease is only by law treatable by the western medical people. So that’s just names and labels. The thing is we want to get people out of pain. We want to move them into a space of being able to function well. So in that pain area of the hip impinging nerves and creating bad sensation or pain down the leg we’ll call that the sciatica pain and of course it comes from here and I find that it is always got a direct connection to the positioning of the sacrum.
That also has a direct connection to the position of the sphenoid bone at the occipital base and I’m gonna show you a little bit of this. I’ll just show it to you now. Excuse me it’s early in the morning and I’m kind of foggy today. So the sacrum is sitting here and in that sacral bone there is a lot of nerves that come out from here. These little holes are where they come out of so if that is position a little bit crooked on there, which happens quite a.
Bit then we’re gonna have this pressure. The nerves are not going to be coming out with the proper alignment and the nerves are gonna have pressure on them when they are twisted a little bit. sometimes this bone can be in a position that’s a little more like this or it can also be an a combination of that particular pattern so it’s important to be able to allow this bone to be able to lengthen down. This is something better done if the body can do it itself. If it’s forced into it, it doesn’t always mean that it’s going to hold.
Because there’s a bunch of stuff underneath there. The network of the facial structure, the membranes under that that will twist like a nylon stocking and so if it’s forced back it will go back but because of the underlying structures there it will pull it back into that odd position. This is translating up into the head and because I’m a cranial sacral therapist and I’ve been doing it for so many years I have a lot of understanding how these connections are made. So right in there where the.
Purple and the yellow come together is the sphenobasilar junction. The sphenoid bone is the yellow bone right here and so that bone touches all the other bones and it does relate directly to the sacrum at this joint. So if this sacral structure is sideways, crooked on there, that’s going to be placed and it’s going to be like so The same thing is gonna happen at at the head. This sphenoid bone is going to be out in a similar manner because it’s a counterbalance for what’s going on with the body. So it keeps.
Things balanced so that we feel somewhat straight. So that’s areas that I look for in work around low back pain particularly down in the sacral area. I do not like to do the hard pushing with the elbow. For one thing You can get through muscles that way but your elbows are not very sensitive as to what you’re really doing and what structures you’re on and i have found that when i’ve tried to work elbows even forearms the bones and the bony surfaces. it’s just too rough. I don’t feel good about it. It.
Doesn’t feel productive so I don’t use that method. Also sometimes when the nerve is affected there’s inflammation. So in my opinion the way that I see things is by driving yourself into that nerve, through those muscles with a bunch of inflammation going on is not really going to help the problem. So there’s little things like that that I pay attention to that I don’t know if many other people take a lot of that into account because we do get sort of a technique to loosen things up and.
It doesn’t always provide for us the thoughts of what’s happening at the subtle anatomy level. So I test this just by checking at the occipital base and at the sacrum to see the position of everything and once the position is established then I can go in and work with the sacrum in order to correct it. Sometimes this will be corrected quickly and sometimes it’s not corrected as quickly and I believe that a lot of that is because it’s maybe not a true quote sciatica but there’s other stuff going on maybe in the hip joint.
There might be some kind of misalignment in the pubic arch. There might be some kind of a rotation in the hip as well so other things have to happen. So here I’m just giving a little drag on the sacrum and letting it loosen up and letting it swim around and my other hand is at the occipital base. Just steadying the dural tube. And so there I just wait a little while and then I will soften the muscle area around there. I work really differently. It just kind of depends.
So much of my work is intuitive. There’s somewhat of a protocol that I follow but each person presents things differently. No two bodies are ever the same. No injury patterns are ever the same. So flexibility is important to be able to move from various techniques and not follow things too rigidly particularly in pain problems and issues Then the other thing that i will do is to get my finger at the base of the sacrum. Excuse me, at L5 S1, which is right in this area here L5 S1.
So try to put some distance between there because that’s where the jamming probably tends to be. Sometimes it’s at the coccyx. And I’ll show you that technique as well. So with that you just do a little stretching integrating in with the muscles integrating in with the tissues and then just waiting for it to move. This is going face down. There is a better way to do the sacral pull when they are on their back but this way will also open it up. Either way is fine and my other hand up here is also feeling some rotation and.
Some movement coming up the spine. So as one area of the spine is off every little vertebrae is affected to some degree. There’s a little bit of adjustment that they have to make in order to keep the misalignment aligned and the bodies just gonna do that it’s gonna work within the framework that it has and it’s gonna normalize whether a pattern is there. And so there now we’re getting it softened and now there’s a little bit of a stretch happening. I’m stretching downward with the hand that’s on the L5 S1.
And I am taking a little bit of a stretch upward. Just a little traction. No deeper than the fascial level. So we have skin, fluid, then fascia. So I’m three layers down and giving a little stretch there and i’m feeling quite a bit of rumbling going on and there is a separation happening between L5 S1 And it just swims around and the sacrum is trying right now to find its way back to the proper position. It’s a good idea, if you know cranial work to also balance it at the spenoid.
Level because the sphenoid bone, if not corrected, can pull this thing out. Sometimes this will correct the sphenoid bone but it’s a good idea to check both. She just had a couple pulses. There’s a lot of activity going on. Even though she’s not suffering from sciatica or any kind of hip serious pain problems there’s still a lot of activity going on, which is correcting little misalignments in there, which is a reason that we should be paying attention to maintenance. Even though we’re not hurting, we might wanna have.
Some kind of session just for tweaking. I see a number of people who come in regularly every four to six weeks just to be tweaked with cranial work And I myself have an hour and a half session with somebody once a month. And I love it when I get it. It took me a while to find somebody that I felt was at my capacity. Okay and then the other position is just to lay the hand on the sacrum here and curl the fingers at L5 S1 and give a little bit of traction this way.
This is a little tricky because you have to keep the palm of the hand pretty secure and the fingers have to bend so there’s quite a lot of technique in the hands in order to get the right feeling. And the hands have to work independently because I’m right at the sacral coccyx junction and I’m stretching downward on that while I’m allowing the movement, which is a little bit of a swaying motion at L5 S1. There’s a downward traction as well as this being loose to be able to align.
At the same time it’s being tractioned downward. Okay and there’s some movement happening. These techniques will usually give quite a bit of change to the pain. It doesn’t mean that one time is going to give total remedy to the problem but it does begin to correct that space. Once that’s corrected then we can go in and also work into the muscles, much deeper into the musculature. And the only reason i work into the musculature is to loosen the muscles so that they’re not sinching down around those nerves.
Because if they are sinching around those nerves then they are not gonna let go really easy even though the alignment happens so i just worked really deeply into these glutial muscles for the purpose of the muscle again, not the purpose of the nerve. And I’m careful if I go into the area where the sciatic is the main place where you can feel it. I do not go into that with a lot of deep pressure because again I don’t like going into the inflamed areas and I don’t like going into pain.
With a lot of pressure. I don’t think in my work it gives me the better results. Okay and then up front and there is many areas of the hip to take and loosen. And along the ridge of the hip as well coming from the sacrum. Working all that. And of course both sides are benefited. I won’t do too much on this side. Both sides have benefited by that. You can even go into the attachments of the hamstrings. In fact it’s a good idea to make sure that the.
Quadriceps and hamstrings are well stretched. With this there’s also some stretches that can be done with the leg, but I will show that at another time So basically what i do is corrected the position of the sacrum to alleviate the pain of the sciatic pain or hip pain.

