Patients often ask to get into our clinic on the very same day, and this is often quite possible. We tend to be a busy clinic, but why do we have so many openings? This is because we are very efficient with our treatments. What does that mean? That means our patients get better faster.
A 40 year old woman came in with low back pain with pain that goes down her right leg. The patient often states that they have sciatica or sciatic pain. After a thorough exam we discovered that her sacrum and 4th lumbar vertebrae were misaligned and not functioning properly. We also discovered that some of her hip flexors and her later rotators of the hip were not functioning properly.
These are very common problems that happen in today’s society. This patient only had to 4 times before she had a full recovery. This is very typical for this condition; although, not all patients respond the same way.
Why is it that we were able to help this person so quickly? The reason that we were able to help this person so quickly comes from the fact that we address the 2 sources of the problem. She had a misalignment and functional movement problems with her sacrum and 4th lumbar vertebrae, but she also had fibrotic tissue (scarring in her muscles) in her fascia (outer neurologically influenced layer of the muscle) and muscle belly. Because we addressed both of these issues, she was able to get back to the fun things in her life!
There are several blog posts about what the different types of muscle work that we use found here and here. There is a wonderful video that shows what it means to use some of the instruments that we uses found here.
