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.

Vital Salveo Back Support CFit Back Brace Review Ask Jo
Hey everybody it's Jo, and it'sproduct review time again. The folks at Vital Salveo sent me their back supportCFit. Let's get sated. Out of the box, you can see here it's a nice solid back brace. And when you turn over,you can see here where the bamboo charcoal and germanium blend are. And asyou can see right in here, it's nice because once it gets into place, it staysthere and it doesn't slide around. So you have that bamboo charcoal and you havethat germanium altogether, and what those do together is they release negativeions and that helps increase oxygen and
circulation and helps the blood flow sothat really helps the healing process, if you have an injury or strain themuscles, or something like that, that just kind of helps increase everything. Andyou can even feel and here, that's where some of the support is and so it givesyou that extra support in your lower back area which is also really reallynice. So you definitely want to wear this underneath your clothes, and then nobodywill see it because it fits nice and tightly so that's nice. When I demonstrate it, I'll show over myclothes, though, so you can see it really well.
But what I like here, is these two velcrostraps, they each come off, so you can you can really adjust it to your body andhave it nice and supported. It's not going to be loose. It stays in one spotand it's really really nice there. So let me put it on and show you what it's allabout. As you can see here, the middle partwhich is the widest in link goes right kind of over your tailbone up into yourlow back that's where it starts. So I'm just going to show you here, andagain you can put it underneath your clothes, I just want you to see howit is. So the velcro pieces on the end
here are the ones I do first. So I pullit nice and tight get that on there. And then can you take these straps and then make it even tighter formore support. So getting it nice and tight solid. It kind of stays in one spot,as you can see, kind of starting down there and then working it up, and againit's got those little stability pieces right there to help really support thatlower back. So if you have a strain, if you've had an injury, or maybe even ifyou had a surgery and your recommends some kind of brace supportthis is really good. But what I'd like to
say me personally, I don't like when peoplewhere the supports all the time. This is for something if you're going toincrease your activity and you know it might be sore, but wearing it all daylong, long term isn't a good thing because then that actually weakens themuscles. These are designed to help the muscles when they're hurt or injured sothey can heal, allow them that healing process and having those negative ionsin there will help that healing process. So this isn't a longterm this is ashortterm. So there you have it,
