Simple Stretch for Sciatic Pain

Stretch I do every night

This stretch is wonderful anytime or for relief for sciatic pain from Piriformis syndrome.

Stretch after every workout when your muscles are warm and every night before  bed.

I receive many emails asking me for tips on stretching.  Stretching is just as important as lifting weights and eating healthfully.  I stretch every night before bed (with candles and relaxing music 🙂  It helps me sleep better and stay flexible.

How to do it:

  • Lie flat on your back

  • Cross your left ankle over your right knee, hip open

  • Grasp behind your right upper leg, breathe out and gently pull

  • Exhale as you pull, don’t bounce

  • You can have your shoulders flat on the floor or slightly up off the floor

  • Repeat other leg

  • Do each leg 3x

  • Hi there,

    I was searching for some articles about piriformis syndrome when I came across your page.

    Just wanted to give you a heads up that I created something that would be a great addition to your post resources. It’s an article that describes in detail what causes the piriformis syndrome and how you can treat it yourself with 3 exercises.

    Let me know if this is something you be interested in and I’ll send it your way to check it out .
    Either way, keep up the good work!
