One thing that concerned her was popping in my hip and lower spine area when I do Bicycle leg extensions fully. She thought the shifting could be causing Sciatic irritation. Its fine if I don't go to full extension. gg GG -- On a very quick glance, I didn't see a description of what you're calling ...

Caitie -- I'm glad that you're being so proactive with your recovery. But, and this is a heavy BUT , give yourself time to recover. Keep any exercise low key until you have the pain under control. If the exercise helps reduce the pain, great! But don't depend on the medications to get you through th...

Hi M -- You were fortunate to find someone who could (and would) work on muscles that we often ignore -- or don't know about. We so often focus on strengthening and stretching the large, superficial muscles and we forget the role that the smaller, but critical, linkages play. Dean's exercises get to...

Yeah, that's something I'm working on. There was extensive editing done on this forum program to minimize file size and a lot of features were cut. I hope to add them back in eventually.

Any problem with doubling up on the exercises that I can't do when I get home? Hi 8251 -- I think Bill's right on....hold off on the injections. I don't know anyone who's had any permanent relief from them. As to increasing the exercises when you're home, that would depend on how often you're home ...

Hi Ray -- Welcome to the forum. I can empathize with the relief that a night or two of 5-6 hours of sleep brings, having just had my first couple such nights after about three months with a session of sciatica. Do incorporate the basic exercises into your daily routine -- maybe not all at once, but ...

I'm remembering what the midwife said to my wife before the birth of our first baby: the baby comes just before you're sure you're going to die. Perhaps the sciatic pain finally goes just before you think you're going to die if you have to do those damned exercises one more time!! Boy, that's about...

Hi Randolph -- Thanks for the reply. As you suggest, there probably have been no replies other than yours and Dana's because people aren't familiar with SIJ syndrome and, so, had nothing to say. I have pursued SIJ syndrome with the physical therapist I'm seeing. (My doctor had initially referred me ...

Hi Guest #1 and Randolph -- Dean beat me to a response. The shifted cobra is done with the pelvis flat to the floor.
