    How to help Sciatica Pain?

    One of my known person have had sciatica for going on two years now.His doctor has prescribed a pain medication and it helps but the pain comes again in severe way.Since he works from 9am-5pm he really hate going work because of unbearable pain.What is the most common cause of Sciatica Pain? What else he can do for further treatment?Any surgery recommended?
    Healing is a matter of time, but it is sometimes also a matter of opportunity.

    Re: How to help Sciatica Pain?

    Sciatic pain is often caused by something like a bulging disc or stenosis pressing on a lower lumbar nerve...L5, S1, sometimes L4. You can find many helpful articles, exercise videos on exercises to help sciatic pain online. Use ice packs or heat over the lower lumbar level, whichever feels better.

    Another "exercise" that feels great and helps a lot:

    Lie on a flat surface like a carpeted floor on the back, with knees bent and feet flat on the floor. Place arms close to the sides with palms facing up toward the ceiling. Now relax. Breathe slowly and deeply from the belly. Do this from 2 to 5 minutes.

    Sciatic pain is very painful and debilitating. The only treatment that helped me was surgery as my central canal was almost completely closed and the nerves were being badly compressed.
