Acupuncture and electro-acupuncture also work well for managing the pain associated with sciatica. They are a useful pain management tool to be used to take the edge off the pain while you address the underlying need to build up the strength and flexibility of your back. I would recommend that you invest in an electro-acupuncture machine so that you can give yourself daily treatments at home. This can at least give you some control over your daily misery.
Back surgery is sometimes recommended but this should only be considered as a last resort. Once you have embarked on back surgery, there is no going back and frequently it may make the problem worse.

Poor posture is when your joints (shoulders, spine, hips, knees and ankles) do not align properly. The improper alignment causes some muscles to work harder than the others and become tense while the other muscles weaken.

It wasn’t the news I wanted to hear.

Any person can simply slip on these weights and continue with the daily routines. One can simply carry on with their regular work. The way one works out with weights in the gym, the finger weights work the similar way for the fingers. The weights help the muscle to relax and strengthen them.

In the majority of cases, changes to posture combined with strengthening the back muscles, through frequent gentle exercise, can offer the best long term solution. Flexion exercises that stretch your spine can take the pressure off the sciatic nerve. Your local physiotherapist can offer you an exercise program that will gradually build up your back muscles. Yoga has worked particularly well for me. For now, thankfully, I am pain free.
