As long as you don't stuff it more FatGarfield and then end up back to square one!!! Take it easy and be patient darl!!! I know when I did my sciatica (at the gym, but that is an entirely full page rant!!!) my GP was horrified that the gym instructor told me to keep going and work through it!!! (she told me I was lazy, what the??) It took me 3 months to recover completely from it, but with the doctors advice and some suggested GENTLE back exercises I was fine!!
