Piriformis Syndrome: How To Quickly Stop Sciatica and Low Back Pain

Sciatic problems have plagued me for many years, trips to my local chiropractor have got me back to pain free running but the problem never went away, ready to strike back at any time!
a couple of weeks ago the sciatic pains down my leg came back with avengence, even walking was painful! I decided to try some stretches The One Mile Runner recommended, straight away i got relief and was able to run a 14 miler without much problem.
It seems many runners get sciatic problems so here to help you are some video's.

The next video shows the doorway stretch that helped me,
Stand on one leg, lean forward then drop opposing hip down.

And here is one final stretch to try, hope they help.

Luckily I don't need those (touch wood)! If I ever do, I'll know where to look - thanks Rick.

Very useful videos thanks for posting. From the end of July through to about October last year I had sciatica. Initially I was unable to drive as the pain was so intense and running was out of the question. I was pescribed some heavy dose tablets and advised to do some stretching but this amounted to touching the toes! Could have done with the advise on these videos then

Regards Paul


Glad to here you have np back problems Ewen, Paul sounds like you got some poor advice about correct stretching, toe touching is not the best exercise as it overloads your lower back, hope you are fully recovered now.

Right now it appears like Wordpress is the top blogging platform out there
right now. (from what I've read) Is that what you are using on your blog?

Hey would you mind letting me know which webhost you're using? I've loaded your
blog in 3 different browsers and I must
say this blog loads a lot quicker then most.
Can you recommend a good internet hosting provider at a reasonable price?

Kudos, I appreciate it!
