Here are some tips to follow to help with treatment:

  1.  avoid sitting and flexed postures that increase your sciatica and leg pain
  2.  continue walking for 20-30 minutes outside (If this increases your pain then its not scaitica from a herniated disc)
  3.  stop working out with weights in forward bending positions and bent over positions
  4.  pay attention to postures the reproduces your sciatica
    1. positions that increase scaitica = bad posture and avoid these.  this presses on the disc causing increased pain
