From a case study of movement lessons that I have used to help with sciatica treatment solutions!
I noticed most people that have needed sciatica treatment had:
- stiffness in their ribs,
- stiffness in their back,
- stiffness in their hip joints
- stiffness in their shoulders
- stiffness in their neck
- numbness going down the side of the leg
- numbness in their feet and toes
So some of the exercises or movement lessons that I have done with the clients have helped a lot with sciatica treatment.
One exercise I do is a pelvic clock.
Lying on your back, knees bent and feet standing on the floor. Notice if there is any muscular effort while in this position and make yourself really comfortable.
Think of your pelvis as a clock!
Belly button is 12 o’clock, left hips is 3 o’clock, pubic bone is 6 o’clock and right hip is 9 o’clock.
To begin slowly start to rock your pelvis from 6 – 12 o’clock. do this about 20 – 30 times, really, really slowly.
As you continue these movements notice where it is easy to move. Feel the shift of weight over your feet, under your pelvis and anywhere else you may feel the shift in your body. Rest.
Begin this movement again, this time initiate the movement by curling your tail toward your pubic bone, and move your tail away from your pubic bone. You may have to visualize this as quite often a tight tailbone can cause incontinence, sore back, and other concerns that are uncomfortable for your back. Do this in your mind or slowly with small movements for 20 – 30 times. Rest! Notice any differences
This can be done sitting on a chair, a ball or lying down. Moving the tail can be done while waiting in line at the grocery store and anywhere!
Suggested use: two or three times every day.
