Is Seating The Worst Thing You Can Do When You Have Back Pain? Treating Your Back Pain & Sciatica Could Be As Easy As These Easy Movements. Sciatica serie, Part III
A lot of patients I treat for lower back pain are often surprised by how quick they improve after their first treatments...while at the same time thinking "if only I d had known what movement to do and which one to avoid..."
Let's talk about my patient Richard again. Before he made the decisions to look for additional help in treating his sciatica, he had been suffering for at least 4 weeks as he did not see much change in his symptoms when taking the pain killers he was prescribed by his doctor and he hated the side effect of drowsiness and constipation.
Richard also has a desk job. Sitting for long periods of time is notoriously not ideal when you suffer from acute back pain.
