It may seem too easy, but engaging in your favorite hobby or activity regularly may reduce your experience of your chronic sciatic pain. This is done because your attention is diverted away from your severe pain, and the pleasurable activity at hand is positioned instead.

The last thing you should do when your suffering is at its worst is to give up on your hobbies. This is not only because it can reduce your understanding of your chronic pain by engaging in activities, but it also puts you at a higher risk of developing depression if you choose not to.


Along with engaging in hobbies, physical therapy will help with chronic sciatica. Trained physical therapists are available to assist with light exercise and can tailor each session to your needs and abilities. Remaining active is a great way to beat sciatica.

Dr. Ryan Whelton, a physical therapist, developed the Whelton Myofascial Referral Technique. It is a groundbreaking treatment method that is taught around the world. The treatment is a simple and effective treatment that:

  • Instantly relieves pain
  • Dramatically increases the range of motion
  • Decreases muscle spasms
  • Accelerates healing
