So I'm faced with eventually returning to work which involves sitting a lot. With siatica, that happens to be the position that triggers the leg numbness and pain the most. I saw this seat cushion on Pintrest and thought it looked promising. Has pretty good reviews too. xxxxxxxxxx Anyone tried sometng like this?
Also, any other products or gadgets that help, chime in.

  • i tried the magnilife pill, did not really see much difference. i also tried taking magnesium pills as reffered by some other members, did not notice much difference with that either. but it was all worth trying for me.
  • I also have a job where I have to sit all day behind a computer. I purchased a zero gravity recliner to keep in the corner of my office and when my back is really acting up I go sit in zero gravity chair for 15 minutes and ice my back. I even reconfigured my office so that I can work from my zero gravity chair with a phone right next to me and a laptop. I have tried several seat cushions and also purchased a special ergonomic desk chair, but none of those seem to work as much as simply resting and icing my back. I try to stand up as much as possible at work perhaps walking into a colleague's office to discuss something with them rather than emailing them. This seems to give my back little breaks throughout the day. Also try stretching throughout the day. Even small stretches can help. Best of luck. You are not alone. I hope you feel better soon.

  • Oh if I could only do that!!! Trouble is that I'm an auditor....I travel to the clients location and sit where they have a spare space. Sometimes in conference rooms in 40 60year old chairs, sometimes in a spare office where all the broken office chairs go to pasture, I've even done an audit in a garage on a little side table sitting on a metal folding chair. So for me....bringing my own seat makes sense. I can certainly get up and walk around to relax my back and leg tho.
