Hi, my father has sciatica and his leg hurts badly. I heard that there are several ways of relieving the pain. What is the best from your personal experience?

I have sciatica so I know how your father feels. I have symptoms only on one side of my body. The pain is extending upwards to the hip, and I have troubles moving and controlling the leg. My doctor told me that sciatica is casued by irritation of the sciatic nerve. My pain is usually relieved when I rest for couple of days, but it is not the best solution because it lasts too short. I use cold paks for relieving the ciatic pain. I take a package of frozen peas, put it in a towel, and apply it to the painful area for 20 minutes. I do that four times a day, and it really helps. Beside that, I am using aspirin and sometimes ibuprofen. They both relieve the pain, and I recommend them to your father.

A had a sciatica crisis in december, but now I feel much better. What excercises do you recommend to do in order to prevent the reappearance of the pain caused by sciatica? I usualy do pushups and abdominal exercises but i'm not quite sure whether I do the right thing.
