The first thing is to report it to your supervisor and the Human Resources Dept. This is not legal advice, but it may be covered under workman's comp. Next is stay away from the heating pad. It appears that the muscles in your back are inflamed and heat will make it worse. The first 48 to 72 hours use nothing but ice packs 3-4x a day for 15-20 minutes. Do not put the ice directly on the skin, use a towel. Therapeutic ice packs can cause burns if not used properly. Hot baths with Epsom salts is okay to relieve soreness. After the first 2-3 days, use a contrast therapy of ice 15 min., heat 15 min., ice 15 min. 3x a day. Also, during the entire time, avoid sitting for extended periods. Walk and do light stretches, but not to the point of sharp pain. If this does not seem to show signs of improvement after the first 2 days, see your chiropractor.

Chiropractic care has proven to be very effective with sciatica. It is commonly caused by two conditions that sometimes occur at the same time but not often, lumbopelvic misalignment and/or a disc problem. The sciatic nerve is formed by 5 spinal nerves, 2 from the lumbar spine and 3 from the sacrum (tailbone). Chiropractic treatment can alleviate the pain and keep it under control. Once the condition is under control it is possible it can flare up on occasions but usually one or two follow up treatments will take care of it.

Can a chiropractor help me with my sciatica?

Chiropractic is very effective in treating sciatica which is a very common side affect of pregnancy. During pregnancy the alignment of the lumbar spine and pelvic area are altered READ MORE
Chiropractic is very effective in treating sciatica which is a very common side affect of pregnancy. During pregnancy the alignment of the lumbar spine and pelvic area are altered due to increased forward weight bearing. Because of this certain joints, specifically the sacroiliacs, become subluxated (fixated) and lose normal mobility. This in turn increases tension of the piriformis muscle under which the sciatic nerve courses down into the leg. Chiropractic manipulation to the sacroiliac joints to increase their mobility releases this tension therefore relieving the sciatica. You must be patient. Depending on the longevity of your condition it may take several treatments to obtain substantial relief.

How can I prevent my back from getting strained at work?

Three things. One is a lift brace which is specifically made for use on the job. You can find them online, Lowes or Home Depot. If not used correctly it will have an adverse affect READ MORE
Three things. One is a lift brace which is specifically made for use on the job. You can find them online, Lowes or Home Depot. If not used correctly it will have an adverse affect and make your back weaker in the long run. It has suspenders and 2 closures. The first is like a cumber bun on a tux. Only secure it like a belt, not tight. The second involves 2 elastic bands, one on each side. When you get ready to lift pull those 2 tight and secure them in the front. Once you finish lifting loosen them. If you do not follow this procedure to use it correctly your back muscles will become weaker and dependent on the brace. Second, use your legs and not your back. If you have ever watched professional weight lifters they square their legs up under them before they lift. Third, do not bend your back when setting the weight down, use your legs and squat. This will be difficult at first until your legs become stronger. Also, because you have not been using your legs there will be some cramping for a couple of weeks, especially at night. Get some pediolyte popsicles and eat one twice a day to replace electrolytes in your body. Dill pickles, bananas and oranges are also helpful for a snack during your break at work.

Also, with the initial week or two of treatment, some conditions seem to become a little worse before they get better, which is normal. Most pain comes from nerve irritation, which reduces function.
