I hope this is not just me and that it also works for you. When my RLS is really twanging away I have discovered that if I sit on my Swiss ball it eases the pain and the jerks, naturally I have no idea why.
If you have ever sat on a Swiss ball you will know that you need to make constant micro adjustments in your balance, these movements seem to neutralise my pain. I can also exaggerate the movements by rolling my hips wider and wider to get relief faster and hey presto!!
Now I would love to say it works every time but it works far more than it fails. The effect lasts…….well its so variable but I keep my Swiss ball in the lounge and just move onto it as I need to.
Try it, Swiss balls are not very expensive and most gyms have them if you want to try before you buy, it will release your lower back no matter what.
I have discovered that the Swiss ball needs to be pumped up to the maximum, really taught, if you sink into it too much the effect is less.
