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.

Back Massage Therapy How to for Sciatica Pain Relief Treatment, CranioSacral Techniques
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.

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.

Treating Sciatic Pain Dr. Daniel Yadagar, Interventional Pain Management Physician
Hi, I’m Doctor Daniel Yadegar,I’m an Interventional pain management specialist with the Orlin and Cohen Orthopedic Group. More often than not people ask me what exactly is interventional pain management Interventional pain management is a discipline of medicine devoted to the diagnosis and treatment of pain related disorders. Our goal is to relieve, reduce, or manage pain and improve a patient’s overall quality of life. This is accomplished by utilizing a multidisciplinary approach,in which a team of health care professionals worktogetherto provide a full range of treatment optionsand services for patients suffering from chronic andor acute pain.
Common musculoskeletal pain disorders include Back, Hip, and Leg Pain Neck, Shoulder and Arm Pain Whiplash Injuries Work Related Injuries Sports Injuries Failed Back Surgery and Other Post Surgical Pain Syndromes Myofascial Pain Facet Syndrome Sacroiliac Joint Pain Today I will be briefly talking about back pain with sciatica or pain radiating down the leg. This is a common complaint that we encounter on a daily basis. Sciatic pain results when injury or pressure have compressed the spinal roots or nerves that branch off the spinal cord in the lower region of the spine.
Sciatic paincan be described as sharp, dull, burning, tingly, numb, continuous, or intermittent and usually affects only one side of the body. There may be associatedweakness in the affected limb as well. Sciatic pain is most often the result of aherniated disc,spinal stenosis, ornarrowing of the spinal canal associated with arthritis or bony overgrowth, or in extremely rare cases, infection or tumor. An initial work up including a detailed and comprehensive history and physical examis the first step in diagnosis. Further work up may be needed such as imaging studies which.
Include xrays, MRIs CT scans and or nerve study testing. Once the diagnosis of the cause of sciatica has been determined, a treatment plan is then established. Most cases of back pain resolve with nonsurgical treatment. Some of the most common nonsurgical treatment options that we utilize are physical therapy and exercise, medication management and spinal injections. As an interventional pain physician, I am trained through the use of xray guidance or flouroscopy to deliver potent medications targeted specifically to the affected site of inflammation in the spine. The use of.
Flouroscopy allows the medication to be placed safely and precisely. These procedures are done as an outpatient in our accredited flouroscopy suite, which is fully staffed with certified personnel and licensed anesthesiologists. Other common procedures that we are trained to administer for appropriate musculoskeletal problems include Cervical, thoracic, and caudal Epidural Steroid Injections Facet Joint Injections Medial Branch or Nerve Blocks Radiofrequency Ablation SacroiIiac Joint injections Hip Injections Trigger Point Injections Bursa Injections Lumbar Discography Spinal Cord Stimulation Percutaneous Disc Decompression For more information on musculoskeletal conditions you can visit our patient education section.

There’s 8 of them and the first is on the side of the hand it’s the base of the palm the fleshy part of the hand, often known as the karate chop point where you would karate chop a piece of wood!.
So taking the fingers of the other hand, 1,2, 3 even 4 whatever feels comfortable to you as with all the tapping points, just tap gently whatever feels comfortable to you the next point is the top of the head right on the crown just tapping gently, and then you move down to the eyebrow point which is between the two eyebrows right in the middle there. 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. Then moving down to the breastbone point The breastbone runs down the body and at the base there’s little indentation which is known in acupressure as the Sea of Tranquility so you just tap gently on there. Then finally we have the Fingertips Point. The meridians in the body run down to the end of the fingertips, so you put your fingers together with your thumb underneath, encircle it with your other hand.
And squeeze gently on the fingertips. Whilst you’re doing that you take a deep breath in and out. And that’s it. those are the simple tapping points you need to use for the Step1 Tutorial. Ok. Now you know the tapping points, bring your problem to mind. Create a simple phrase for your specific symptom, to fill in the blanks as you tapalong for example. I have this splitting headache, I have this pain in my neck, I feel anxious about my test, I have this chocolate craving, I have this fear of spiders,.
I have these itchy eyes. Now, check the intensity again, from zero to ten. Done that Great. Now relax, and tapalong with me.

