Way to go Randolf

Hey Randolf. Way to go. You are in my prayers for a speedy recovery. I know that you have had a tough time with your sciatica problem. I hope that this next cycle is easier for you and that you will heal quickly. I am slowly getting better and am able to play golf again, albeit not everyday as I wou...

Pain Relief

conchi The only pain medications I would take were Advil. It didn't give me much relief, but any port in a storm so to speak. I have a very high pain tolerance, and that helped. However; I have never had pain as bad as that sciatica attack. I try hard to maintain the stretching exercises, and someti...

Keep on hanging in there...

conchita I have been reading your posts. I too had suffered my first bout of sciatica this past April. I couldn't do anything for approximately 6 weeks. Then I started walking even if the pain was there. It took me 3 months util I was pain free enough to try the stretching exercises. I also bought a...

Actions speak louder than words...

Dean - no reason to defend yourself. All anyone has to do is read the articles posted on the site and read through the forum to see that there are lots of success stories out there. I just had a friend walk out of my office who had back surgery 5 years ago, and he is far worse off than I have ever b...

Take it easy...

Hey Lisa I too have suffered this year with sciatica. It took me 3 months till I could even begin doing Dean's beginning exercises. All I could do was walk and sometimes that was hard. When I was virtually pain free, I started the exercises very moderately, and only the ones that did not cause any p...

Happy Holidays to all of you RYB people out there...

Man it is good to hear such positve feed back from everyone. To Brad S. Hang in there. This does work and there are days when you feel that nothing is going to change. I too had sciatica down my entire left leg into my foot. Took 3 months for all of the pain to subside. Still get some tightness and ...

Be careful...

Hello and welcome to the forum. I too had a sever case of sciatica back in April of this year. It took me almost 3 months before I could do the basic stretches found in Dean's book. I have a hot tub and I can tell you that there were times that it seemed to help, however, during the early on stages ...

The book works....

Hey all of you out there still undecided about Dean's book. I know that this stuff works. However, you have to take your time until you have no pain before taking on any of the strengthening exercises. The mild stretches will be OK, but even if they hurt, stop doing them. Remember, your body will te...

Been there done that

Hey I had the same thing this spring. It hurt big time. Same pain down to my foot. Finally just shut down and totally relaxed for 10 weeks before doing any exercises. I am finally feeling fine, some times there is a little tightness in my lower back and buttocks, but I relax for a few days and all i...

Celebrate.....

Hey Frank.... As the old saying goes, this too shall pass. We are all impatient when we hurt. I am glad that you took the time and energy to help yourself. Keep up the good work and it is nice to see such a positive result from the exercises.

I'm back

Really take it easy. If you are experiencing any pain during your stretches, than stop doing them. All I did for the first 10 weeks was let the pain subside with very little exercise besides walking. The pain was excruciating and I thought it would never go away. Just shut down for a while, let the ...

This too shall pass...

Hey, been there done that. All that you guys are saying was my nightmare. Time does heal and the exercises are awesome. My body would not let me do the exercises for approximately 10 weeks. I waited for all of the pain to subside beford beginning, because initially while trying to do the exercises e...

Please rest

I can't emphasize the fact that you have to rest it first. That does not mean laying in bed for weeks. It means doing light exercises like walking daily. I was trying to do the exercises early on but that just irritated the injury. It wasn't until approximately 10 weeks that it didn't bother me to d...

Hang in there....

Welcome to the forum. I like you am a very active 50 year old. This spring I hurt my back and had sciatic pain down my left leg into my foot. Pain in the butt - literally. That was then, this is now. I have been doing Dean's exercises off and on since healing but I wasn't ready to try for approximat...
