Although the “Piriformis Stretch For Back Pain and Sciatica…Done Right!” viral video has helped thousands of people find relief from back pain and sciatica, it’s not a “slam dunk” for everyone…especially if your problem is a disc issue.
The exercise I share in today’s episode of Core Wellness TV focuses on low back pain and sciatica that come for disc bulges, disc herniations, and “slipped disc” (discs don’t really “slip” but a lot of people refer to it that way).
This move is especially worth a try if you find yourself leaning to the side and maybe slightly forward to “get away from the pain”.
In addition to the “side glide” exercise explained below, I want to give you my favorite handout for sciatica from disc issues. It was put together by one of my greatest teachers, Dr. Craig Liebenson. You can download that HERE.
