This exercise targets: sacroiliac joint
For this exercise, you will need: an exercise mat
Lie down on your back with your hips and head on the exercise mat. Both your knees are bent, and your feet are flat on the floor. Put your hands behind one thigh and gently pull the knee toward your chest. Slowly pump the knee at the top of the range of this motion three to four times. Make sure to leave your hips on the floor. Do not force the stretch, and ensure you feel comfortable while you’re performing it. Return to the starting position and repeat. Repeat the same motion with your other leg.
Before starting any type of stretches and exercises, always consult your spine specialist.
Exercises for sciatic pain from sacroiliac joint dysfunction will help you restore the range of motion and alleviate irritation of the sciatic nerve.
Do not force the stretch, and make sure you feel comfortable while you’re performing it.
Include exercises for sacroiliac joint pain in your routine pelvic stabilization. “Wall squats” to strengthen the muscles are one example.
Wall squats: Press your back against the wall and squat with your knees forming a 90 degree angle. Keep the weight on your heels. Repeat 10 times, 3 times a day.
Your doctor might also recommend pilates exercises, because they focus on stabilizing the pelvic girdle which, in turn, stabilizes the sacroiliac joint.
Number of repetitions:
Repeat this stretching exercise 10 times with each leg.

Sciatica is one of those painful conditions that can literally last for a lifetime. That’s because most of the traditional treatments for it, like cortisone injections, ultrasound, heat treatments, drugs, and so on never address the root cause of the problem.
First, understand that most cases of sciatica are caused by an underlying condition such as piriformis syndrome, a herniated disc, spinal stenosis, or spondylolisthesis.
Now each of those conditions are different. But each one is either directly caused by or at the least indirectly influenced by muscle imbalances.
If your sciatic nerve is getting squeezed as it passes next to or through a tight piriformis muscle (in your glutes), or other muscle imbalances is pulling your spine in such as way that the nerve gets pinched as it exits your spinal column, it stands to reason that stretching the tight muscle will help.
And most of the time it does. As a matter of fact, I want you to try this simple stretch right now – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fm3IYkMRRrI Watch this video and give it a try.
Did you try it? As you can feel, it doesn’t take much of a stretch to make a big difference in leg pain.
This stretch will help loosen up some of the tight muscles like the piriformis most often associated with sciatica for almost immediate relief. But remember, getting long-term sciatica pain relief requires addressing the underlying muscle imbalances and other related causes.
