    Check here a very effective sciatica natural treatment

    Normally, I would not answer a question like this as my expertise is generally in medication but I had severe sciatica while I was pregnant with my 3rd child (after having had twins) and I had sciatica so bad that I was finding it difficult to walk. I tried massage therapy and physical therapy and could not take medication

    I went to the chiropractor and the pain was instantly relieved. My hips and lower back were out of alignment because I had carried twins the year before. On occasion a Doctor of Osteopathy (DO) can also work but they usually only work on one joint at a time - the chiropractor will do your whole back which works faster. Anyone who does not believe in chiropractors will tell you they are quacks - don't listen.

    I don't necessarily believe that chiropractors can cure things like diabetes but they can definitely relieve some types of back pain especially if a pinched nerve is involved which is usually the cause of sciatica.

    I don't think you can really rate it, because every-body's pain tolerance is different. I think it also depends on how long you have been in labor for and where your labor is (ex. back labor is generally worse because they can't do anything for it with drugs.) However, they say that when a woman has a baby, their pain tolerance is higher than a man's. And men generally (think they) have a higher pain tolerance. Also, having gone through a 40 hour labor and birth, I would have to say probably an 8-9. But the worst was crowning and pushing the head out.

    not sure, ask your doctor for the name of a good neurosurgeon or orthepedist. also ask any of them for x-rays. a mri might be neede to diagnose the problem. my spondyllothesis showed up in regular x-rays along with my arthritis and herniated discs, but my foraminal stenosis did not. that showed up only in the mri. good luck, i sincerly hope they can find the problem. back pain can be the worse.
