Hip Stretch

Treat Sciatica with a Laying Hip Stretch

This is  one of the most gentle and most popular ways of stretching the Hips and Glutes. This can be done by almost any age or fitness level. This stretch should be added to your daily routine for general sciatica health. This is also a very useful tool for general flexibility. This stretch can be done by practically anyone and held very easily for a long period of time. This stretch is intended to improve your flexibility in your Hips and Glutes. It only takes a few minutes to stretch and warm up your muscles and joints. But for best results, the key is to do all of the stretches we provided every day. Also taking a nice hot shower before or after stretching can also help you feel more flexible and limber.
