Slump Stretch

Slump Stretch for Piriformis Syndrome and Sciatic Pain


Sometimes the sciatic nerve becomes entwined between fascia and dysfunctional muscle tissue. A great stretch to unwind the nerve from fascial restrictions is the Slump Stretch. Take things very easy to start with, and gradually build the length of time you spend with the toe in dorsi-flexion or the neck in forward flexion. You may feel a tingle in the sole of your feet, calves, hamstrings, glutes, lower back, mid-thoracic area, or even in the cervical spine. The posterior fascial chain runs from the top of your head to the big toes, so this stretch can also be used to good effect for unwinding any fascial restrictions in the muscles mentioned above. By contracting the quads, the hamstrings have to relax due to reciprocal inhibition
