We get this question a lot.

First, let’s look at exactly where the sciatic nerve is.

The sciatic nerve is a very long nerve which begins in the lower back, passing through the hip, and down the back of the leg.

So sciatica is an inflammation of this large nerve.

This inflammation can be caused by many things, such as disc herniation, degenerative disc disease, and other conditions. Late-stage pregnancy can also trigger sciatic pain.

There are many different ways to deal with sciatic pain, such as natural pain relievers and natural anti-inflammatories.

Stretching the muscles in the lower back and upper legs, especially the piriformis muscle, is an excellent way to improve local blood flow and reduce inflammation.

But stretching the lower back, as with any other stretching exercise, must be performed correctly and carefully. It’s easy to injure yourself when performing stretches incorrectly, especially if you are not used to exercising.

So in our search for a safe stretching aid, we came across the CoreStretch.

The CoreStretch has several qualities that we really like:

Simplicity – It’s very easy to use

Versatility – The CoreStretch is not limited to sciatica. Other muscle groups in the upper back, lower back, shoulders, and legs can also be stretched.

Low-Cost – The CoreStretch is inexpensive and highly portable…certainly cheaper than a gym membership! Just leave it in the corner of your room, and use it once or twice a day.
