Disturbing moment of the day:
[the scene - me, on my computer, listening to Pet Shop Boys' "It's a Sin". My father is also in the room, folding the laundry.]
My Dad: Who's that?
Me: [reluctantly] The Pet Shop Boys.
Dad: Turn it up!
[I sit there awkwardly for the remaining 3 minutes of the song as my father hums and whistles along.]
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.
