Our expert says:
I recommend you consult your local osteopath. This will help with your recovery of your spine and nerve pain. For more information on osteopathy visit www.osteogoodhealth.com
You need to consider your posture at all times whether sedentary and especially when active. Your goal should be to reduce restrictions in the spine and associated structures as well as improving muscular support.
Swimming is OK if you are a competant swimmer and your technique is good. If you thrash around in the pool this is a bad idea. If this is the case try walking laps in the pool.
If you are able to sit pain free I suggest static bike. Sit upright and do not slump. Cycle 5minutes daily and increase duration by 5 minutes each month. This has a very positive effect on your pelvis and spine without torsional movements or impact.
Avoid the cross trainer at all costs.
Avoid sitting in the sofa.
