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.

Pain in the butt
Hi welcome to Stressed Out Stress Free myname is Vincent Woon. This tutorial is in respond to my YouTube viewer telling me that he hasa pain in his left butt mainly from sitting too much in front of the computer.Pain in the left butt, basically what happened is the muscles around your butt tightens upand hit the nerve.so that's why he has pain in the butt. So that's why most people willsaid it's the sciatic nerve sciatic painsciatica because when all the muscles tightens up ithits the sciatica nerve and the pain will go down from your butt to the knee.So how do we take care of the pain in the butté I'm going to show you a couple of stretchesand also massage technique in order to get
rid of the pain.Alright! First stretch I'm going to show you is you get a chair and put your leg this waymake sure it's straight and what I normally do is bend the other leg. See the other knee,bend down and you'll feel the stretch right here, right there. So hold on there and bendyour knee you can actually feel the stretch here. One,two,three and do as many as youcan to loosen up the pain. Other stretch you can do is sit on the chairsimilar but turn sideways, similar but just pull your leg this way towards you and you'llget the same stretch all down here on the butt This way one two make sure you push thisdown closer towards you and this area here
is straight like such. One two three.Ok those are the two stretch and if it still doesn't work! First thing you need to do thenis to loosen up the area here. To loosen up the area what I normally do is I lift my legup.turn this way like such. Front view turn to the left exaggerate a little bit, liftup higher turn to the left then lift up turn to the right. That way it creates movementand loosens up the whole area there. And if still aches, use your finger pad put pressureright onto the pain area and turn left, goto the next area right left right. Put a littlepressure press into it left right in and out. These are the three technique that I woulddo and I recommend my client to do it. So
