    I am suffering from serious sciatica. My brother, who is (I hate to say) a better athlete than I am keeps telling me to go to http://www.mindandbodyworkout.com and use the exercises they offer. But this means purchasing a DVD and actually committing to the exercises given – which entail serious breathing techniques, to name just one obstacle…. Have you heard of this? Is it a good idea for someone who is hurt??

    Sorry to say I donot have much idea about the websight but as per my knowledge goes, if the pain is minor and due to sudden hurt, only rest is the best solution. If it lasts for more than two weeks, after taking total rest,you should consult a doctor first before doing any type of exercise.

    I’m afraid that the ONLY solution for sciatica is rest. Under no circumstances should you do any exercise for 3 months. Bear in mind that sciatica is not dangerous. No one has ever become crippled from sciatica or died from it. It’s one of those conditions that are extremely annoying – for example, when you have sciatica, it’s hard to stand up without fidgeting your legs about constantly, and it’s hard to straighten and lift ONE of your legs (not both) when lying down. But don’t worry. It goes away eventually and, thereafter, it rarely comes back. However, DON’T do any exercises to get rid of it. All you will probanly do is make it worse.
