How to Relieve Sciatica During Pregnancy


Exercises for Sciatica During Pregnancy

Hip Help

1. Place a Yoga Tune Up Therapy Ball on the outside of your left hip and rest on it for a few seconds.

2. Begin to contract the multiple muscles in contact with the ball, hold the tension for 10 seconds and slowly let go. Take three deep breaths and then repeat, contracting/relaxing for 2 minutes total.

3. Pedal your left leg and hip as if riding a bicycle, 10 times in one direction, 10 times in reverse (pictured).

4. Finally, plow the ball from the outside of your hip toward your sacrum with firm pressure, and then reset the ball to the outside of your hip with your hand. In this move, the ball mobilizes your buttock myofascias in one direction only, it moves the tissues toward the sacrum. Do 10 to 20 reps before switching sides.

  1. Good tips! I didn’t know it was the orientation of the baby that could cause trouble. My wife has never had any issues with sciatica before pregnancy, but now she says it’s been troubling her. At least I am pretty sure that’s what it is. I am not a doctor, so I don’t know for sure but that’s what it seems like. She has been doing yoga a pretty good amount, too. Says it helps a little bit sometimes if she is careful. Are there any other tips that you can recommend, or should we just go see a doctor?

    I had the same issue, messages and exercises really work. Exercises help body move better as at this time you can hardly do some physical stuff.
