As many of you know, I have been using repeated motions to treat any "sciatic nerve" pain that I've had in the last year. I rarely ever notice any discomfort in the area, and it dissipates immediately with 10 repetitions of sideglides or lumbar extensions. While studying for the OCS last week, I thought I'd test my Active SLR bilaterally to see the difference due to my history of "nerve pain" on that side. There was a difference present and thought it would be interesting to have a video showing how what appears to be "flexibility deficits" can actually be secondary to neural tension, and thus, easily changed. Check out the video below to see a quick assessment and treatment with rapid changes. Normally, an evaluation would be much more thorough, but this is a quick view of how to break down the Multi-Segmental Flexion test and view rapid changes.
