Video 1 of 4 - Effective Hip Stretches



Your sciatic pain relief may be instantly relieved from doing Step 1. You may notice a substantial difference from any of these techniques in these videos that can help relieve the pressure on your sciatic nerve can be stable and long lasting.

Here's what we're going to do:

A. Reclined Hip Stretch Hip Stretch 1 -
Lie on your back, with your knees bent and your feet flat on the floor. Cross one leg over the other so your ankle is resting on the knee of the other leg. Now, with one hand grabbing the ankle that is resting on your knee and your other hand grabbing the knee of that same leg, pull that leg toward your chest.
You will feel this pull on all those muscles in your buttocks that you were just releasing with the tennis ball. Pull on your leg, then let go a bit, pull again, relax a bit, and you'll feel the muscles stretch a bit each time you do this. Do this for a minute or so. Do the same thing on the other side. Then go back to the first side. Alternate sides a few times and you'll notice improvement as you return again to either side and stretch it.

Notice how much sciatica pain relief this one technique provides for future reference.

B. Seated Hip Stretch
Hip Stretch 2 - Sit on the floor with you one leg bent at a 90 degree angle in front of you, and the other leg at a 90 degree angle behind you. Lean forward over your front shin and notice that you'll feel a stretch deep in your buttocks. You do NOT want to feel this stretch in your knee, so if you do feel it in your knee then move your foot higher or lower so you do not feel it in your knee.
Lean over your knee, then shin, then ankle and notice the different areas you feel being stretched. Most likely you'll feel the deepest stretch when you lean over you ankle. Do this stretch on one side for a minute or so, then switch to the other side. Do three sets, at least, before moving on.

C. Twisted Hip Stretch
Sit on the floor with legs out straight in front of you.
Cross one leg over the other and bring the ankle of the top leg to where it rests on the outside edge of your opposite knee (or as close as you can get).
Now take your hand on the same side of your body as your bent leg and put it behind and out to the side a bit on the floor to support yourself.
And then take your elbow on the side of your body with the straight leg and reach it over your bent knee.
Now press your elbow into your knee so you feel a stretch in your buttocks.

Do both sides of your body about three times.

Video 2 of 4 - "Sports Ball" Release Release of Hips




These techniques to release your hips are highly effective. You may have to play around a bit, but it will be time very well spent.

Here's what we are going to do:

Basically, we'll be releasing all the muscles in your buttocks. From all the soft tissue by the bottom of your tailbone, to all the soft-tissue up to the top of your hip bones, and all the way out to the head of your femur (leg bone).

We'll be using the tennis-ball-press technique on any tender spots we find, BUT we'll be using not just a tennis ball, but a baseball, lacrosse ball, softball, etc. to find what ball is most effective in different areas of our buttocks.

Notice how much sciatica pain relief this technique provides. If done properly this can be can extremely effective way to get rid of your sciatic pain.

Video 3 of 4 - Hamstrings - Softball Release and Hamstring Stretch



These two techniques to release your hamstrings are well worth your time and effort. You can do these techniques as often as you would like. The more you do them the more they will generally only help you achieve the sciatica pain relief you are seeking.

So here's what we're going to do:

A. Softball Press Hamstring Release -

If you do happen to have a softball handy, it can be quite beneficial to release some tension in your hamstring using it before we do the stretch described below.

So in a seated position, stick the softball under your hamstring. Search for any tender spots and when you find some do the press-hold-move technique. You will probably get the most benefit in the upper two-thirds of your hamstring. Make sure to investigate near the very top of your hamstring close to where it attaches to the bones in the bottom of your hips. There is often some good tension there that a softball can be very effective in releasing. Notice how much tension you find and how much release you get. Notice how much sciatica pain relief this one technique provides for future reference.

B. Hamstring Stretch -

Your hamstrings are the muscles on the back of your legs from the top of the back of your knees to the bottom of your buttocks. I'm going to show you a basic hamstring stretch with one important trick that makes all the difference.
While keeping your legs straight,
stand with your feet shoulder width apart
with your weight in the balls of your feet (that means in the front of your foot and not in your heals, but not in your toes either)
bend forward like you where trying to touch the floor with your fingertips,
go as far as you can with just your bodyweight pushing you down
When you reach the point where your body won't naturally go any further you should feel a bit of tension in your hamstrings. NOW THE TRICK: Once you reach the point of bending over with only your bodyweight
FLEX YOUR THIGH MUSCLES (quadriceps)- the muscles that straighten your legs
While at the same trying to reach the floor with your fingertips.
Keep your legs straight while you do this and don't cheat!
You should feel this all the way from your calf muscles up to your butt when done properly. Press for a count of 5 to 10 seconds for each rep, do 3 sets of 3 reps.

Side of Leg & Outer Quadricep Release
& Tennis Ball Release of TFL



So here's what we're going to do:

A. Outer Hip (Tensor Fascia Latae) Tennis Ball Release -

Take a moment to locate the outer and upper most edge of your hip bone. If you poke your fingers into the tissue just below, that is your Tensor Fascia Latae muscle that can pull your hip down and out of position if it is tight.

Put a tennis ball on the floor and lie on it so it presses directly into your Tensor Fascia Latae Muscle. While keeping the ball pressing into one tender spot at a time, do the press-hold-move technique.

Do both sides of your body.

Notice how much sciatica pain relief this one technique provided.

B. Side of Leg Release -

Now do the exact same hand-on-hand technique with the press-pull-release technique as in Step 3A (just above) except on the very side of your leg (iliotibial band). You can sit or lie on your side while you do this with the side you are working on facing the ceiling.

From your knee to your hip bone, all the way up the side of your leg notice any tender spots. Press on the tender spot, while still pressing pull on that tissue a bit like you are trying to stretch it with your fingertips, and then slowly release it. Repeat that a number of times on each tender spot as you move up your leg.

You may notice at the very top to the side of your leg, there is a small muscle (tensor fasciae latae). Pay extra attention to this muscle, and do a few extra rounds of "press, pull, release" on it before moving on. If it's really stubborn, you can lie on a tennis ball to get more release from this muscle and do the tennis-ball-press technique to perform the press-hold-move technique.

C. Outer Thigh Muscle Release -

Sit in a chair or on a stool. If you are going to work on your right leg, take the tips of your fingers on your right hand and put then on the top outer third of the top of your thigh (vastus lateralis muscle).
Now curve your fingers on your hand a little bit, and take the palm of your other hand and place it over the fingers already on your leg. We call this the hand-on-hand technique- it allows you to apply pressure without tiring out your hands. You will simply press on the tissue with your finger tips, and press on your finger tips with the palm of your other hand. It's amazing how much easier it is to work on yourself using the "hand on hand" technique.
Use your fingertips to press along the entire length of the top outer third of your quadriceps on all the soft tissue (from your knee to your hip bones) and notice any tender spots.
Now......with your "hand on hand" position......we'll do the press-pull-release technique press-pull-and-release, press-pull-and-release (press and pull for about 1 full seconds and then release) continuously, with your finger tips using the "hand on hand" method into the tender spots until they become less tender.

Now do the other leg in exactly the same manner.

Notice how much lower back pain relief this technique creates for future reference. It is often the case that if you have lower right back pain then working on your left leg in this manner releases your back pain. And if your have lower left back pain then releasing the right leg in this manner provides immediate lower back pain relief. Knowing this can save you or your friends and family from a lot of pain.
