The first step is always proper diagnosis. A lot of times a pinched nerve in the low back can look a lot like sciatica. And those are two very different conditions. The amount of things that sciatica prevents you from doing is pretty significant, rather than avoidance, especially being that you are so young, I would not recommend changing your behavior to prevent the condition from being worse. I would instead, recommend a proactive approach to look at the underlying reasons why you have sciatica, if it is in fact truly sciatica.

One of the best stretches he can do for the preservation of his low back, is called the Cobra pose, from yoga.

It's very similar to a push-up, but his pelvis stays on the floor, so that his lower back is arched.

one surprising thing that helps relieve lower back pain, is it stretching all the muscles in the legs, especially the ones on the inner thighs, the abductors and adductors. Many times chronic low back pain comes from having tight leg muscles. stretching those out helps relieve the tension on the pelvis that the low back muscles have to compensate for.

Always remember, you should talk to your chiropractor before starting your son and any stretching or exercise routine. Also, stretching is good, and necessary. But it does not replace what chioropractic does for the spine.
