Sciatic nerve pain often comes from tight muscles along its pathway. The hamstrings, IT band, and adductors can all contribute to compressing the sciatic nerve. These stretches might help. More sciatic nerve pain stretches:
The first stretch is for the inner hamstrings and adductor muscles. Try to stay in good alignment during the stretch.
Next is a sciatic nerve glide or sciatic nerve flossing. This helps get movement if the nerve is compressed somewhere, and it also helps activate the whole nervous system.
Finally is a three way hamstring stretch with a strap. This will also help stretch the IT band and adductors as well.

Indeed, it has been estimated that as many as four out of every five people in the world will have to consult a medical professional at some point in their lives with a back pain problem. For those who have never suffered back pain, it is possible that they can sympathize with those who are regular sufferers, but it is unlikely that they can truly appreciate the amount of pain and suffering that back pain brings. Only a fellow back pain sufferer can truly sympathize and empathize with other sufferers who have been stricken with a similar problem to theirs. It is also relevant to note that the incidence of chronic back pain problems is on the increase, and that there are probably more sufferers nowadays than there have ever been at any previous time in history.
