the broad applicability and effectiveness of the methods of somatic training
Attain broad recognition of the field of somatic education as an easier way to recognize, release and reverse pain patterns and stress-related disorders, such as headache.
When someone has muscular or joint pain, muscular tensions are usually involved that cause the poain and restrict freedom of movement. Muscle/movement memory causes these muscular tensions and can be altered by somatic training, so that symptoms disappear and lasting improvements of function occur.
Stretching has limitations: it doesn't change muscle/movement memory very well. That may explain your experience. If stretching is the current "gold-standard" of therapy, somatic education is the "platinum-standard". It normalizes healthy muscle/movement memory faster and gets things done that strengthening and stretching can't accomplish. more at http://somatics.com/stretch.htm

Hi, Ben, As asked if there's another home exercise that's better than sit-ups. Yes. here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-UKYLwnKnw4 (may need to copy and paste) Also, you may stop doing
That depends on exactly where the pain is and what caused it -- some injury, usually. The following article explains sciatica and how to eliminate it. http://somatics.com/sciaticasymptoms-piriformissyndrome

No, for most people, they cannot be avoided; that would require them either to understand the cause and identify it in themselves before onset or already to have had a movement practice and healthy diet
