Now what????

Well, I was doing pretty well lately, and then today for no apparent reason, a flare-up. Man this sucks. I know that I was on my feet a lot the last few days, but really what brought this on. I feel like I did about 3 to 4 weeks ago. I am not doing any stretches today and just taking it easy. I even...

Where is everybody?????

Hey People.... I guess that we are all doing better. It is good not to see too many new posts I guess. I hope that everyone is doing well. Update on me.... I am finally able to walk for longer distances, even shopping with my wife and out to dinner. The pain is virtually non-existent, however, my hi...

Chair....

Hey Rupert I too am looking into better sitting alternatives. I sit at a desk most of the day working on a computer. I am able to get up and move around whenever, however, sitting at a computer is not the best on the back. I was reading that exercise balls are good for sitting since they make you le...

New exercises???/

Hey Randolf I saw your post, and I was wondering what your new exercises were and if there is anyway that you might be able to enlighten me with some of them. This is a frustrating bout of sciatica. Some days are better than others... but you know what I mean. If you could let me know what flossing ...

Walking still sucks

Hey Randolf Glad to hear that the back brace is working out well for you. I feel so much more comfortable and the pain level is virtually not there until I try to walk. I can honestly walk for about 5 minutes before my leg starts to bother me. I am doing more agressive stretching now and I am hoping...

Hamstring

Hey SeafordMdf

The goal is always to get the leg to 90 degrees. That is why initially my butt was 9 inches from the wall. As the muscle loosens, you will be able to move your butt closer to the wall. The hamstring is not really being stretched if the leg is bent. Good luck. Be posting.

Time will heal all.....

Hey Rupert I, like Randolf, have virtually no lower back pain, which is common with sciatica. However, walking has been difficult for me this time around. I am in very little pain right now which is a "god sent", but when I walk too much, my lower back gets sore and my left leg gets sore. I am able ...

Update

Hey Dean Well here it is. The one program was too intense for this time with my sciatica. They talk about muscle imbalances... like you. They have you assess your weakneeses and then work on the problem areas. My problems were too many since the sciatica has me leaning to the left right now. I am st...

Thanks Randolf

Hey Randolf

Thanks for your uplifting story. I am feeling much better today. I was wondering if you have an email address that I could send you something. It is something that I think is pretty cool. It's my way of saying "thank you" for always posting positive things. Be posting.
