2 Simple Ways Of Getting Rid Of Your Pain!

When your intervertebral disk starts pressuring your nerve, following a protrusion, it causes strong pains in your leg area. This condition is also known as sciatica.

Sciatica is the name given to the pains in the sciatic nerve which span from your lower back, through your hips and buttocks, and all the way down to each leg.

Any kind of damage to the places the nerve goes through can result in nerve pinching and this type of pain.

Lumbar pains spread through the length of your upper leg, knees, calves and/or your feet. They are strong and continuous aches that often cause a tingling sensation and leg numbness which leads to walking difficulties.

The most common scenario in this case is that the pain will spread through a single leg and become much stronger than a regular lumbar pain. This type of pain is called the sciatic pain, and it intensifies over-night and after long periods of standing, sitting, sneezing, coughing and straining.

The traditional way to treat sciatica is to use appropriate medications prescribed by a doctor. However, it’s always better to not rely entirely on pain medications.

If you only started practicing simple methods of muscle stretching, you will be able to say goodbye to those pains in a short time, without the use of too many painkillers.

Exercises for Stretching the Sciatic Nerve (Sciatica):

Stretching exercise can be very beneficial because they help soothe inflammations and by doing so lower the pain. Of course, things won’t be easy from the very start, but you can always start slow and then increase the stretches while you breathe out.

For your first exercise, lie down on a flat surface, bend your aching leg and pull it slightly towards your shoulder. Once you feel the stretch, try to hold your leg in that position for 30 seconds. Then straighten your leg, take a break, and repeat the exercise two more times.

For your second exercise, lie down again and then bend your knees and pull them slowly towards your chest, without lifting your buttocks from the floor. Then cross your legs, like in the picture, and pull your healthy leg with your hands.

Keep your legs in this position for 30 seconds and then let them go and return to the first position. You should likewise repeat this exercise two times.

By doing these stretching exercises, you are actually stimulating blood flow, eliminating muscle stagnation, and speeding up your recovery in the process.
