Chronic Low Back Pain & Hamstring Tightness-  Sciatic Nerve Floss


This exercise is great for when you feel like
you have tight hamstrings or when it feels tight getting into a straight leg position
with a flexed trunk. Usually it’s not due to tightness in the
hamstrings and is from irritation of the sciatic nerve. You may also have chronic low back tightness
and tension or a previous history of acute low back pain. If you are unsure about your current pain
or how to do this exercise, please consult your physiotherapist. You want to start sitting straight in an upright
position. Then extend your knee straight with your toes
pointing towards you and bring it back down. Repeat this for sixty seconds, doing five
sets there times per day. The progression of this exercise is to start
by moving into a slump posture with the back flexed and then extend your knee straight
with your toes pointing towards you and then sit back upright and then bring the leg back
down. Repeat this for sixty seconds, doing five
sets there times per day.
