I read on the site some where about a resident doctor. How do i ask him/her for some advice?
I have damaged my sciatic nerve and was giving some excersies by a physio. The pain was going but it has started to get worse again. I was wondering if there was anything i should be doing to strengthen my back which would help or what else can i be doing?
At the moment i am doing:
Neck exercises - forward and back then side to side
Forward and backward circles with arms
Back stretches on the mat - while flat on back bring knee to chest with both hands and curl up. Repeat with other leg and then both legs. Then bring both legs to chest and curls up then rock gently.
Lie on back with knees bent and arms out to either side. Rotate knees to the left and hold then to the right and hold.
While sitting on the floor leave one leg straight and bend the other leg over the out stretched leg. Place elbow on bent knee and twist to the side. Repeat for both legs.
Then some hamstring stretches.
Anymore advice would be wonderful as i am unable to go to the gym properly or take part in pre season for my football team as i am in real pain for days after.
