VIDEO: Exercises and Stretches To Relieve Sciatica Nerve Pain!

People who have Sciatica know all too well how painful and debilitating it can be. While there are several variations and causes of the condition, it’s generally characterized as back pain that originates in the buttocks and lower spine area which then radiates down the body.

Most people who suffer from it report pain in the thigh area, and for some it extends even further down to their feet. Sciatica is also commonly referred to as sciatic nerve pain because it’s caused by pressure, irritation, and/or pinching of the nerves that travel from the spinal cord to the sciatic nerves.

The areas surrounding the nerves in the lower back become inflamed and in turn a shooting, intense type of pain travels out along the affected nerves. This pain can be exacerbated when the person sneezes, coughs, or does something that puts pressure on the area and even regular day t day activities can cause it to suddenly flare up.

The most common treatment for sciatica includes a combination of pain medications to help manage the discomfort and limiting activities which tend to put stress on the lower back. Those who suffer re-current flare ups often know what causes it to act up and can avoid certain activities they have linked to the onset of pain. By resting and limiting activities the pain can be reduced and for most people, around 90%, it disappears completely within 3-6 weeks.

Sciatica has been known to affect the human body for hundreds of years and there are entire areas of ancient traditional medicine which focus on treating it. Some take the view that dietary or environmental changes can help cure it, while others posit that the best treatment is exercise. In fact, physical therapists and doctors often suggest patients do certain exercises that target the affected area and many people have found relief this way.

The video that follows shows how to do a one minute stretch routine that helps to relieve sciatica pain and speed up healing. It can be done in the comfort of your home and comments on the video show that it has helped many to get back to feeling normal and healthy again. Hopefully it will work for you as well if you suffer from sciatic nerve pain. Please help to inform others who may benefit from this by sharing it and stay positive!

The Most Effective Exercises To Get Rid Of That Double Chin Quickly.

There is a new phenomenon emerging in the ever changing and evolving tech world.  It is not centered on the latest and greatest gadget.  It is instead a side-effect stemming from the use of mobile phones, laptops, tablets and other similar devices.  It is a condition that dermatologists now call “tech neck,” which they blame for causing sagging skin and wrinkles in younger generations of users.

Those most affected by tech neck are persons aged 18-39.  On average they own three devices, which are the primary cause of the skin problem.  Tech neck refers to a specific crease located slightly above the collar bone which is caused by the repeated bending motions of the neck when looking down at the screen of a device.  These repetitive motions are causing younger people to experience wrinkles, sagging jowls and the appearance of double chins at increasingly younger ages.  What was once a late middle-age occurrence is now being seen in people as young as 18.

What can you do about it?  If you are worried about your devices causing unsightly wrinkles on your neck, a double chin, and sagging jowls, or just worried in general about how your body is naturally aging, then this video is for you.  It covers a range of easy to do exercises which tone your jawline and help to reduce the appearance of any double chin.  If you do the video daily for two weeks you should see results.  Additional benefits that may be gained from the exercises shown include an increased range of motion in your neck and reduced stiffness.  Plus, you may even tone your face and chin so well that you get a naturally achieved facelift!

Would you be happy to strengthen and flatten your abs without doing hundreds of crunches? There is a much more effective way to get results!  Most of us sit during a large part of our day.  It is often hard to fit in a workout before we leave for the office, or even if we work from home, frustrating our desire to get in shape.

The VIDEO you are about to watch below, offers a logical solution which focuses on those abs that we’d like to flatten and firm…ALL WHILE SITTING IN A CHAIR!  Denise Austin, from the YouTube channel BeFit, demonstrates 6 easy-to-follow moves that focus on: SCULPTING AND SLIMMING THE WAISTLINE AND TIGHTENING THE OBLIQUE MUSCLES.



You pull one knee at a time into your abs, feeling the pull from the navel to the spine.  This move TARGETS THE LOWER ABS.


This more advanced move works the entire abdominal area.


Leaning slightly to the side, you do the same move as #2, alternating sides, using your ab muscles to lift your knees into your stomach.  Repetitions of this exercise SLIMS THE WAISTLINE.


With your arms bent up at the elbows, you twist from side to side.  This move KEEPS YOUR CIRCULATION GOING THROUGH TO THE SPINE.


Alternate reaching across and touching the floor, while keeping your feet flat on the ground. This move works those stubborn LOVE HANDLES.


Holding onto the arms of the chair, pull your knees into your abs and lift your whole body off the chair, and hold yourself up as long as you can.  This not only STRENGTHENS YOUR CORE (which is so important to keeping your back pain-free), but WORKS YOUR ENTIRE ARM.

Watch these moves demonstrated in the footage below, to achieve the results you want!

How You Can Strengthen Damaged Knee Joints and Heal The Pain In Your Knees Naturally, Without Surgery or Pills

I don’t know about you, but my knees always hurt when I’m going up a flight of stairs. I was a runner for many years, and although it kept me in shape, the wear and tear on my knees as well as aging, has weakened them.
Whether your knees currently hurt or not, the following video is for you; eventually everyone experiences knee pain, and the more we strengthen them the better. Dr. Jo, a physical therapist and Doctor of Physical Therapy presents 3 excellent solutions for strengthening your knees.

The key to KNEE STRENGTHENING is to REBUILD JOINT STRENGTH. This will not only REDUCE PAIN (if you already have it), but will act as a PREVENTATIVE for knee joint erosion as you age. Dr. Jo emphasizes the importance of maintaining correct form when doing the following 3 KNEE STRENGTHENING EXERCISES:

For this move you can actually use a step in your house, or a couple of hard covered books if your step is too high. As you will see, it is important to move slowly (using your muscles not momentum) to go up and down. It is also important to always keep your bent knee behind your toes.

Again, keeping your knee behind your toes, you alternate lunges with each leg, keeping your upper body straight and maintaining a controlled motion.

While keeping your legs shoulder width apart, you lower your rear as if you are going to sit, using a low chair or coffee table as the object to tap so you don’t go down too far. It is key that you not go fully down into a sitting position, and once again keep your knees behind those toes!

Dr. Jo further emphasizes the importance of mobilizing and stretching the knee, before strengthening it. She focusses on correct form so that the knee actually gets strengthened; following the moves you are about to view accurately is key to not moving in ways that could do further damage to the joint. Doing these 3 exercises daily will go a long way in strengthening your knees and getting pain relief!
