Low back pain & sciatica
« on: May 16, 2007, 10:30:00 AM »

Hi Steve & all,

I am in a lot of pain at the moment. :'( I am partially disabled with Rheumatoid Arthritis for over 36 years, and have had a bone scan which showed Osteo Arthritis in L4 & L5 also have  sciatica.
I would like to get your DVD's, but because of my condition, not sure if I would be able to do whatever I need to.
I have been having physio, but not helping that much.
Any sugestions please. :)

The rheumatoid arthritis will be your biggest hurdle because my program does require your muscles responding to the work you do. Do you work very hard on your diet? Are you on any chinese herbs or similar? This sort  of approach would help I'm sure but you would obviously have muscle imbalance problems to deal with also which cause the sciatica.
Maybe a good acupuncturist would be better than physio.

Thanks Steve,
 I did mention trying accupuncture to my physio. but as I have lung cancer also which is in remission at the moment, she was'nt sure if it might stimulate it! She has suggested hydro therapy, which did help when I had it a few years ago, but only temporary.

Would I be able to have chinese herbs with all my medication?

Hi Hazetone, I think your Physio is way off the mark. Acupuncture works to open up the flow of chi energy throughout te body and that unblocking wouldhave a healng effect on the lung cancer before it would stimulate it.

The hydrotherapy should help but you are just strengthening the muscles when doing that, not taking out the imbalances which is the normal way to remove pain effectively so it lasts.

Your goal should be for the herbs to replace the medicines or make it so they are not needed anymore. speak to the herbalist about it.

Good luck,
Steve
