THIS WEEK’S “ASK GILAD” BLOG

Question: I have had your tapes for 20 years and your sisters as well, my question is What type of exercises should I do to avoid getting problems with sciatic nerve pain . Thank you for teaching me to stay motivated.  Laura

Answer: 

Laura, Sciatic nerve pain is a complicated one. As a general rule I would try to avoid any exercise that put pressure on the lower back and try to focus on easy stretching.

Any exercise you can do that helps 'open' the lower back area could be helpful such as laying on your back with your legs against a wall at a 90 degree angle for 10-15 minutes could be helpful.

Also, Childs pose with a pillow tucked between your upper thighs and lower abs to create space for the lower back can help. Another good stretch would be to do standing gentle waist twists from side to side.

I would avoid doing exercises that require deep forward flexion or extension and exercise that put pressure on the lower back such as squats with weights.
