RELIEVE AND PREVENT A SCIATIC

This sequence helps to RELIEVE AND PREVENT A SCIATIC. Sciatica, or rather neuralgia of the sciatic nerve, is pain in the lower limb that runs along the entire path of the sciatic nerve , which is often associated with low back pain and the main cause of which is a herniated disc located at the two main roots of the nerve L5 or S1 sciatica.

The sciatic nerve, which is the longest and the largest nerve in the body, is sensitive and motor because it ensures both the sensitivity of the lower limb and also partly its movements.

Depending on the root affected, the pains are significantly different but generally there is numbness and muscle weakness in the leg, tingling and sensitivity disorders in the foot or leg.

To relieve or avoid the ailments of sciatica, you should avoid sitting too long to avoid compression in the lumbar area and to move the lower back, hips and legs.

All the postures in this sequence open the hips, stretch the rear thighs and lower back, and relax the gluteal muscles.

Aside from aesthetics, strong glutes help improve our posture. The glutes are often overlooked and yet they are the largest and most powerful muscle group in the body. Sitting makes them lazy which leads to reduced mobility and lower back pain. We must therefore learn to stimulate them and to solicit them to keep them a minimum present and relaxed.
