Hi Thelma, Left sciatic pain normally means right short leg which said another way means your muscles are unbalanced. Things that will help you are water exercises when you can but in the meantime, you need to unlock your leg muscles and hips/ pelvis area to try and take the short leg away. Using my double ball technique on your erector spinae muscles will also help. which is a free video demonstration.

You can loosen the leg muscles with deep tissue massage or using my SLM Yoga and ball compression technqiues as shown in my self treatment program. If you get massage make sure it is deep work and you stick with it for a while.

It also depends on the responsivness of your muscles and that relates to diet, exercise habits and general lifestyle in the past.

A lot of this is covered in my free book or more thoroughly in the Self Treatment Program

All the best