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.

Next is the side of the eye on the bone parallel with the eye there, and then underneath the eye the under the eye point.
on the bone just there. Next is the collarbone point you have two collar bones topping on either side right there.

Hip Pain Relief Piriformis SI joint Yoga Tune Up
Lastly you need to use your Yoga Tune Up Balls to target powerful muscle call the piriformis. the the piriformis is a major muscle in your buttocks. that helps to rotate your thigh bone outwards. The muscle starts right about at your SI joint that’s called the sacroiliac joint. You can find it by looking for the dimples in your sacrum There’s a little dimple here on the inner edge of each buttock. so you take your balls and place it right there on that dimple and then slowly start to shimmy.
You hips along the muscle from side to side. the muscle the piriformis overlies the sciatic nerve and often when people have sciatic nerve pain it’s because the piriformis is so tight now because you’re shimmying and your buttocks do have some amount of size to them from time to time you’re gonna have to reset the balls because your buttocks are going to be pushing the balls out of the way and one more thing to do to get deeper into that piriformis is to drop one knee the at a time.

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.
How To Massage Sciatica To Reduce Leg Pain Massage Monday 226
Hi everyone. This is Yasuko and it’s time for Massage Monday. This week I’m going to talk about how to selftreat sciatica or more accurately pseudosciatica using a lacrosse ball or Thera Cane. I often have clients come in with sciatica issues with a pain shooting down from the hip to the leg and even numbness in the leg. So what is sciatica Sciatica is an inflammation of sciatic nerve that runs through the hip and down the side of the leg or the back of the leg. The common symptom is the radiating pain.
From the hip all the way to the leg. Medically speaking it is caused by a pinch of the nerve in the lower back by herniated discs or bone spurs which can be medically treated by a surgery as a last resort. However, this pain that shoots down the leg may be caused simply by tight gluteal muscles, the muscles in the buttocks, specifically by the trigger points found in gluteus minimus. Let’s call this pseudosciatica because it’s not really sciatica but has the similar pain like the real sciatica and it makes it hard to get up from the chair or stand straight.
Trigger Points are the tight spots in muscles that are stuck in a contracted state and forgot to release. They are sore or painful to touch but they also cause pain elsewhere called referred pain. This is what I mean. In this case, the X’s are the trigger points in gluteus minimus and the red areas are the referred pain. When you loosen these trigger points the pain in the red area will be gone. These trigger points can be created from various reasons such as sitting crooked for a long time in front of the computer, TV, car, airplane,.
Especially if you keep a wallet in your butt pocket, or from playing sports like tennis, walking, running, swimming, and cycling for a long period of time. To treat the trigger points first find the hip bone. Then go down on the side of the hip to find the greater trochanter which is the big bump on the top of the thigh bone. The gluteus minimus is located between these landmarks. It is the deepest layer of the gluteus muscles. You can also lean side to side and feel the muscles contracting as you.
Lean to the target side. Then put a lacrosse ball on the muscle and lean against the wall and roll it over the tight spot for 10 times which should take no more than 20 seconds. You don’t want to do it too long because it involves some pain and you don’t want to bruise the muscle. If you are working on the right side, stand on your left leg. Or almost lift your right foot to loosen the target muscle. When you massage the muscle should be relaxed and loose so you can dig deeper. As you saw this muscle gets contracted and tight when.
You put on your weight on this side. If you have a pain on the side of the leg, look for a painful spot more towards the side between the hip bone and thigh bone. If you have a pain in the back of the leg, look for a painful spot towards the center of the glutes under the hip bone. If lacrosse ball is too hard and painful, you can use a tennis ball. You can also use Thera Cane if you have one. With Thera Cane put the ball on the tip on.
The gluteus minimus from behind, hold it with both hands in a comfortable position, lean to the other side, and press on the tight spot for 10 times.
