lower back pain/siatica pain therapy

I have had chronic pain since July 2013. After many months of seeing different doctors, injuection, accupuncture, physical therapy and a short Watsu therapy 4 session, I have found a good combinations for me. Besides the non narcotic meds I am taking that my PM doc prescribed ( gabapentin and Noratriiplylin) I am swimming three days a week. Not full on swimming but light. I use a noodle. I start with just bringing my legs up to my stomach, a light stretch. slow bicyle moves, and walking in the water. It has helped a lot!!! All my doctors say water therapy is quite helpful.
