Share this content

Sciatica is a pain that can occur anywhere along your leg from your hip to your foot. Keep your sciatic nerve happy with today's easy stretching exercise.
Step 1: Pull your chair back from your desk and sit with your back straight.
Step 2: Cross your leg by placing your left ankle on your right knee. Your left knee will be bent comfortably - don't press down on your left knee.
Step 3: Place your right hand on your right ankle and place your left hand under your left knee.
Step 4: Gradually bend forward at the waist until you feel a stretch in your hip. Inhale and exhale while you hold the stretch for 15 seconds.
Step 5: Sit up straight again, then switch legs and repeat the exercise.
Repeat 20 times.
