Why you should stop Googling "best exercises for sciatica"

Sciatica is a widely accepted catch-all term people use to describe pain in the back, radiating down the back of the leg. It may surprise you to learn that sciatica itself is not a diagnosis, it's a symptom (with several possible causes) and it's used inconsistently, even among healthcare providers. 

Many conditions can cause or mimic sciatic pain including lumbar disc pathology, SI joint issues, piriformis syndrome, and more.  Each of these conditions requires a different approach and the wrong exercises could leave you feeling worse. 

There are plenty of great exercises for sciatica, but whether they're good for YOUR sciatica is another story.  Get evaluated to determine the source of your pain so you can get on the right treatment plan.
