"At last a Simple Way to Get Rid of Sciatic Pain Without Medication!"
The Art Turtle
The film quality is reasonable, the purpose behind the exercises is well explained, and the exercises are sufficiently demonstrated, with very good instructions.
William R. Drake
She is very personable, and you only need to watch this video once before you can do these stretches yourself when you feel like it.

In hopes of controlling the pain from my sciatic problem, I decided to check out this DVD in spite of its mixed reviews.

Kathi Casey's three exercises (combined with deep breathing to bring oxygen to the area of concern) are designed to stretch the piriformis muscle that goes across the butt (as well as other muscles). When that muscle gets tense or tight, it puts pressure on the sciatic nerve and causes pain. In some cases of sciatica, the pain is relieved or avoided by the stretching of this muscle. She advocates doing the exercise program daily, whether a sciatic problem is active or not.

One Amazon reviewer focused on how impossible it is for the average person to do these exercises. After reviewing the DVD, I find that assessment very puzzling. First of all, Casey makes it clear that you do not need to do all three exercises, but just one or two of them. Secondly, she shows variations of the first two in order to accommodate different fitness levels. I am 65 years old, do not have a flexible body, and have not done a regular yoga routine in 35 years. I have no trouble doing at least "very modified" versions of her first two exercises (not always bending as far forward as she does, etc.), and doing her third exercise sufficiently. If someone is "heavy-set" and/or has a REALLY inflexible body, maybe they can't do any of these exercises (as modified), but I have to imagine that most people can do at least one or two of them (as modified).

Kathi Casey, who demonstrates the exercises, is not a super-model and the DVD, while "adequate," is not some hi-tech production filmed on the shores of Hawaii. WHO CARES? The film quality is reasonable, the purpose behind the exercises is well explained, and the exercises are sufficiently demonstrated, with very good instructions.

This workout is comprised of 3 stretches to get rid of sciatica. I am glad to know of them and have incorporated it into my yoga practice. It has helped a lot. She is very personable, and you only need to watch this video once before you can do these stretches yourself when you feel like it.

Review on Get Rid of Sciatic Pain for Good with Kathi Casey

My suggestion is Do NOT BUY THIS DVD unless you are in the upper 2% percentile of athletic prowess. Four people witnessed this DVD with me. One a yoga teacher, one a Tai Chi teacher, and two English teachers and myself a Teacher Trainer for Art Teachers who wish to teach in the public schools. The presentation is misleading and irresponsible. I was very disappointed. The presentation does not take into consideration the audience she is marketing the tape to reach and help. She gives no simple lead in exercises that someone with painful sciatica can do. Her presentation ignores the first and most important aspect of teaching. Know your audience, communicate to their needs, and present levels of entry that are reachable.

Her approach is friendly, and she is probably a very nice person, and she probably meant well. She exhibits the fact that she knows and can do yoga on very high level. She is very flexible.

I just need information from someone who is more conscious in her teaching. I have done gentle yoga off and on for years, but my sciatica is painful and Kathi Casey gives no real entry yoga postures. Most of her exercises would be better received if she included using a chair or props that would in reality be much safer, easier and doable at the beginning when simple moves create more sciatic. One of her poses, I have myself done on the edge of my bed for years. It is a helpful pose, but it has not cured my sciatica.

The following 4 misleading marketing statements are on the outside casing of the DVD I purchased for $14.95. I wish I could get my money back.

I've been bothered by sciatic pain for the last few years. Can't ride in a car very long or sit in a meeting without discomfort. These exercises have helped to ease this problem and feel great while I'm doing them. Kathi explains what causes the pain and why the exercises help to prevent the problem. These hip openers are a great addition to any warm up routine.

The stretches here definitely feel good and are different than the same old "chair stretch" suggested everywhere. I particularly like the incorporation of accupressure. I wish it had included some suggestions for strength training, since real recovery from sciatica/piriformis syndrome should really include strengthening and stretching. But it is simple and easy to follow, especially if you are already familiar with yoga. You're not going to be cured after 1 viewing, obviously, but it is easy enough to do on your own in front of the TV.

I got the amazon instant download for $7.99, and it was worth it. Would probably be mad if I bought the $20 video for only 3 stretches though.

I was in horrible pain and had diminished mobility four years before and following three knee replacement surgeries. The surgeries were all within a one year period. I FINALLY found relief with Kathi Casey. This DVD is very important to me. I now know that if I follow Kathi's routine every night that I will be pain free the following day. What a relief!
