Case study SCIATICA pain
Permalink   
 


A male patient, 40 year old was presented with the exacerbated chronic lower back pain in the Sacral region with irradiation to the back of the left leg, producing throbbing and burning strong pain behind the knee. Pain aggravates when bending forward or in reaching out position.

In his history he had a back condition from birth and later had an accident that resulted in fracture of the lumbar vertebrae. From time to time he suffers with typical sciatica pain. This time he has been suffering for about two weeks.

His MRI two months prior to this aggravation showed degeneration of L1, disc degeneration, and protrusion of the disc at the level of S1.

He was prescribed strong non-steroid pain medication that made him feel drowsy, but did not provide a full pain relief. Seeking resolution for his pain he decided to try InterX therapy.

The first treatment he felt the pain subside, but pain relief didn't last and the pain reoccured after a few hours. 

The second treatment although pain temporarily reduced, later he felt worse.  ( comments?)

The third treatment pain completely disappeared, leaving him to feel just stiff.
From that point and onwards he used the Personal InterX device to sustain pain relief.

After two and a half weeks use, he repoted no pain, no discomfort, stopped taking pain medication and started with core exercise program to stabilise the lumbar spine.

Treatment was aimed at L1, S1/S2, Scan the whole Lumbar - Sacral zone, dermatomes L1 / L2 and L4, L5, S1 - S3, Trigeminal points, Flexible array to Lumbar, left buttock, right buttock, left back of the knee.
Advice to limit driving, prolong sitting, rest, good nutrition, and gentle stretching exercises.

I had a very similar case to the one above. College professor with 1-2 year low back pain radiating down his RLE.  It was recommended that he go on a long-term medication pain management regimen and he was not interested. Pain was affecting mobility,sleep and mood. He could barely walk into my office. The patient's recovery was pretty amazing. Initial treatment was on chronic a 60 in the lumbar sacral area then following the nerve track into his gluteus. Track was identified by him informing me of the sensations traveling down his leg during treatment. Had a great initial response. Was able to squat in my office after the initial tx. Relief was about a 24-48 duration but pain never really returned to previous higher levels. In following session we gradually increased to 240 and then to acute at 180. Total of about 9 sessions. Back to work, wife called thanking me for improving his mood and sleep.

I am very pleased your patient was helped with the InterX device.
I had many many sciatica syndrome patients, some take longer and some take sooner to recover. it depends on how chronic the condition is, whether this patient active in life style or not, nutrition and more. always work with the doctor through your patient, it is important that medics oversee your progress and also see what wonderful results we are getting with the InterX device
