Sciatica Exercises and Stretches

The most common way of managing sciatica pain is by practicing specific exercises, postures, and stretches. It is very important to note that this physical activity should be approved by your physician since a physical trauma or injury can get worse after moving your body in the wrong position.

If you are new to stretching and exercise these exercises should be instructed directly by a physiotherapist who can guide the exact angles of the movements keeping in view the alignment of the muscles, bones, and nerves inside of our body.
