    My wife has had awful sciatica pain since giving birth to our son four years ago. She's just changed over her fitness regime to include a lot of yoga. She's virtually had zero issues with sciatica since. Hers was debilitating to the point where she could not walk.

    good to hear, posture and core strength should go a long way as well as dropping weight

    She was always slim, I think it must have more to do with core strength.

    I’m in the same boat unfortunately, f**ked my back at work. Sciatic pain all the way to my toes nearly, left side 24/7.
    Doctor prescribed 600mg of Pregabalin per day & endone when needed. It’s f**king horrible

    I've had an slightly elongated disc in my back pretty much my whole life & I've always mitigated the pain by exercises to get my core strength going.

    One I do every single night is I lie down flat the planking position & elevate my arms about about a 10 degree angle dead straight & then do about 50-60 knee to chest bends. For me anyway it really helps alot.
