Sciatic pain can be effectively relieved with the correct exercise and stretches.
For over ten years, we have been helping clients suffering with Sciatica. Read more about Sciatica and Pilates here.
From this experience, we have identified the seven most common exercises and stretches that provide effective relief from Sciatic pain.
We are delighted to provide this complete, mp3 download set. The exercises and stretches can be followed as a fully worked out treatment or individually, depending on the need and time available .
As the need to stretch or exercise so often occurs when you are travelling, at work or simply away from the Pilates class or DVD player, we have compiled a specific Pilates for Sciatica audio workout for you to follow on your favourite mp3 player, smart phone or CD player.
The benefits of mp3 audio files:
- mp3 files are very versatile and can be played on a wide variety of devices, including smart phones.
- You can create your own playlists and thereby make up personalised exercise workouts.
- There is no limit to where the exercises can be followed, indoors or outdoors.
Exercises included in this workout:
- The Roll Up
- The Big Squeeze
- Spine Curls
- Hip, Buttock and Upper Body Stretch
- Internal Hip Rolls
- Hamstring, Calf, Inner Thigh and Butt
- Piriformis Stretch
- Finishing off
- Small Ball
- Resistant Band
- Pilates mat
The Pilates equipment used in these exercises is small and easily transportable. Both the small ball and the resistance band fold away flat.
If you do not have them with you, a pillow can be used instead of the small ball and a towel or belt instead of the band.
These equipment replacements are not as good, but can certainly help out in a pinch (excuse the pun).
