STRETCH FOR RELIEF FROM SCIATICA
This is a perfect stretch for loosening the piriformis muscle, which sits overtop the sciatic nerve. When this muscle is tight it puts pressure on the sciatic nerve, and can cause pain down the leg and even all the way to the foot.
STRETCH FOR COMPUTER USERS
Working at a computer for hours a day produces consistently tight levator scapula muscles, which produce neck and shoulder pain for many people. Dr Penner displays a simple stretch you can do right at your desk to help loosen that muscle and reduce pain.
