I got out my big ol' balance ball last night. YAY! I sat on it and my hips were o so happy... but then ds wanted it. He kept trying to pull it out from under me saying "ball" Ever time I leave the room he takes off with it and I got to hunt it down (lucky for me it is big and can't really be hidden)<br><br>
I might have to go buy another one of these balls so Ds can have his own and will leave mine alone. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

I guess this is a silly question, but how does the balance ball make your hips feel better?<br><br>
I have sciatica, really bad, I had it before I got pregnant and actually had to get a lumbar epidural because of the bulging disc. Anyway, i have sat on them before, but that was a long time ago and would love to know what kind of relief it could bring me now.

Get a large one and try it. I have a large one. I got it at dicks. It molds to my butt and takes pressure off my back and hips.... and pelvis. Until ds rolls it away.. just as he did just now.

This is exactly why I keep postponing getting my ball out. I just know DD (2yrs old) is going to be fighting me for it!<br><br>
It really is helpful for sciatica. I have used it in place of my computer chair sometimes.

Oooo. I'm totally getting one! (Luckily my only other children are cats & won't likely steal it.) My low back has been killing me. Are there special exercises/movements that help?

Not normally, but when it comes to helping my pain more naturally yep, yep, yep.<br><br>
My mom is a nurse, and all my life I grew up surrounded by medical books, items and so forth. It was only a few years ago, after living in the Bay area for awhile, that i even thought about natural treatments. The forum and magazine always give me something to think about and further investigate, i,love it.

I have really bad sciatica, so I may just have to get me one of these. Only problem is the closest sports is at the mall 45 minutes away, and I hate driving there. Maybe I'll make DH do it. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

Jen, do you have a big box store any closer? They usually have them. But I know that not everyone shops there.<br><br>
I wonder how close you are to my hometown? I grew up in the middle of a cornfield in IL <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> and understand the frustration of having to drive for anything decent.

I need to get one too. Now that I read your post I think I need to get two, there is no way my son will let me have one and not try to steal it from me every chance he gets!

I'm 40 minutes from a Target and 20 minutes from a Wal-Mart. I try to avoid Wal-Mart, but I'll go there as a last resort.<br><br>
I live 20 miles southeast of Decatur, near Lake Shelbyville.

Ok, not as close as I thought. I grew up just outside of Quincy - if you've even heard of it. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

Oh, yes, I definitely know Quincy. DD and I accompanied DH on a business trip there a couple years ago.
