how to unpinch your sciatic nerve

I do Hapkido, a form of martial arts. Whenever I move my hip in a certain fashion (i.e. a roundhouse kick) there is some pain - like the nerve behind my hip is being pinched. I think its called the sciatic nerve. Is there some stretches I can do or anyything to get it

Re: how to unpinch your sciatic nerve

Hi...two mucles often cause a pinched or inflamed sciatic is the piriformis muscle which the sciatic nerve
runs through and the other is the posas muscle. You need to
stretch these muscles out otherwise they spasm and cause
irritation and bother the sciatic nerve. Find a good PT or look on line for some good stretches for these two muscles. Karen

Re: how to unpinch your sciatic nerve

Your martial arts instructor should be able to make some suggestions on stretches. My son has done this for 5 years and our instructor is very good about giving the students stretches for any problems that they might have.
