A relative is suffering from crippling sciatica (left leg from bottom down) which she has now for a year. She tries to keep straight and not bend over, all day, to help prevent daily attacks.
The car and bathroom (especially standing up from the loo) are the worst triggers, leaving her unable to move for long periods. She can't travel because there is the constant worry of getting out and back in the car again.
It would be very helpful if anyone can please recommend tried and tested loo seat supports or general techniques or tips for sciatica.
I can't imagine the pain people have with this. Thanks so much.
Ps She does regular physio and is on medication (Gabapentin) through GP which we're not that sure how it's helping. She hasn't tried an osteopath or chiropractor.
