Just wondered if anyone has had Sciattica - how do you find it when running ?
Ive only just started running again after 1.5 months off with it - been a nightmare!

Yeap - had the problem now for a while. While it is getting better, it still gives me some pain. I think this will be a long slow recovery

I have had sciattica a few times, got it slightly now.
It never bothers me when running,only when I try getting up after sitting down.
If it is bad then I visit a chiropractic,it usually takes 3-4 visits to sort the problem out.
If you do not have it sorted,it can and will probably get worse.

They check your back alignment.
Usually they put you in an awkward position then drop their body on you.
It sounds awfull, but it doesn't hurt, unless treated the sciatica will return.
Often starts with lifting something wrong

Guess what I have got, yes sciattica again :'(
While it is not so bad at the moment,I have made an appointment for this saturday.
It is a new chiroptic clinic I will be visitng,so that means another examination,which is ok but just takes more time.

Hello

Check my original 'Trapped Nerve' thread.

The doctor told me it was not sciatica but a sprained/strained muscle. he did not suggest anything only stop running on pavements!

My pain is subsiding now. Getting up and sitting down is much easier. Hardly any pain. I have been stretching with the exercise on the following page:

BUTT CRAMPS 101

Mybe my imagination but I feel relief after I have done this.

Cheers

Gary

Thanks for the link.
It is the same stretch my chiro gave me along with a few other.
Such as the pelvic thrust and other which I don't know what they are called

When i first started running, i had Piriformis. When I read the recovery time, i was gutted. After 3 sessions at the physio, I was back on my feet within 2 weeks. It was damn painful I might add - one week I could hardly walk. It quite literally is a pain in the butt.

Can Sciattica attack other places though, such as back?
