How Successful Is PT For Back Pain & Sciatica?
There are some tips you can follow to relieve your sciatica pain on your own. These can be done before coming in for treatments, or in tandem with your physical therapy treatments:
• Performing gentle stretching exercises.
• Avoiding prolonged sitting. Make sure to get up every 30 minutes and change positions frequently. • Putting a pillow behind your knees when sleeping on your back or between your knees when sleeping on your side. • Using your legs to bend down when picking up objects off the floor, rather than using your back.
• Alternating ice and heat on the buttock to reduce inflammation.
