  • Oh you poor thing ! I get sciatica too so can sympathise with how painful it is !
    How long have you been waiting for a physio appoitnment ? I only ask as I was referred for one last Tuesday as I have severe back pain (which isnt good with a desk job !) and still havent heard a peep out of them. I'm seriously considering just going to my local physio i used before and paying for it as I dont think I can cope much longer !!!

  • Hi, a few weeks ago I developed bad pain in my left hip, and could hardly walk - not great when looking after my 21 month son! I went to a physiotherapist who gave me crutches, which were v useful, but didn't do much else. I've seen an osteopath a few times since, and she was fantastic - I couldn't put any pressure on my hip before, and was really worried about how I'd be able to give birth, but now I can get around the house with no crutches most of the time, and the pain in nowhere near as bad - I'm also sleeping much better. She said my pelvis was tilted and some muscles were contracting down onto the sciatic nerve, which was causing the pain. My pelvis is now straight, and the muscles are a lot looser.xx
