i've quit running since 2000 because of low back pain/ sciataca.

doc said it cld be because of the low back spine squeezing against my nerves.

A SGH dr recommended me to either cycle or swim. I might want to return to running however... Anybody can share their experience here dealing with sciataca on the off chance that you've treated it and managed to return to running?

have a friend who recently got slipped disc.... most painful moments for him, and he's a tough guy with history of marathons, cycling, trekking, sky divings.

so after the slipped disc, he only stick to swimming and cycling, according to doctor's instructions.

So swimming is the best option for you. 

on top of swimming, you can also do some back-focused gym regime, that will built up your back muscles. And take some yoga or pilates course to keep your spine flexible. 

forget about running and all those high impact sports.

very hard to heal... almost impossible. but if you do the above, your spine can last a long time

I think TS is talking about his hip area, not slipped disc or spine.

There are a lot of factors affecting TS's issue. It could be his weight, his posture or maybe his knee like he mentioned. I know someone who is flat footed also has problems in one side of his hip joint. IMO is his posture which is affected, he's a tall and heavy, if the posture is not correct his weight is not distributed correctly on his joints thus the pain. Our core muscles (abs & back) support our upper body and helps our legs balance the whole body. Losing weight helps plus strengthening of the core muscle group will lessen the pain.

What the specialist suggest is correct since jogging is out of the question to help loose weight. I suggest TS loose some weight if you are overweight and look to someone to make sure your overall posture is alright and see whether it helps. As for your knee there's nothing much can be done unless you do surgery to insert a rubber cushion as a replacement ligament.

I am not heavy at all. Main problem is my bow leg. I used to train in X-country during my NS day. runs 3x a week with lousy shoe.

I have lower back pain problem on and off ever since I injured my back muscles many years back. I realized sleeping on a firm mattress (not necessary need to be expensive) is almost a must. If you already sleeping on a firm mattress, please check if there is any sagging because sometimes you might not notice it.

Specialist will not cure your daily activities that lead to the damage n pain.

Specialist will suggest operation to cure it.

Can tahan 10years....wow.....great endurance.

Get the AIBI back stretcher......to reduce the spine pressure.....it will allow the disc to expand and get back to elasticity. Not much solution out there, but to self heal using mental power to spur the body to heal by itself.

The flatten disc protruded out and pinch the nerves inside the spinal cord, leading to sciatica and nerve pain.

i used to be running addict like u TS...now in my 50s, knee pain and back pain. guess joints do get worn out. have since switched to cycling and swimming, exactly as ur doc recommended, haha. it has helped my pain reduce. most impt thing for back pain is to keep active, and dun give up exercise. if u do, u will start noticing the symptoms more
