Best DIY Sciatica Pain Relief Exercise| NO STRETCHING NEEDED
Sciatica can be one of the most frustrating and painful things you could ever deal with.
While recovering from my ruptured L5-S1 disc, I literally thought surgery would have been a better option.
Even I came back from occasional bouts of sciatica, and I want to share one of the best strategies I have ever used.
Sciatica relief can be challenging, and one of the most important things I suggest you do first is to make sure the cause of your sciatica isn’t anything serious.
A little herniation or bulge resulting in tingling down the back of the leg is not a big deal, but when you lose control of your bowels and your gate is altered, it’s time to get checked out.
So, first, get it checked out. Then, if it’s no big deal, start doing what I suggest in the video below!

Will My Sciatica Pain Go Away On Its Own?
This is an excellent question and needs a few layers peeled back to know for a fact what you can expect.
In my experience working with people dealing with moderate to severe sciatica, their results vary.
For some, their sciatica is so bad that the only option is surgery, and it’s because of surgery that their life improves. This was the case for my little brother Cody MotorcycleMD.com.
His herniation had gotten to the point where his gate was heavily impacted, and his overall quality of life was minimal.
He was beyond exercise being the most effective option compared to surgery.
In his case, he now has to make the habit o building strength and changing the habits that may have caused the herniation in the first place.
He could wind up back on the operating table with the same issue if he doesn’t.
Should I Stretch For Sciatica Pain Relief?
Whether you should stretch for sciatica pain relief depends on the cause of your sciatica in the first place.
If it’s actual sciatica, stretching (in my opinion) does not help much. If anything, it continues to pull and tug on the sciatic nerve creating more irritation than before.
If you’re dealing with Piriformis Syndrome or what is commonly known as Pseudo-Sciatica
This can often be addressed with some level of strengthening and stretching. Still, before you dive too much into that, I suggest doing a little research on Piriformis Syndrome and checking out some of the Sciatica vs. Piriformis Syndrome tests you can do on yourself.