So, what is a sciatic nerve Let’s talk about sciatica first. Sciatica is a type of back pain. However, many patients and even doctors will mix up sciatica with common lower back pain. The cause or source of pain is very different. The areas of sciatica are located at the buttock, back of the thigh and refer down to the calf area. According to what you have just said, the painful areas are located lower in the body below the lower back That is correct. Unfortunately, many people will say lower back pain is sciatica. It is a misunderstanding.
When people are having back pain, they will say they are having sciatica but actually not sure at all. At the back. But it is actually below the lower back, and that will consider as sciatica. Let’s take a look at the diagram. The red areas Yes, it is at the buttock, the back of the thigh and refers down to the calf area in red colour. To the ankle area Yes. All the way travel that far Yes, that is why common lower back pain will stay at the lower back, but sciatic will refer down to the lower body.
So, is the sciatic nerve this long Not really, but pain is referred down there. Pain is referred down there. That means the pain can refer farthest down to the ankle area That is correct. It is a lot clear now. So, what is sciatic nerve Sciatic nerve is the combination of a number of nerve roots. Let’s take a look at another diagram. Then we can understand sciatic nerve better. It looks complex but we just need to look at the area where I circled. In fact, sciatic nerve is composed of L4, L5, S1, S2 and S3 nerve roots.
That means, on the right hand side, L4, L5, and then S1 to 3, right That is correct. You can see where I circled, it is the sciatic nerve. Can you guess how big the sciatic nerve is How big This is another IQ question! Is it similar to a finger It is the size of your thumb! The size of my thumb! Not bad, your IQ is good! Well, I am looking at the diagram Haha! Since the sciatic nerve is so big, you can imagine how painful it is when you injure this nerve.
So, I have heard my friends said it is very painful and sometime I cannot picture how painful it is. It is because of its size in fact, it is the biggest nerve apart from the nerve roots. Is it because of the compression of this nerve that induces pain Usually it is not due to compression, but inflammation. Could you then explain to us what will cause sciatica One of the causes, which we had mentioned, is the problem at the muscle. Therefore, if the functioning of the muscles of the lower back and buttocks are not good,.
They will develop trigger points. Then the pain referral pain patterns of these trigger points are very similar to sciatica. Therefore, there are close relationship between trigger points and sciatica. Secondly, it is the misalignment. If there is any misalignment at the spine, it could cause irritations of the spinal nerve root. Then the functioning of the nerve root will be affected, and possibly causes sciatica. So, why is there misalignment in the spine Then, we need to look at the bodily conditions individually, like sitting posture, physical demands from work, any previous trauma, etc. These are possible causes.
There are many different factors which can cause misalignments of the spine. Thirdly, it is something directly affecting or injuring the nerve root. For example, disc herniation. In which I had talked about it. Also, bone spurs and canal stenosis can cause the compression of nerve roots. These will give rise to inflammation, and then pain will result. I can feel the severe pain just from listening to you. Haha! So, what are the treatment methods in case we have an injury Taking medication can decrease symptoms but may not treat the cause.
In general, if the cause is extrinsic, for example, muscles taking medication will just decrease the pain. But you are not taking care of the root cause. We will use more than one approach for treatments. We can do some physiotherapies, use heatice, ultrasound and acupuncture. All of these can help to reduce pain. Ok. Secondly, we need to exercise we can do stretching and strengthening exercise. Meaning strengthening muscles Correct, strengthening muscles. On the other side, we need to stretch the muscles which wraps around the nerve. I should put a bit more emphasis in here. About 80 of the sciatica is due to muscular factors.
The muscle which wraps around the sciatic nerve is called piriformis. We can take a look at the diagram. So, 80 of sciatica are caused by piriformis That is right. You can see the yellow coloured nerve is the sciatic nerve. You can also see there is a triangular muscle located above the nerve. That piece of muscle is called piriformis. Piriformis. Piriformis. This piece of muscle is responsible for 80 of sciatica. This is a small piece of muscle. Right, but this muscle is also strong. When this muscle tightens up or becomes fibrotic, it will compress the sciatic nerve.
Majority of sciatica is caused by this muscle. Oh! What do you mean by fibrotic That means it becomes hardened. For instance, I had talked about frozen shoulder. The muscles cause frozen shoulder are also fibrotic. Therefore, both conditions are very similar. But this one has a worse prognosis it is the nerve is bigger in this case that you may feel more painful than the other condition. I can feel the severe pain just from listening. I have a question as I know how to treat and what is the cause.
Many occasions, I have seen men would like to put their wallets in the pockets behind. Their buttocks are already imbalanced Put 2 wallets! Haha! Will that affect their sciatic nerve Of course! It is the exact location where they put their wallets So, if you do not have sciatica, you may develop sciatica! And, if you do have sciatica, pain will become more severe! You better take the wallet out, Rodney! What I will recommend, regardless you are man or woman, instead of putting wallet behind, you can put the wallet in the front pocket.
For 2 reasons, first of all, it is safer. Secondly, you are not compressing the sciatic nerve area. Yes, of course, especially for those who need to drive long distance. It hurts a lot when the area is being compressed all the time. Understood. We don’t have a lot of time, but can you teach us some exercisestretching Sure. Let me show you one simple stretching! We need to sit further away from the table. We only need to sit down to do this stretching. Put the ankle of the painful side on top of the opposite knee.
For example, the left ankle. Then, lean forward. You should feel some stretching at the left buttock area. That is the area of the piriformis. Oh! Oh! That is the triangular muscle you have just talked about. You only need to do this to stretch that muscle. Somebody may like to do this lying down. The difference is you are going to put both hands behind your thigh and pull it towards your chest. Oh, I see. But I will prefer this method for the reason Sitting down You can do this everywhere!.
