Just One Simple Exercise To Treat Sciatica And Lumbar Pain


Pinched sciatic nerve, or sciatica, causes acute discomfort and pain in the back and rear exterior of the thighs. Patients from 35 to 50 years old are most frequently troubled by this sciatic pain.

The sciatic nerve is one of the biggest and most vital nerves in our body spreading from the lower spine and down through the thigh, the knee and the shin of the foot, and ending at the toes.

At first, this disease starts with light pain and discomfort accompanied by drowsiness and knee cramps.

With time, this sciatica pain can become worse and it can spread to the whole leg’s posterior surface. If this pain is left untreated it can become paralyzing.

Medical treatment is essential in the early stages of the disease in order to prevent it from spreading and worsening the situation.

However, before you decide to consult a doctor, you can help yourself alleviate or even kill the pain at the comfort of your home.

There is a technique called a ‘butterfly pose’.

1. Stretch your legs in front of you while sitting on the floor;

2. Unite together your heels and soles of your feet and move your heels as close as you can to your pelvis;

3. Put your thighs down and touch the floor with your knees.

4. Stay still in this position for about 30-60 seconds. Don’t forget to breathe equally.

5. Gradually increase the time of the exercise.

Women can benefit from this butterfly posture even more. Namely, this pose will help you tonify your kidney; stop the development of spinal disc radiculitis and herniation, and it can help you treat urogenital disorders.
