Stretching sciatica exercises for a herniated disc: rise on elbows

If you have any questions or comments – please visit, and start or join the discussion about this video.

This exercise targets: sciatica pain caused by a herniated disc
For this exercise, you will need: an exercise mat

Lie down on the exercise mat, on your stomach, in a prone position. Prop your upper body up on your elbows, but make sure to keep your hips on the floor. People who suffer from sciatica pain from a herniated disc often cannot tolerate this position at first, so this movement should be performed slowly and carefully.

Always consult your spine specialist before starting any type of stretches and exercises.
Perform extension exercises regularly, if possible every 2 hours, or follow the recommendations of your spine specialist.
Since bending over or bending forward counteracts the effects of extension exercises, people with a herniated disc should avoid doing this.
After doing stretching exercises, you should continue to perform exercises that will strengthen your lower back muscles and abdominals.
Strong lower back muscles and abdominals will help you prevent sciatica pain caused by a herniated disc.

Number of repetitions:
Start with holding the press-up position for 5 seconds per repetition. Repeat 10 times.
Gradually increase the press-up position to 30 seconds per repetition. Repeat 10 times.

CALL +372 610 9434, INNOMEDICA MEDICAL CENTRE, NARVA MNT 7, 3RD FLOOR, TALLINN, ESTONIA. DISCS ARE HEALED WITH THE COMPUTERIZED DIGITAL DISC DECOMPRESSION DEVICE WITH EMG BIOFEEDBACK FOR A RESONABLE COST.. Our results are excellent! At our clinic, you will recieve top notch care from the expert doctors and therapists who will provide you with everything you need to recover from your disc condition. Programs can include various combinations of Trigenics, physiotherapy, exercise rehabilitation, osteopathic medicine and chiropractic if needed.

Research shows that Digital Disc Decompression Therapy with EMG biofeedback effectively enhances the healing process and provides pain relief and functional movement which enables most patients to regain their quality of life and return to active and productive living.

With Digital Disc Decompression, you can now receive scientifically proven, effective treatment for disabling low back, neck, radiating leg & arm pain, and headaches. Digital Decompression effectively relieves pain associated with disc herniation, degenerative discs, posterior facet syndromes, and muscle spasms by reducing the compressive pressure on spinal discs, nerves and facet joints. The decompressive effect is created by doctor-programmed, computerized, digitally-modulated disc distraction and positioning.

At the Oolo Neck and Back Clinic in the INNOMEDICA Medical Centre , you will receive the best care possible using the most advanced treatment methods and rehabilitation equipment. Our Digital Disc Decompression Device may also utilize Electromyographic (EMG) readings of target area spinal muscle activity during the treatment which are recorded and monitored. The EMG activity is displayed to the patient who is then able to monitor and modify their own muscle activity neurologically. In this way, the patient is provided with a means to retrain their spinal musculature to be less contracted and more relaxed. This is referred to as biofeedback retraining. EMG Biofeedback retraining during decompression treatment is important as remaining chronic muscle spasm associated with disc conditions may otherwise cause some immediate recompression of nerves and discs following treatment. If this occurs, it can actually cause a worsening of the condition! The Oolo Neck and Back Clinic is one of the only clinics which provides you with advanced Digital Disc Decompression with EMG biofeedback.

In addition to Digital Disc Decompression, treatment methods at our centre can also include multidisciplinary combinations of Osteopathic Medicine, Chiropractic care, Acupuncture, Laser Physiotherapy, and exercise rehabilitation.

Our Goal is to ensure that you becomes pain free within as few short weeks of their first visit and to then teach them how to keep themselves free from pain thereafter.
