Hi all I have sciatica pain from a bad back. I have been to a chiro to help realign my spine but I need something else.
Has anyone tried physio for this? Anything else helped?
Thanks in advance

I am 30 weeks and having issues with my sciatic ... My OB suggested massage, physio and Panadine forte...heat packs and the medicated heat packs u get from the chemist ... It's all made the pain bearable

I get this from time to time, have just recently gotten better just by making sure I stand up from my desk (8-5 desk job) at least every 20 minutes, even if to just walk to the other end of the room.

I have done physio and osteo, both help. Also heatpacks and regular stretching. Mobic can be taken (always on a full stomach!) and that helped too. You need a script for it though I think. Otherwise ibuprofen... (I don't think you can take either if you are UTD though - definitely not ibuprofen)
Good luck, it can get really painful

Just found my fact sheet from my GP, it says rest, exercises and medication.
Look up core exercises. Core strengthening helped me.

Thanks for the replies :-)
Unfortunately too much exercise is out of the question. The back problems have made nerves be pinched/blocked and made my legs not have full strength. So 20 mins of flat walking is my max before my legs get tired
I'm not UTD...hopefully in the next couple of months I will be!
I'm going to book into the physio soon to see if it will help and continue my chiro appts too :-)

it takes a few chiro appointments to get it under control. I would try swimming it helped me a lot and being in the water you are putting less strain on your body.

Heat packs, stretching and yoga. The only cure was birth
