I need some extra information. I take it that if you bend straight forward, carefully, with both legs straight, that the one leg is much tighter than the other. Right? Or is it only in the back.
Please take this little Slump Test for Sciatica
and let me know what you feel. Be specific.
Was coughing, sneezing, laughing, bearing down on the loo painful at any stage?
Meantime, start these Lower back exercises ...
gently, listen to your back, it will tell you, guide you as which are best for you.
What I'm trying to gauge is whether there has in fact been an injury to the disc and at what level. Did the pain go to the foot? Which side?
In the beginning were you standing in an odd posture, leaning to the side? Towards or away from the pain?
Can you raise the big toe, stand on your toes without difficulty on that leg?
Let me know. Go from Leg stiffness and pain to Chiropractic Tips …
I hope this has contributed.
