Having back pain and suffering from sciatica pain are conditions that make us miserable and are frankly unbearable.
Because of back pain or sciatica, you may not be able to play golf, work or even sit in the car for more than 30 minutes. It is almost impossible for anyone around you to understand how you are feeling. You can't remember the last time you had a good night's sleep.
You may be suffering from a condition called "sciatica". Sciatica is a compression of the sciatic nerve, usually associated with a herniated disc at L5-S1. Sciatica can also be caused by a bulging or pinched disc.
Nothing is worse than feeling good mentally, but physically, feeling held back in life because your back or sciatic nerve is causing you pain.
Fortunately, if you suffer from back pain or any of these problems, they can be relieved or eliminated with osteopathic treatment, neuro-spinal decompression and laser.
Osteopathy has been around for over a hundred years and has been used to help people with back pain and other conditions of all ages, from small babies to the elderly.
Even the biggest stars and athletes use manual medicine to relieve their back pain or aches. These professional athletes can afford to hire any type of doctor, but they choose to have an osteopath on their team.
"Manipulations, with or without exercise, provide symptom improvement and reduce the need for other medical care."
-British Medical Journal
"Spinal manipulations are more helpful than any of the following treatments: Traction, massage, biofeedback, acupuncture, steroid injection into the spine and back, corsets, and ultrasound."
- Stanley Bigos, MD, professor of orthopaedic surgery
