I have often heard people talk about a pain that is in the back of their thigh and runs down the back of the leg. This can sometimes be Sciatic nerve pain.
What is Sciatica?
Sciatica is a term used to describe radiating pain that travels along the path of the sciatic nerve, running from your lower spine through the buttock and down the back of the leg. It flares when the sciatic nerve is irritated or pinched by any of a range of problems in your lower back.
Stretch to relieve Sciatic Nerve Pain
To help with relief from Sciatic Nerve Pain – Dr. Steve has a really simple stretch that may just help you in your day.
This Stretch is called the Pirformis Stretch for low back pain and Sciatica.
The tightness in these muscles often happens from extended sitting or even bouncing on a tractor seat or a bumpy ride in a big truck.
