Pain in the lower back or lumbar will create a resonance of pain throughout your legs, knees, feet, and even your toes. It can be unbearable at times, but now you can finally live pain free, with releasing the tension in the sciatica nerve.
There is simply no other way to put it; sciatica pain feels horrible. It is often described as numbness, tingling, and weakness. Symptoms are primarily felt in the buttock, lower back, knees, calves, and even the toes. Sciatica pain is often caused when the sciatic nerve is injured or damaged. It is easy to become immune to such a constant pain, so it is best to address it now.
The sciatica is a nerve that runs down the spine and branches off in several different directions down the leg. If the nerve is damaged it can cause excruciating pain. It can be literally debilitating and can be caused by a ruptured disk and the narrowing of the spine. Dr. Mark Kovacs, a certified strength and conditioning specialist, adds that the best way to alleviate most sciatica pain is to do “any stretch that can externally rotate the hip to provide some relief.” With that being said, let’s get to the point – how to fix it!
How to Solve Sciatica Pain Once and For All
There are two primary exercises that can provide relief of sciatica pain. In the beginning it is a bit difficult, but it is important to keep practicing it.
Lie down on the floor and bend the aching leg. Pull it slightly towards the shoulder, like demonstrated in the photo below. Once you feel the stretch stay in this position for about 30 seconds. Straighten legs and take a short break. Be sure to repeat this exercise two times minimum.
The second exercise requires supine position. Be sure to lie down on the floor and bend your knees. Afterwards pull them towards the chest slowly, but do not raise the buttocks from the floor. Do two repetitions of this too.
