Usually, doctors recommend a proper drug consumption, but some simple stretching during the treatment can help you get rid of the pain faster.
Stretching relieves inflammation and alleviates this pain. You need to do these exercises slowly, because the effort will be accompanied by pain at first. You need to emphasize the stretching with exhalation.
- While you lie down on a flat surface, bent the painful leg and pull it to the shoulder. Hold the position for 30 seconds and then straighten the leg. Repeat 2 more times.
- As you lie down on the ground, bent both legs and bring them to the chest. Don’t move your back from the ground. Cross your legs with the painful one above and grab the healthy leg with your arms. Pull it toward your chest and hold for 30 seconds. Repeat 2 times, with small brakes between them.
Exercising will stimulate blood circulation and it will help with the pain. The best treatment for sciatica is exercising, because they accelerate your recovery. So next time you feel your leg in pain, you know what to do to feel better.
