You might not have enough hip motion.
Why this matters:
Hip motion, not flexibility is important for back health and pain relief. Flexibility is the range of motion that you have available, but you need to move at the hip to minimize the repetitive strain that occurs on your back. Not to say that you should never be moving at your back. However, more likely than not, if sitting has been an issue for you since your sciatica pain, you’ll probably need more hip movement.
Try this stretch, the Hip Rocker. You don’t need any equipment other than a chair. I usually recommend 15-20 pulses before going about your day. This stretch will emphasize the hip joint, allowing you to truly move there, rather than your back.
