Honestly, try stretching. A friend of mine in Puerto Rico had been on drugs for two months to alleviate sciatica, the pain was preventing him from running. The manager of the gym had him lay over a Roman and gradually pull himself downward so that he was bent greater than 90 degrees, and sustain the stretch for several minutes. It resulted in immediate alleviation of back pain. In-fact, after stretching for 15-20 minutes, he was able to work out.
