I have suffered with bad sciatica in the past, regular shiatsu massage really helps. Now I just have piriformus pain (like sciatica but pain stays up near the hip more)
About 6 weeks ago I discovered a local trigger point pilates class. WOW what a difference, who knew that sitting on a pair of squishy prickly balls could be so good. It’s a cross between yoga and pilates, using foam rollers and squishy balls. I feel so much straighter and my core strength and flexibility are really improving.
