I have the pain really bad when riding. I fractured a vertabrae in my back and did not know it which herniated the two disc and crushed a nerve. Now with physical therapy and regular exercise I have been able to make my back significantly better.

It's a disc problem. The L5-S1 nerve root causes the sciatica. Be glad it's not the L4-L5 disc that's bulging. That one can effect your bowels.

I've had two back surgeries in the past 8 years from being stupid in college and I consider them miracle surgeries.

Most recent studies however say that having surgery has no long term benefits over more conservative treatments so if you can live with the pain it will probably be gone in a year or two.

My docs had warned me that my back would never be the same after surgery but isn't that the whole point? So far so good, the arthritis in my lower back that they promised by my 30th b-day still hasn't arrived.

good to hear another person proving science wrong. keep it up! i am told i will have arthritis in my knee from a previous surgery...let's see if i can hold the dogs off for a while as well.
