How to Prevent and Alleviate Sciatica and Piriformis Syndrome
The lower back and gluteal muscles can become chronically contracted as a result of athletic training, heavy lifting, or repetitive daily activities like sitting at a desk or carrying a baby. The best way to prevent and alleviate sciatica and piriformis syndrome is to release chronic muscular contraction in the lower back and gluteal muscles, and retrain damaging posture and movement patterns that could be causing compression of the lumbar spine.
Clinical Somatic Education uses a highly effective movement technique called pandiculation that works with the nervous system to release chronic, involuntary muscle contraction. Clinical Somatics exercises also retrain posture and movement patterns, preventing pain and structural damage and allowing you to use your body in a natural, efficient way.
Clinical Somatics exercises are highly effective in relieving sciatica and piriformis syndrome. The Level One Course teaches exercises that release involuntary muscular contraction in the lower back and gluteal muscles, relieving pressure on the sciatic nerve. The exercises are slow, gentle, and suitable for all ages and physical abilities.
