I can attest to how horrible sciatica pain can be!! It is caused by pressure on one of the lumbar vertebrae (the lowest five in the back above the tailbone also known as L1-L5) from what can often be a mild injury. That swelling in turn puts pressure on the sciatic nerve, one of the largest nerves of the body that travels from the lumbar section of the back down the legs. Depending on which vertebrae was injured, the pain might run down the side or front of leg and often through the buttocks. IF IT IS SCIATICA IT IS ALMOST ALWAYS ON ONLY ONE SIDE!!!! The bad part is there is very little to do to ease the pain. NSAIDs can help some, but generally time is the only healer. Mine took almost 6 months to heal. I started out crawling, finally went to a walker, then a cane and now I am back to completely normal. I walk 3-4 miles a day to keep my back strong. VERY IMPORTANT: Do not rush into surgery!!! If your doctor says you need surgery get at least one and even two opinions. Surgery is NOT the best method many times and can often cause lifetime troubles when just time would have healed the original injury. I have a friend who went the surgery way and has has many surgeries now. He is aware he should not have had them, as they caused more problems than the injury itself. Take care & good luck!!

Rest, Painkillers, are an approach used by some. Most studies show that maintaining a level of gentle activity results in less pain and sooner return to normal than rest. In a…ddition, ice or heat, depending on the patient's preferences, are equally effective. Gentle stretching exercises can also be helpful for back pain. Painkillers are effective only to the extent that they allow the patient to maintain gentle activity.
Ice is always what doctors recommend. Alternating between ice and heat every 20 minutes or so also helps with aches. Depending on how intense the pain is, taking something lik…e Aleve (Naproxen) is also very helpful for minor pain and discomfort. If pain is more chronic, you may want to consider wearing a knee brace while you exercise or put any kind of pressure on it.
