    Stretches to relieve pinched nerve pain in hip?

    I have pain in my left hip and down my leg. I did have a herniated disc in the lower part of my back, but I think in has gone back in. I still have the hip pinched-nerve feeling though. I stretch by arching by back and it helps. I stand against the wall and stretch with arms above head and on my toes. That helps, but once I sit and try to get up, I get the hip pinched-nerve pain again. What else can I do to maybe stop the pain or put the disc back in place?

    Hi there, Margie -


    I know this is an older question, but I saw this and wondered if you'd come up with any new exercises or methods for easing this pain? I know many people try yoga or chiropractics who have the symptoms you're describing, since often keeping the muscles from seizing and moving the spine in a way that takes pressure off the disc will help that hip pain. If you did find a treatment, perhaps you could share it here? It might be helpful for someone else in our community who is having the same issue.


    Here are some links you might enjoy.  Be well!
