Pelvic Tilt

Its purpose is to strengthen the lower abdominal muscles and stretch the lower back.

How to do it:

  • Lie on back
  • Exhale and tighten abdominal muscles while pushing the belly button toward the floor and flatten the lower back
  • Hold the position for 5 seconds
  • Repeat 10 times holding the position for 5 seconds each

Am I doing it right?

  • Place the pinky finger on the hip bone and thumb on the lowest rib (same side).
  • When tightening the abdominal muscles, the amount of space between the pinky finger and thumb should get smaller.
  • Pelvic tilts help strengthen the lower abdominal muscles and stretch the low back.

  • Lie on back
  • Start with either  left or right knee and use hands to gently pull the bent knee toward chest
  • Hold for 10 seconds
  • Repeat movement on opposite knee
  • Perform 3 to 5 times holding position for 10 seconds each

Knee to chest exercise/stretches can help reduce nerve compression on the lumbar spine alleviating lower back pain.

Lower Trunk Rotation

Its purpose is to increase the spine’s mobility and flexibility.

  • Lie on back with both knees bent upright and both feet flat on the floor (aka the hook lying position).
  • Hold both knees together, rotate knees to one side
  • Hold for 3 to 5 seconds

There will be a gentle stretching sensation on the opposite side of lower back and hip area

  • Contract abdominal muscles and rotate both knees to opposite side
  • Hold for 3 to 5 seconds
  • Repeat 10 times on each side

 

 

Lower body rotations can help you strengthen your lower abdominal muscles and stretch your low back. 

All Fours Opposite Arm and Leg Extensions

Its purpose is to strengthen the abdominal muscles, low back and stabilize the areas.

  • Get in crawling position on all fours.
  • Contract abdominal muscles to keep back flat and straight
  • Raise one leg upward behind you and straighten outward
  • Hold for 3 to 5 seconds
  • Repeat the movement on the opposite side

Once this exercise/stretch can be performed 10 times with functional pain, add arm movement with each leg extension:

  • Extend the arm (opposite side of leg) upward and outward in front of body
  • Hold for 3 to 5 seconds
  • Repeat on the opposite side

Perform 10 times

How do these exercise/stretches reduce sciatic pain

Abdominal and spinal muscles are essential components of the spine’s system.

These exercises/stretches can help:

  • Strengthen the spine
  • Increase flexibility
  • Increase range of motion

These exercises can help keep the spine’s structural components strong and healthy along with reducing pain and speeding up healing.

Regular exercise causes the body to release endorphins or hormones that interact with the pain receptors in the brain that reduce the perception of pain.

 

Will exercising with sciatica cause/exacerbate injury

Do not to perform any of these exercises without consulting your doctor,  spine specialist or chiropractor.

Whatever level of fitness, remember even trained professional athletes exercise with a doctor, physical therapist, or other healthcare expert’s approval and clearance.

Obtaining an accurate diagnosis for the exact cause of the sciatic pain

Is essential before considering any exercise program

Be gentle with your spine, don’t push too hard while doing exercises. This is to avoid exacerbating sciatic pain or creating a new injury.

If exercise increases pain or causes nerve-related symptoms like:

  • Weakness
  • Tingling sensation
  • Numbness

Stop and contact your doctor or chiropractor immediately!


 

Sciatica Pain Therapy El Paso, TX Chiropractor

 

 

Sandra Rubio discusses how Dr. Alex Jimenez and his staff will help alleviate your sciatica symptoms. Chiropractic care may improve pain and discomfort in addition to reduce irritation and inflammation brought on by sciatica. In addition, a chiropractor like Dr. Jimenez may also provide nutritional and fitness tips for sciatic nerve pain. Other treatment methods, such as deep-tissue massage, can help alleviate sciatica symptoms. Dr. Alex Jimenez is your homeopathic, noninvasive choice for sciatic nerve disease and its related symptoms.

Sciatica is generally a result of the compression of the lumbar or sacral nerve by compression of the sciatic nerve. When sciatica is caused by compression of a dorsal nerve root, it’s called lumbar radiculopathy. This may occur due to a spinal disc bulge or spinal disc herniation (a herniated intervertebral disc), or by roughening, enlarging, or misalignment (spondylolisthesis) of this fascia, or even as a result of degenerated discs that can reduce the diameter of the lateral foramen by which nerve roots exit the spine.

Sciatica is characterized by a shooting pain that originates in the lower back and travels down through the hip, buttock, and back of the leg. The pain can be so severe that it inhibits mobility and can prevent people from working, taking care of their home, or just enjoying their life. Doctors have treated the condition with medications and some invasive therapies, but chiropractic treatments have been found to be extremely effective in alleviating the pain and curing the condition.
