In this video, you will learn how to do sciatic nerve flossing by Dr. Brian Damhoff.
1. Start in a seated position sitting upright
2. Bring your chin towards your chest and curl your leg slightly past 90 degrees with the foot in plantar flexion
3. Then at the same time, you will extend your leg and your head while pulling your foot into dorsiflexion
As you extend the leg, you can pull your toes towards your head. Make sure you go to tolerance when you extend the leg and head and don’t force the motion. It works best to perform this exercise on a chair or object where your feet don’t touch the ground to allow you to curl the leg better but you can still make it work even if you don’t have that option. This is a simple, yet effective way to floss the sciatic nerve.
