Seated Sciatic Nerve Glider – Leg Only

HOW: Begin in a seated position with your hands behind your back and your back slightly rounded in a “slouched” position. From here, point your toes down as you straighten your leg then pull your toes up towards you as you bend your knee to return to the starting position.   
  • FEEL: You should feel a comfortable stretch through the back of your knee and even into your calf musculature.
  • COMPENSATION: Be sure to point your toes as you straighten your leg and to pull your toes up as you bend your knee. This will help create gliding of the sciatic nerve vs tensioning.
