Video: Single Knee to Chest SI Joint Stretch for Sciatic Pain Relief

Video Transcript

Let’s do the single knee to chest stretch.

We’ll start by lying down with your feet flat on the mat and your knees bent. Bring your right knee in toward your chest, and interlace your fingers behind your thigh.

Give your leg about 3 to 4 pumps in toward your chest.

Then you can carefully switch your legs our, bringing the left knee in toward your chest and interlacing your fingers behind the left thigh.

You can do each side about 10 times.

This is a great range of motion stretch directed at the SI joint, and it can help alleviate irritation of the sciatic nerve.

You can come out of this after you’ve done a few reps on both sides.

That was the single knee to chest stretch.
