Yoga Poses to Help Relieve Sciatica and Lower Back Pain In Just Minutes

Home Fitness Yoga Poses to Help Relieve Sciatica and Lower Back Pain In Just Minutes

Are you looking to relieve your back from constant pain and finally get back a normal life?

I was in the same situation not long ago. At 45 I developed pain in my lower back after years of working at an office and sit for most of the day. This caused strain on my back.

At the time I felt a few twinges but didn’t think anything of it. I had a few episodes of back pain in the past but it was never severe enough for me to seek treatment.

Until one day the pain increased steadily and became very severe and began radiating down the back of my thigh at times.  Was like an electric, burning, pinching, or pins-and-needles feeling in the same area down to my toes.

I couldn’t get off the bed, tie my own shoes or even walk down the steps without any help.

I spent so much time using heat packs, cold packs, a theracane, tennis ball, you-name-it to get the trigger points to release the pain and muscles, only to wake the next morning & have them back again with a vengeance…

At 45 I was living like I was 77 years old.

Doctors didn’t find anything worng with my spine so they recommended physical therapy. I helped a bit for a brief while. It was tedious and took too much time to go to each session. Also was very expensive to keep going 3 times a week. I felt the progress wasn’t fast enough. Maybe they were more interested in my money?

That’s when I friend who has been working out with a yoga instructor for a year mentioned to giving this program called yoga burn a go. I discovered that Yoga represents a special discipline of stretching and tightening the body, while keeping is safe from harm and exposed to less injuries. Therefore, many people turn to yoga as a wonderful practice, which can also help amazingly in treating sciatic nerve and back pain.

I took her for her word and started doing flexes in my living room 4 times a week.

It was amazing and I felt how my body slowly healed itself week after week.

Few weeks later I don’t have any excruciating back pain. My lower back and core have been strengthened and now I can walk straight, jog for a few miles, take my grand-kids to the park and even do gardening in the yard.

Here are the 3 best moves I did using Yoga-Burn exercises that relieve my back pain and strength my abdominal muscles…And did I say helped me lose 10 pounds along the way?
