    I am suffering from sciatic nerve pain and having osteopathic help, but wonder if I should also take herbal supplements as well as exercising.

      Hello Anne Not necessarily. You may at times need a sleeping remedy such as our Dormeasan if the sciatica disturbs your sleep and it may even help the nerve pain but it depends what you want a remedy to help achieve.

      Thank you so much for your reply. I am much impressed by the product range and quality of your supplements. I wondered whether muscular function would benefit from any of these.

      Hi again Anne Muscle function is part chemical, part electrical and part good mechanics, so complex, but a good starting point would be our Balance powder or some magnesium citrate tablets.

      Hello Tanya Herniated discs are those that have burst and released their fluid. You may find that the lower back pain diminishes somewhat over the next few days and some sciatica replaces it. This is normal and should also ease. Keeping mobile as best you can but generally resting is the only immediate recommendation, as the core exercises that help prevent further occurrences are too much at the moment. When healed, any exercises for the core muscles will be great preventatives.
