How long does it take to stretch a muscle?
The overuse of a muscle is when you overwork or tire out your muscle, and it can be very dangerous. If you carry too much weight for too long or if you exercise for way too long, your muscles will become cramped, and not only will they ache but you could end up pulling a muscle or a hamstring. It's important to stretch before exercising and to not overwork yourself. Know your limits!

I found good exercises on YouTube using "sciatica" as the search word.
A stretch reflex occurs in the muscles. When a muscle is stretched, the muscle spindles are activated and they send information to the brain that then responds telling the muscle to contract. This is a protective mechanism in the body that prevents muscles from being overstretched. When a muscle is rapidly stretched, elastic energy is stored in the muscle and the stretch reflex causes a quick contraction that can be used in sports/activities requiring a…
