Today we’re going to talk about how to fix sciatica. I’ve talked about this before, but this is an update with a new stretch that I think is really going to help you. The sciatic nerve is the longest and widest nerve in the body. Sciatica is pain that can come from your lower back and radiate down the legs.
The great majority of sciatic nerve pain involves a disc. An interesting thing about disc problems is that they typically come with a loss of the lumbar curve.
If you have sciatic pain, chances are you’ve lost the normal curve in your lower back. It’s essential to do what you can to restore this curve.
To restore your lumbar curve, you can do a stretch that involves firm foam support. When you lie on the foam support, you create constant stretching of ligaments, muscles, and tendons.
The first 10 to 15 minutes of using this device will give you relief but won’t correct your curve. However, some interesting research shows that increasing the time you lie on the support to about 20 minutes every day could start to correct the curve.
This stretch may be uncomfortable at first, so work up to 20 minutes gradually. Start with 10 minutes every night and slowly get to where you can do 20 minutes comfortably.
Even if your sciatic nerve pain goes away, continue to do this stretch to help correct the lumbar curve.
Thanks for reading! This is the #1 best stretch for sciatica nerve pain—give it a try. I’ll see you in the next video.
