By definition, sciatica is pain affecting the low back, or radiating down the hip and outer side of the leg, caused by compression of a spinal nerve root (L2-L4) in the lower back.
There are many stretches for relieving sciatica or sciatica-like symptoms. They are usually targeted at stretching the piriformis muscle in your hip area.
In this video, I demonstrate two at-home seated stretches for sciatica:
1. Figure-4 Stretch
2. Nerve Flossing (NEED THIS LINK)
Chiropractic adjustments and flexion-distraction can help with alleviating pressure on nerves and increasing range of motion in the low back. Stretches and exercises help the adjustments and maintain the range of motion.
