Sciatic pain is one of the worst kinds of chronic pain I think I’ve ever dealt with on a recurring basis. I had sciatica pain on and off for years. And when it would flare up, I remember feeling so helpless. Like there didn’t seem to be anything I could do to find relief, or any position I could put myself in that would help. Well guess what? There ARE things you can do for immediate and long term sciatica pain relief. In this video I show you the stretches and exercises that have helped me personally to overcome my sciatica pain – pain I suffered with for YEARS! I’m excited to share these exercises and stretches with you, because I believe they will help you too.

In this video I explain what the sciatic nerve is, and I discuss two of the most common causes of sciatica pain – bulging disc and piriformis syndrome. I explain these causes in detail and I show you specific stretches and exercises that helped me personally overcome years of sciatica pain due to these causes.

It’s important to note that there are other less common causes of sciatica pain, and If you’ve never had a medical professional look at your particular problem, it’s a good idea to do so since that may change which exercises are most appropriate for you.

Geoffrey Byamukama says:

So because you are Doctors, you think you will come here and keep lieing people ?

I don't know how you treat your sickness but if you ask me scietic nerve pain I will tell you that it has a cure.

The treatment that leads to its cure is taking elements that lack in your bloodstream.

Lack of sufficient Zinc in your bloods stream or diet is what causes sciatica nerve pain and other pains like paralysis or paralizing.

Take Zinc tablets 01 in morning and 01 in the evening every day and you will be okay in a long run.

Lack of Sufficient zinc is also related to forgetfulness.

Holy! I have been doing McKenzie for many months but my synpthoms hasn't improved. Pushing myself upp and down like a maniac. Many physical therapist have told me to do them but not really how.
Doing your style of cobra pose has improved my conditions just after a couple of weeks. Pushing your heart forward, pulling hands and everything to you.
If this solves my issues over time I will promote your YouTube channel and your fantastic work, from this day, until my last day

Just a small question:
Is it okey to do the cobra pose like every second hour or so during the day or is that too much?

David, could you post a link to that foam roller (or an equivalent) that you used in the video, One that you can endorse as good quality? On the stretching exercises using the mat, how many times a day can a person start with? Thanks.
