Anyone here familiar with Sciatica?


Recommended Posts

I went to physical therapy, and it was a huge waste of time. I went for months and saw no progress. Maybe the therapist just sucked.

My father had a lot of trouble with it which was caused by bone spurs pinching the nerves. A quick little surgery to bore out those spurs worked wonders for him. The spurs will eventually come back, but a re-boring should do the trick again.

My doctor told me I can go under the knife, but said it should be a last resort. Maybe I should consider it at this point.

Dude I also have it and ill tell ya what helps me. Find a pull up bar but instead of doing pull ups just hang there for a few minutes. You can actually feel your muscles start to losen up and it will buy you a few hours of relief at a time.

Try doing reverse hyper extensions. You get a similar effect to the hanging upside down that LouDog mentioned or using an inversion table. You essentially want to put your lower back in traction.

actually ive never done it hanging upside down. I just hang on a bar like you are going to do pullups but dont pull yourself up, just hang

I have had it for a while, and just wanted to see if anyone one the board has it and how you cope.

I take muscle relaxers and anti inflammatory but it only helps so much. Honestly the best way to make the pain go away is laying on the floor.

Ive had it.. I hurt my lower back a few years ago and had it bad for a while.. Its when the herniated disc pushed on the sciatic nerve.. it really sux..
