Best Manual Technique for Hamstrings and Sciatica

Want an effective and easy to use, comfortable technique to improve hamstring extensibility and improve sciatic neurodynamics?

Need to improve sciatic neurodynamics, hip flexion, and IR? Here is my favorite technique using an EDGE Mobility Band to modulate and decrease the perception of stretch. After this, it's easy to load up with self neurodynamic tensioners progressing to deadlifts for loading!

Steps

  • wrap an EDGE Mobility Band lightly and as proximal on the patient's thigh as possible
  • apply inferior glide, hip long axis distraction, flexion, and IR passively
  • patient actively extends knee and dorsiflexes the ankle "kick heel toward the ceiling"
