Exercise to relieve stiffness and sciatica after surgery

Started by makeitquit on 12/17/2012 9:34pm

I had a laminotomy 3 1/2 months ago but am now experiencing sciatica and lower back pain. My surgeon ordered an MRI and the results of the surgery are good. There has been no rerupture but I have pain. I am looking for simple and safe exercises that will help ease the sciatica and the lower back pain. I think inactivity is making me worse! I googled for exercises to be used after back surgery and am having trouble finding any that indicate safety for post ruptured disc patients experiencing sciatica. The surgeon said I could begin some exercise but doesn't indicate anything more than walking. I want to stretch, etc. Help!
