Today, we’re going to talk about what can make
your sciatica pain worse? There are quite a few things that can make them worse.
So as always, I’m going to give you a bit of a backstory here. I had this
patient a year, year and a half back. We can call her Jenny. She’s 45 years old.
She’s female and she’s had sciatica for the past six months. It’s just driving
her crazy. Especially in the morning, she’d find it very, very irritating in
the morning when she’s trying to rise out of bed. Especially getting dressed is
just a big, big drag for her, before like the two to three hours in the
beginning in the morning are the worse for her.
She’s just really, really irritated about the
whole thing. She’s trying to take a few cold showers because she had that tip given
to her. That’s helping some but still not quite a bit.
So internally, she’s very depressed. She feels
anxiety and she’s telling me that that pain was just taking the pleasure out of
everything. She didn’t feel pleasure or joy in anything. Jenny loves to swim
and she was on the team when she was up in high school, and she ...
Today, we’re going to talk about is heat or
cold better for sciatica pain? To give you a bit of a backstory here, I’m going
to tell you this story about Tanya. Of course, that’s a made-up name, but Tanya
is a real person. She’s 20 years old. She’s female and she’s eight months
pregnant. She has a lot of sciatica pain down her left leg.
She’s not taking any pain medication. She doesn’t
want to take an MRI. She doesn’t want to have any treatment whatsoever, because
she’s really afraid that anything that she does is going to affect her baby in
She has had two miscarriages before so she’s
very, very conscious about that. She doesn’t want to do anything that could
slightly have any chance to affect the baby. So that’s what we have to work
with. So internally, of course, as a mother eight months pregnant, she’s
feeling really stressed, just even if you don’t have sciatica or back pain, if
you have a kid.
She’s gained 20 kilos. She has aches and pains
all over her body, and she can barely walk. She’s actually using crutches at
the moment walki ...
Today, we’re going to talk about does sciatica
get worse before it gets better? Before this, I have to tell you a bit of a
story here about my technical skills, okay, that are just awful.
As you could see, I’m dragging my feet today.
I’ve slept in a bit. I’ve been up all night, trying to figure some technical
stuff out, and I was wondering if you also are a technical idiot like I am.
Like you guys know, I’m on a mission to help one
million back pain sufferers to reduce or heal their back pain. In order for me
to do that, I need to get my message out. So I wrote this book. I have some
online courses on back pain and it’s all online, right?
So I needed to hire some tech nerds, and
they’re always laughing at me, because I had such stupid questions. At least
that’s what they’re telling me. So the big joke in the company right now is,
let’s build it in a way that Robin can actually use it. If Robin can use it
anyone can use it. So I love my tech nerds you know. They keep this going.
I got the back-pain knowledge but I wouldn’t
be able to get them out. So guys out there, wher ...
Today, we’re going to talk about why does sciatica pain get worse at night? But before that, I want to take some time and just talk about date night, okay? Just bear with me guys. I’m going to stick to the topic, but this is important.
Like I told you guys, I’ve been married for 15 years. We’ve been together for 20. We have two beautiful kids, and we love our kids you know, but sometimes as a parent, the parents need to be alone. For the first few years, until they were like eight, nine, ten, we didn’t really do that, me and my wife. The kids were more or less always with us, but now when they’re older, we can actually have time for this date night.
So it doesn’t need to be fancy or anything, but take some time. If you’ve been in any relationship, especially if you’ve been in a long relationship, go out with your partner and do some stuff where there’s just the two of you, that you need to spend time.
It’s easy between work and kids and relatives and friends and all of that, that that gets lost in the mixture. So this has made a big, big — it̵ ...
Today, we’re going to talk about or answer the
question, is walking good when you have sciatica pain? But before that, I need
to address something. You see, this shirt and guys, if you are just listening
to the podcast, we also have a video podcast, but you can go back and look at
Anyway, I have this shirt on okay, and I’m
getting all kinds of questions from people all around the world asking me “Why are
you just wearing the same shirt?
Well, I’m not mixing it up a bit. As I told
you guys that I’m on vacation and when I go on vacation, I pack it very light.
I have like two shirts, two pairs of underwear, two pairs of socks, one pair of
pants, one pair of shoes, and I just wear that and I’ll wash it. So it’s clean
but I can’t be switching around my wardrobe too much when I’m traveling.
And that’s also good back pain tip you know. If
you are traveling, you should really try to pack light. It’s just less stuff to
walk around with. Anyway, back to today’s question and a lot of questions come
in from people that have sciatica, and they’re asking me you know, why is i ...
