Tonight, I saw the Max Power episode of The Simpsons. I guess I never paid attention to the opening credits the other times I had seen it, as this was the first time I noticed that Bart writes "No one wants to hear about my sciatica" on the blackboard.
I hope that isn't true. A bit part of my repertoire is whining about my pain.
I have found it helpful to do the stretching exercises my physical therapist recommends. Do some core strengthening exercises, such as the ones highlighted at The Mayo Clinic. By keeping your core strong, your back won't put itself in a position to cause that sciatica pain you are having.
