NTJ --
Sciatica refers to back pain caused by a problem with the sciatic nerve. This is a large nerve that runs from the lower back down the back of each leg. When something injures or puts pressure on the sciatic nerve, it can cause pain in the lower back that spreads to the hip, buttocks, and leg.
I had this problem about 2 years ago. Believe it or not, the firm balls people use to massage that area do work. You can sit on the ball and move it around the area. Some people hold the ball up against the wall and push the ball into the area of concern.

I found a journal article posted on a government (NIH) website! I had not seen this before.
The Theory and Technique of Yamuna Body Rolling
This paper introduces the principles of YBR. My personal opinion is that YBR is a very effective approach in many clinical settings because it evaluates and treats conditions simultaneously and makes clients more independent. I hope that YBR will be used as a self-conditioning method for not only healthy people but also patients who require physical therapy in clinical fields.

Yamuna is kinda expensive but they have the moves down and have garnered a lot of attention. There are plenty of other sources and methods so not pushing Yamuna! My daughter, Heather, bought some sort of similar devices (tubes and balls) while in Germany to help her.
