If you have sciatic nerve and hip pain but can’t find the time to alleviate your symptoms because you sit all day at work, then try these simple and effective variations that can be done anywhere.

The first stretch is a performs stretch known at the Figure-4 Piriformis Stretch which is modified to be performed in a sitting position.

The next stretch is a seated hamstring stretch. Also important for stretching the tissue in the back of the leg that gets tight and painful when you experience sciatic nerve symptoms.
