Slowly Overcoming Sciatica - IAmAliveChallenge DTubeSnap
Description: What's up guys! How you doin' Angels? Another #DTubeSnap and #IAmAliveChallenge video today discussing my battle with sciatica and how I am starting to feel better but must continue to slow myself down. I have been sticking to my plan of treatment, taking cannabis and over the counter medications, doing regular stretching. Recently noticing I have begun to get feeling back in my toes I am starting to walk normally, at least for the first few minutes of the daily adventures.
As I am doing much better now I assume that the fear of damage is much less, the nerve is no longer impinged starting to heal. At one point I couldn't even sit through writing my morning #freewrite ... started that back up also ... as I find myself able to do more I am also realizing how my doing more can quickly end up with me hurt again. In this video I give an example of how a simple walk with Jerry quickly brings back the limp which is a sign of the muscles not responding due to impingement. As long as I continue to localize the pain to where the injury is believed to be then I am taking steps in the right direction.
Going into the future my plan is to slowly add back the exercises which will help the muscles affected by impingement such as squats. All in all it looks good for the Jan 12th return to work as long as I keep up with my conditions maintenance!
That's It, @D00k13 Out!!!
