Sciatica issues - help OT Med types
I have taken pills, gotten aids with a twist of Ebola, given and received blow jobs, countless anal probes and yet the pain is still tough. The old right calf feels like a perpetual Charlie horse. Any suggestions other than dying in a fire would be appreciated.

80% of sciatica is caused by herniation of the L4 disc ( I wrote my graduate thesis on this subject). If medications aren't working then you should seek physical therapy, stretch your hips & lower extremities, strengthen your abdominal mm & core, lose weight and correct your ergonomics in activities of daily life.

physical therapy stretches help. if you're not too macho, look into yoga, it will be very beneficial.

Get your doctor to prescribe some physical therapy. Let the bad man make you hurt. The good news is that there's a very good chance that one of the medieval torture methods is actually going to be something that works for you. The bad news is torture.

The old tennis ball in the glute void works for me. Roll that pain away. I also do knee to opposite shoulder pull with great results. Good luck

You might consider buying a new wallet. Look for a bi-fold rather than tri-fold wallet.


Good advice. I wear my wallet in a front pocket. It made my sciatica go away in a couple of weeks.

I exercise my way out of it every time. It's the only thing that works for me. Usually three or four days of continual movement/walking etc is enough to do the trick.

Don't want to get into the whole chiropractor argument, but ....

My sciatica pain was so bad that, at it's worst, I was scared to get in my truck and drive anywhere because it could flare up at any time and cause me to lose control of the vehicle.

I went to a chiropractor and my sciatica problem was completely gone in a couple of weeks. Honestly, I felt substantial relief after the 1st treatment.

For people with chronic sciatica, I hear inversion tables are very effective treatment tools.

Yep, mine is screwed. Roid shots take care of it even though my left leg is numb.

As mentioned above you, inversion tables show significant improvements in decreased pain severity frequency and duration in many studies and in practice among people suffering with aberrant disc behavior.

You can buy one at most sports outlets. I'd recommend using one that sets the fulcrum at the thighs as opposed to the ankles bc you don't really need your ankle and knee joints decompressed.

If did that, I would black out all together. Got a very bad ticker. Just laying flat, I loose my breath. 6' tall, 170 lbs. Not a fatty.

L4 has behaving. Been a bit over a year from last roid shot.

re: Sciatica issues - help OT Med types
Here is your answer....


It showed up around 5 yrs ago....nagged the frick out of me in lower right hip/leg area ..funny thing...zanax seemed to releive it some....massage never worked, just seemed like the area deep in the joint couldn't be manipulated by hands...someone did tell me to use a tennis ball...I did and man did it release severe tension and pain....basically place ball while laying on floor Unger your hip area that hurts and roll ball around using your body weight on the pain area...it burned and totally warmed that area up and loosened...however did not cure pain until....

I got back into gym 5 days a week....I do elliptical trainer everyday for 30 minutes, seated cycle for 10 and stair climber for 10 minutes and ab work....I also do weights... After about a month(been back working out for 3 months)I forgot about the sciatica and then realized, hey where is the pain....it was gone,,,I dont even know it's there anymore....tbh I had been really frustrated and nagged badly by it...so glad it's gone...that's my story

re: Sciatica issues - help OT Med types
3 things I did that pretty ugh eliminated it.

1. Stretch
2. Started carrying my wallet in my front pocket.
3. Got a wobble chair.


I have almost zero back issues now, only thing that bothers me now is standing for long periods of time.
