Pilates classes for sciatica treatment

The sciatic nerve is the longest nerve in the human body, and the one with the largest diameter. It originates from several nerve branches in the spinal column, in particular the roots of the last two lumbar vertebrae (L4 and L5) and the first three sacral nerves. It then continues on to the buttock, the posterior aspect of the leg and is divided, then the posterior aspect of the leg and is divided at the posterior part of the knee. In this way, it ensures motricity and sensitivity in the posterior part of the thigh. The sciatic nerve is involved in sciatic pain, which can extend from the buttocks to the thighs, legs and feet, right down to the toes.

Other symptoms include:

  • fatigue, numbness or tingling in the leg or foot
  • inability to bend the foot sufficiently to walk on heels
  • a sensation of heat or electricity running through the leg reduced reflexes in the Achilles heel or knee

Pilates to relieve sciatica

Our Pilates classes stretch and relax leg and lower back muscles. By engaging the deep muscles, and striving for self-expansion of the spine, we will reduce the pressure on the vertebrae and discs. This is followed by a range of exercises to improve mobility in the hips and the rest of the body. By regularly practicing a few specific
exercises and stretching accompanied by correct breathing, you can reduce pain and prevent further inflammation.
