Low Back Pain & Sciatica.

Low Back Pain & Sciatica.

Patient: Man 36 years
Occupation: Joiner
Pain: 7/10

Complaint: Sudden onset of Low Back Pain and Sciatica while lifting at work 3 days earlier.

Treatment: No treatment was given at the first consultation, as the condition was too painful and inflamed – Treatment would have made the condition worse at this stage. The patient was instructed to rest at home for 3 days and take analgesics.

Treatment began 3 days later with Acupuncture and Osteopathic Spinal Manipulation.

The patient was 80% improved 2 days later, when he had a second treatment.

The patient received a third treatment 1 week later, and was almost pain free by this stage.

The patient was advised to return if he felt it necessary.

Prognosis: Good, but must take care to lift within his physical limit.
