    Is it available in stores or online?
    lifesajourney replied to phillp07's response:
    That sounds like it might help me. I have a lot of leg pain from SI and sciatic nerves. Thanks for sharing
    tayles59 replied to lifesajourney's response:
    backjoy is a wonderful product but it is only treating a symptom and not the root cause which many times is an anteriorly tipped pelvis. ATP is caused by an under utilized hamstring and an over utilized quad. Recruiting the hamstring to do the work it was intended to do will align the pelvis and provide a long term solution to SI, low back and knee pain.
    Look up a product by the name of Protonics and check them out, the science is proven with clinical studies and it is easy to do

    I was just going to ask what you could do at home to help with sciatica pain.
    I did google and saw a few items for body contour.

    Mine is out of control right now, it's in my right hip and leg.... and my hand massaging it does not help. Nor are my meds being much relief right now either.

    I have squirmed, tried to walk it off, tried to get comfy in bed.....nothing helping right now. I may try one of those seat cushions, just to see if I can get any relief while sitting...

    ~any home remedies that may ease the pain ??

    thanks ~lyn

    hi and welcome to the support group-

    heat and ice packs my help - taking a hot bath - when sleeping on your side sleep with pillows between your knees and kinda curl up in fetal position - if on your back sleep with pillows under your knees -

    not sure what meds you are on - but Lyrica or Neurontin will help with some of the pains - pain pills do nothing for the pains -
    going to physical therapy under the advise of either your spine specialist or pain management physician, will help and they will be able to give you home exercises to do - remember we are all different so that may help one may not help another -

    hope this helps - keep us posted - take care - Joy
