This 35-year-old male came to our office in a wheelchair. His sciatic pain was excruciating, from his right buttock through his right leg with numbing into the top of his foot. He had not slept in over a week.
Additionally, he had to take time off of work. A simple one-hour procedure removed the disc rupture as seen in the photograph (shown below at left). He was sent home the same day with complete relief of right leg pain. He will avoid heavy lifting and twisting for the next couple of months but otherwise is back to his lifestyle.
His sciatica is gone.
