Sciatica can be from several different causes, and everyone is different, so as always we recommend consulting your doctor before starting P.volve.
Doing hip-opening stretches, as well as core and hip-strengthening exercises, can help people with sciatica.
- Keeping a neutral spine as you work, making sure you are not back-bending.
- Working in a shallow range of motion, especially when externally rotating (turning out).
- Using stretches found in yoga like pigeon pose, lizard, butterfly and figure-four to help release a tight outer glute.
- If you are experiencing a sciatica flare-up that is causing pain, it may be best to rest.
