Pain on standing and sitting

The most common symptom from sciatica is pain. … Sciatica can also cause knee pain, hip pain, and foot pain. The pain is usually worse with both prolonged sittingand standing. Frequently, the pain is made worse by standing from a low sittingposition, such as standing up after sitting on a toilet seat.

Slumping or slouching on its own may not cause low back pain, but after the back has been strained or injured, bad posture can make pain worse. “Good posture” generally means your ears, shoulders, and hips are in a straight line. If this posture causes pain, you may have another condition such as a problem with a disc or bones in your back. Gentle Manipulation can be very beneficial in the recovery of this painful condition.
