Sciatica(4 posts)

May 22, 2003 1:06 PM
Hi everyone. It has been a long time since I asked or responded to something here (and almost as long since I was on the bike!)

I developed a bad case of sciatica playing tennis 6 weeks ago and although the pain is gone the upper left leg is still a little "tingly". The doc says to take it easy with sports but the inactivity is killing me.

My question is would a little bit on the road or on the trainer help or hurt? I think that this is one of those things that you just have to work through. FYI, my MRI showed absolutely nothing wrong with the lower back.


don't respond - I searched Sorry NM - FloorTigerfloortiger

Just curious as to where you found the information about sciatica and exercise. I just underwent back surgery for a herniated disc and I'm trying to find info about the subject.

JaeP - Do a search here and you will find some great info from earlier this month. There are a couple more threads that are very good too.
I went the internet route and the bookstore route and found good info in both. I am going to ride tomorrow, so I am anxious to see how it is affected.
