Sciatic Nerve Pain Stretches Exercises Ask Jo

Hey y'all, it's Jo and my assistantwith me today is Bailey again. And today I'm going to be talking about your piriformis.So lots of times I hear people say they've got that sciatic nerve, well actually everybodyhas a sciatic nerve, but you can have pain coming from that nerve, and a lot of timesthat piriformis muscle is causing the pain. So we're gonna show you some stretches tostretch out your piriformis and hopefully get rid of that sciatic nerve pain. Alrightlet's go on to our backs. Here we go. I think we're gonna maybe move Bailey out of the way.In the first stretch for your piriformis is a pretty simple one. A lot of pictures youmay get from your therapist will actually

show one leg down, I actually like for youto have it staying up so you can prop your foot over it. So your gonna make almost likea figure 4 with your legs and then what you're gonna do, the side that's hurting, so my leftside is hurting, I'm gonna cross that leg over. And what I'm gonna do is I'm gonna bringmy knee with my opposite hand towards my shoulder over here. So I'm pulling this leg up and acrossmy body. And what you wanna do same kind of thing with all the stretches, you wanna pulland you wanna feel a stretch under there. Soon as you feel a really good stretch youwanna hold it for 30 seconds. So remember up and across the body. Just coming up isnot gonna get that piriformis stretch. But

coming up and across the body like I'm tryingto bring that knee towards my shoulder. Holding it there for about 30 secondsa real 30 seconds.And then coming back down and you wanna do that 3 times. Now the next one to do, sometimesthis is a little harder for people, but what your gonna do is your gonna keep that samefigure 4, and what your gonna do is your gonna take your hands and on the opposite side thatit's hurting, so the hurting side is still up crossed over it's still my left side. I'mgonna take my hands and put them underneath my thigh, and I'm gonna bring my leg up, andI'm gonna pull until I feel that stretch underneath there. Now some people might have a hard timegrabbing on to their leg here, so again you

can use your belt, or your dog leash and putit under, around your leg, and pull up towards you like this. Same kind of thing, you wantto hold that stretch for 30 secondsbye Bailey, we'll see you later and then 3 times each.Alright, so now you're gonna bring that down getting it nice and stretched. For those ofyou that need a stronger stretch, those might not be stretching it out quite as much, whatI'm gonna have you do is I'm gonna have you turn over. And what your gonna do is the sidethat's hurt again, my left side, I'm gonna bring my leg up across. Now as you can see,this is something you have to be pretty high level, pretty flexible to do, but it's gonnaget a fantastic stretch. So your gonna put

your knee over across your body, and bringyour body down. So it's almost that same concept, you're bringing that knee towards the oppositeshoulder, but what you're doing now, is you're using your body weight to bring it down. Youcan stretch that back leg as far as you can. You can bring your arms down, but that kneeis essentially going towards that opposite shoulder. 30 second stretch, 3 times each.Alright and there you have it. Those were your piriformis stretches. So if you had somepressure on that sciatic nerve, hopefully that will loosen it up a little bit.

Extensor Digitorum Longus Muscle Function Anatomy Human Anatomy Kenhub

Hey there! It's Matt from Kenhub! And inthis tutorial, we will discuss the function and anatomy of the extensor digitorum longus. The extensor digitorum longus or Musculusextensor digitorum longus is one of the anterior muscles of the lower leg. These anterior muscles are a group of extensors.They lie within the anterior compartment located at the ventrolateral region of the lower legwhere they form its surface structure. Their tendons are particularly prominent onthe dorsum of the foot. They include the tibialis anterior, the extensor hallucis longus, andthe extensor digitorum longus.

The extensor digitorum longus muscle has threepoints of origin. It originates at the lateral tibial condyle, the ventral side of the fibula,and the interosseous membrane, and merges into a tendon above the superior extensorretinaculum. Below the inferior extensor retinaculum, itdivides into four tendons inserting at the dorsal aponeurosis and the bases of the distaland middle phalanges of the second through fifth toes. About 90% of people have an additional fifthtendon running towards the lateral foot edge and inserting at the fifth metatarsal bone.

All anterior muscles are innervated by thedeep fibular nerve. The main task of the anterior muscles of thelower leg is the dorsal extension of the upper ankle joint. In addition, both the extensor digitorum longusand extensor hallucis longus muscles are responsible for the lifting of the toes, the extensionof the first, middle, and end joints. Due to the course of the tendons, the anteriormuscles also contribute to the movement of the lower ankle joint. And in this function,the extensor digitorum longus muscle provides a powerful eversion known as pronation.