Today, we are going to talk about what is the
best painkiller for sciatica? But before I start, I need to tell you a little
story. Like I told you guys, yesterday, I’m on vacation and it’s going great,
but I wonder if some of you guys back home there might have the same problems
with your kids?
They’re into their phones, their iPads, their
TV, and they’re consuming this social media so much, constantly. There’s a big
discussion every day you know, how much time they should be able to spend on their
phones, their iPads, and blah blah, blah.
Like I told you guys, I’m on this quest right
to help 1 million back pain sufferers and doing this, I’m listening to all
kinds of different podcasts, trying to get some ideas how to market my message
better to the world.
I listened to a podcast the other day here and
someone had quite an interesting spin on this with social media. What they told
me on the podcast was that they were not like consumers of social media. They were
actually producers of social media content.
And that like really stuck with me and I had
this discussion with my son. His name is James. Jame ...
Today, we are going to talk about how do I
stop my sciatica from coming back? But before that, I want you to ask you guys
if you have a similar problem like I have. I’m on vacation right now. I have my
beautiful wife here, Linda, and my two kids and still you know, there’s always this
small work-related stuff that comes up and it’s hard to just focus and leave
all of that.
So I actually did something yesterday. We have
this dollar store here in the town I live. So I went in and I got this mug. Do you
see that? Number one dad? Of course, I’m not the number one dad of all times,
but I keep this on my desk to just keep me focused you know, that I need to
spend time on the stuff that’s really important to me, my family, and not just
do the work-related stuff. So that’s a little tip for you, whatever works for
Okay, back to today’s story. Today, I’m going
to talk about Frank. Frank is this 30-year-old carpenter. He has had back pain
and sciatica for almost three years off and on you know, depending on what he
Some days, it was really bad. He had this
knife feeling in his buttock, radiati ...
Whooyah! This is Robin from the Back Pain
Secret Podcast and today, we are going to talk about what happens if sciatica
is left untreated?
Before I start, I have to tell a funny story. So
like I told you guys, on the podcast yesterday, I drove off to my mom. I’m
spending two or three days here before my family comes, Linda and my two kids.
So yesterday, I did the podcast. I just
flicked the camera on, and there was an old pair of underwear hanging up in the
back. So my wife, when I posted this online, she got on my case. She gave me a
call and told me, “Robin, you’ve got to shape up, man. You can’t be posting
stuff when you have your underwear in the background.”
So today, I got some new scenery, okay? I got
the big wall here, with a big bookshelf. So I hope that’s there for you honey. I
promise. No more underwear.
And if you’re just listening to the podcast,
I’m also doing the video podcast, so if you want to go back and see that, it’s
like Episode 46, or something like that.
Anyway, today, what happens if sciatica is
left untreated? To give you a bit of a backstory here, Stan was ...
Today we are going to talk about how long does
it take for a sciatica nerve to heal?
It’s been a while since I did the podcast,
like two or three weeks, and I’m sorry about that. It’s just because I’ve been
really, really busy.
I’m on a mission as you guys know. I’m trying
to help 1 million back pain sufferers to reduce or heal their back pain and
doing this, the first thing was that I wrote this book, Back Pain Secrets.
I got the website up and I started to sell a
few copies, but the thing also was that I was getting requests all around the
world from people wanting my advice on their back.
The thing with me, I’ve been in business for
quite a while now, many, many years. In the beginning, when I started to do the
business, I wanted everything to be perfect. You know, everything needed to be
picture-perfect before I launched anything.
Now, I’ve been around for a while. So first
things, I just launched stuff. I get stuff up and then I see the reaction and
then I make corrections to do that. So with this project, I didn’t really have
any systems in order, okay? So I was just fl ...
Hey guys, this is Robin Wakeham from the Back Pain Secrets podcast. Today we are going to talk about how you can reduce your back pain by paying attention to other people.
Guys, that’s what today’s episode about. And this is a topic that might seem a bit strange, but it really works. So, listen carefully, listen to the whole episode. And when you’re in pain, specifically in back pain, it’s very easy. We’re obviously, when you’re in back pain, you want the pain, reduce your back pain can, you don’t want to make it worse. And when you don’t want to make it worse, it’s easy to have this personalized to that, but that you get a bit panicky. You’re very panicky and everything is just about you. It’s very like egotism. It’s just you, and you don’t want to make the pain worse.
What happens when you have that? That, attitude, this panicky attitude and his egotism, it actually can increase your back pain guys. It can increase your back pain. So how do you break that? Well there’s many ways. Obviously there’s not just one way, but one way that’s cheap doesn’t cost ...
