Buy Sciatica Stretches WorksheetSciatic pain can be caused by a few different things. These are my 5 favorite stretches for sciatica from a tight piriformis.

The first sciatica stretch is a figure four stretch lying down.  It is a great stretch for the piriformis muscle, and you can modify it if needed.

The next stretch is a knee to opposite shoulder stretch.  This stretches the piriformis in a slightly different way, so it might feel more comfortable than the figure four.

Then there is the trunk rotation in long sitting.  This not only stretches your piriformis muscle, but it also stretches your trunk and low back, so if you are having some pain there too, it might be a good one for you.

Now you will do a modified pigeon stretch.  Sometimes the pigeon stretch is too difficult for people to get in that position.  This one slightly changes the tension, and makes it a little easier to get into.

The last stretch is a seated figure four stretch.  This is great if you don’t have time or the place to lie down on the floor.  It’s also a great alternative for people who have a hard time getting off the floor.
