Supine Sciatic Nerve Slider

  • HOW: Get set up laying flat on your back. On the side you plan to mobilize - hug that knee towards your chest and support that thigh with your hands wrapped behind your knee. To perform the exercise, kick your knee straight while simultaneously pointing your foot and toes down, reverse the motion at your knee and foot, and repeat.

  • COMPENSATION: Try to keep the rest of your body still and your knee in the same position that you start in. View video for other tips and details.
