Hi

Welcome to HealthcareMagic.

Sciatica can be treated with surgery in some people.Pain even after surgery should be handled by alternate methods.I advise you to opt for chronic analgesics , along with yoga.Yoga and physiotherapy has shown good results in many people.I suggest you to visit a Professional Yoga Personnel near your area and learn the specific aasana for your case.Try reducing weight so that you will have some relief from symptoms.

Good luck.

Hello Doctor I am a 67 yr old wht female I have worked with animals most of my life, from domestic to exotic, cheetahs, chimps, etc. Twenty yrs ago I developed a severe back problem after an extreme case of sciatica Fat forward to now, I have no medical doctor, other than chiropractor and occasional acupuncture Current Health Issues In the Extreme: Possible tape worm just collected after fast, pomegranates and oxygen just yesterday. Up to that point, blood and feces come back neggative for parasites. Other mainstream difficulties 1. Have not been able to walk upright for over 20 yrs now Back straightens up but cannot remain erect as muscle will not hold torso upp, so after about 15 steps i FALL FORWARD AND CANNOT HOLD MYSELF UPRIGHT TO WALK. 2. Moregellions in my hair, face all over of recent QUESTION; Is it possible the parasites weakened my back and stomach muscles and caused the back issue ? How to get rid of these damn Morgellons? Is there a cure as I am going nuts bathing three times a day and lost over half of my hair. Have recent cloudy mental and difficulty breathing Live in So Cal No insurance other than Medicare as I lost my job due to Morgellons.
