Anyone here suffer or suffered from sciatica? any tips on how you have alleviated pain?
I have had it for the last 10 months or so, currently I am on the mend and its about a 2 on a scale of 0 to 10 with 0 been "fine" and 10 "drop on the floor and cant get up" I have a slight narrowed lumbosacral disc and slight scoliosis due to a short leg from a rectified (at birth) club foot.
I have tried in no particular order, Bowens, naturopathy, herbal concoctions, trigger point threapy, remedial massage, Pilates, Manipulative physio, chiropractors, Egoscue technique, EMF, Mind over pain, Reiki, traction...
It does stop me from doing things, It will flair up and I can be sore for a week or so after some activities, I want to get back to been fit enough to catch flies and swim in the pond. I currently do Pilate's once a week, stretch/yoga poses every night, and manage it by limiting sitting at home or moving heaps at work (desk bound job).
Diets ok, 9 weeks of Primal with minimal cheats. I still have some dairy 2-3 times a week and eat tomatoes, capsicums chillies etc so I will try and eliminate all dairy, nightshades, nuts and fruit for a month... Is there anything else to watchout for eating wise. I do take fishoil tablets and magnesium, silica and a BCAA sup.
