I think it depends on what's causing....since mine's a muscle (piriformis), a massage actually helps. Disc...no clue. Hope you can find a solution.

Rampage, my piriformis is horribly tight, sometimes just touching that part hurts! Sucks, doesn't it-and rubbing it out HURTS!!!!!!!!!!

I SO AGREE!!!!!! WOOF!!!!

Have you tried the "tennis ball" trick yet? That actually is quite helpful, although it too hurts!!!

Good to hear from you - how's life??? Same-old, same-old?
