Practical recommendations for easing the discomfort of the struggle:

1. A 'Smartie pink' Cuprofen tablet (400mg Ibuprofen) before bed – brings on a fuzzy warm feeling in which you're so relaxed you don't care :D

2. Alternatively, a large glass or three of gin or beverage of choice – also brings on a fuzzy warm feeling in which you're so relaxed you don't care :xmas-big-grin:

3. A good massage with some Ibuprofen gel – make sure hands are very thoroughly rinsed after, otherwise the unintended sensations could be a real passion killer :shock:

3. The joy to be had from plastering yourself with self adhesive heat patches :D

4. The therapeutic value of wearing muscle-warming thermal top and bottoms, especially on top of the strategically-placed heat patches :D

Now follows the realisation that one is probably more in the market for a subscription to Saga Magazine than say Dirt (Mountain Bike) magazine :(

A follow-on question if I may. Anybody had their sciatica develop/start after a bike mishap?

I'm with chickenball here, why pay loads of dosh when regular stretching will probably resolve your problem, like yoga innit........
