Sciatica and Lotus Pose
I hear many men complain about pain radiating from their buttock down to their leg, thus inhibiting their ability to work out or perform basic functions without pan. Sciatica is common, usually the result of pain to the sciatic nerve, and can be a lifelong struggle. Lotus Pose can offer some relief, particularly for those looking to avoid medications. Lotus Pose or Padmasana is a hip opener reminiscent of the elementary school "criss-cross applesauce" position with feet tucked up. It's an easy posture to start the day. An ideal one to do while meditating or taking a few minutes to yourself to wish the pain away, open your hips while opening your mind.
