3 Doctors Said Surgery Was Her Only Option for Her Sciatica, But Today, She Feels Like A New Woman!
By Sciatica Physical Therapist, Joel Digris
Ever feel as if you are trapped by pills or the recurring feeling that surgery is the only thing that will help your stabbing sciatic pain go away after all this time?
Because I see people just like you everyday, I can you tell there’s probably no more disruptive form of back pain. 😨
Sometimes you can’t sit. Sometimes you can’t stand. Sometimes you can’t walk or drive. Or even lie in bed.
The pain is simply all you can think about.
A little while ago, someone called us to help because her life was miserable.
She was afraid and tried almost everything and nothing worked...
Her Story Actually Led To Me Trying To Find More People Like Her So That We Could Help Them...
And That's Why You Are Here.
The biggest problem that I see is this:
🤔 Sciatica is a symptom...it is not a cause of pain...it is a symptom of the cause of the pain....let me be clear.
Sciatica is not a diagnosis!
If you are being seen by a doctor and they tell you that you have diagnosis, they are only revealing a small part of the puzzle.
They are holding information back or don't really know what else to tell you...not intentionally, it's just the way it is sometimes.
🤔 Think of it this way...part of the worry is NOT KNOWING WHAT'S WRONG!
The doctor tells you that you have "sciatica" and you actually feel better emotionally with less worry simply because they "diagnosed" you and at least you don't have to worry about all the other stuff you were thinking about that might be causing your stabbing pain.
👨⚕️ So, what's next? Your doctor prescribes pills for the "inflammation" and you put all the faith in the world that you now have your answers...only to realize months later that your answers were to the wrong questions.
The Reality is The Healthcare System Puts You on The Same Path as ALL Other "Sciatica" Sufferers Because That's The Way It's Always Been.
Months later at your follow up, not much has changed.
Your doctor actually may even start thinking that you simply just don't want to get better.
Certainly, if not sooner, an MRI and a Surgical Consultation is coming down the pike...we see this all the time!
Doctor > Pills > MRI > Surgical Consult > More Pills and Time > Surgery Consult #2
Your "Sciatica" diagnosis was an easy way to send you home with something so that your initial worries would be calmed, but, nothing worked! Why?
Nobody Actually Found The "Root Cause" of Your "Sciatica" Pain. What is The REAL Diagnosis?
🤔 Here is a very quick study on Sciatica 101...
Sciatica is the term that describes symptoms of pain that begins in the lower back and extends down through your butt, thigh, and sometimes as far as your foot.
Mostly likely, that tingling or painful sensation going down your leg is caused by a problem higher up in your spine… such as:
A disc irritating, compressing or choking a nearby nerve...
A joint at the back of a vertebra which is twisted a bit...
A strained back muscle that doesn't want you to move and is painfully squeezing a nearby nerve…
You can appreciate how much work it can be to accurately diagnose the root problem. Even with technology like MRIs.
Which is why most doctors feel they’re doing the best they can with the resources available.
That’s why I prefer to take a more self-directed, holistic approach to fixing sciatica.
Trust me, primary care physicians are way overworked and way underpaid..we get it...we even put together a thank you campaign for them a few years ago.
But, that doesn't make YOU feel any better unfortunately.
