The Hidden Muscle Causing Your Sciatica Pain and 2 Easy Stretches for INSTANT Relief
The Hidden Cause for Sciatica!
The piriformis muscle is a muscle in the gluteal region of the lower limb. It is one of the six muscles in the lateral rotator group. Because it’s woven through bone and other muscles, it can be missed when diagnosing sciatica. Piriformis syndrome is a neuromuscular disorder that occurs when the sciatic nerve is compressed by the piriformis muscle. It causes pain, tingling, and numbness in the buttock, posterior thigh, and the lower leg. If the cause of sciatica is the piriformis muscle, it can be treated without surgery, physical therapy, or pharmaceuticals.
How to Treat Sciatica?
We must move every muscle, and the piriformis is not an exception. Stretching is one of the best ways to relieve constriction and tension in the muscles, thus reducing inflammation and nerve pain as a result. We will present you two exercises that target the piriformis.
1. Lie on your back with your legs flat. Pull the affected leg up toward the chest, holding your left knee with your left hand and grasping the ankle with the other hand. Pull the knee towards your opposite leg until you feel a light stretch (do not force the ankle or knee beyond the stretch). Stay in this position for 30 seconds, then return to the starting position. Repeat the exercise three times.
