Sciatic Nerve Injection
You can treat it yourself by relaxing your Paraformis muscle. (wrong spelling). I have relieved a lot of Sciatica on people through trigger point release massage.
A person can use a tennis ball on the floor once you locate the muscle, although it is that muscle that is inflamed that is pinching the nerve.
Andy, check out MagicJack.com - we live in Thailand, and it allows us to call anywhere in the US for free using voip. Sound quality is good, and it works anywhere. It's a little dealie that you plug into your phone and then into your computer. It cost like $60 on Ebay, and we just renewed for 5 years for $99. We love it. Worth looking into, especially for you...love your blogs. Rebecca
