Exercise Ball/ sciatic nerve

For thos of you that have tried using one, did it help at all? And when did you start using one? Has it helped anyone with sciatic nerve pain? Tmi but right to the left of my tailbone on my left butt cheek is killingg me daily!! My doc said to try a chiro for it but my insurance doesn't cover it =/ I go back to work in a week and a half and do a lot of bending :(

I loved my exercise ball with my first pregnancy! It helped my back and hip pain and helped me dilate to 4cm by 38 weeks. I sat on it all the time (eat dinner, watch tv, reading a book, work on my scrapbook, etc.). I started using it around 30 weeks. I am now 34+2 with baby #2 and still use it but not as much bc my 20month old son thinks he has to sit on my lap when I try to sit on it :( lol

Awesome! It's much cheaper than weekly chiro appts. I definitely am going to have to get one then! Thank you :)
