I have a tightness in the back of hamstring, which my Physio thinks is caused by the sciatic nerve.

It means i get a few km into a run and the back of my leg feels tight/swollen which the. Triggers an aching in my ischial tuberosity (which is a hangover from hamstring tendonosis).

Anyone got a good resource for rehabbing sciatica? I’ve not run for 7weeks and it’s beginning to drive me crazy!

There was a recent post with lots of replies. The quick answer I would give is look up ‘flossing’

I understand your pain.

Loads of great advice on this recent thread.

SImilar problems for me in the past - a lot to do with an old desk based job....

After some hands on time with physio I did a lot of stretching, some back mobilisation, a lot of core work.

I also changed jobs away from being sat at a desk all day long .... which has helped just as much!
