What Causes Sciatica Pain?

Sciatica pain can be cause by herniation in your lumbar spine – this is the part of your spine that curves inward, near you lower-middle back. This is serious and you should consult a doctor about this immediately. But nearly 70 percent of sciatica cases are caused by piriformis. This muscle is one of a few small deep hip rotators that you use to turn your thigh out.

The Twisted Lunge

Turning your back, place your opposite elbow on the outside your bent knee. Bring your palms together. Hold for thirty seconds.
