Sciatica and Hot Tubs

Husband finally going tomorrow for an MRI for what everyone has felt was sciatica. Also, does anyone with sciatica get leg pain after using a hot tub. Thanks

I have been told that heat is not good for inflammation, so yes, a hot tub could make sciatic pain worse.

Re: Sciatica and Hot Tubs

Cold packs are good for imflammation. When I suffered with S1 radiculopathy, which is a severe nerve irritation, I used ice packs.....
