Exercising with sciatica: Here’s how to do it, according to the experts

Exercising with sciatica might seem like an impossible task if you suffer from the condition, but it could alleviate your symptoms, experts believe. The sciatic nerve is the longest in your body, starting with nerve roots located in your lumbar spine (lower back) which then run through your hips, bum, and legs, down to your feet. 

According to Spine Health, sciatica pain affects 10-40% of the population and refers to diagnosable symptoms like numbness, pain, and tingling sensations in your back and legs caused by a myriad of factors like aging or a herniated disc. For the majority of people, acute (mild) sciatica eases within four to six weeks without medical intervention, but for others, it can develop into a chronic lifelong condition.
