In 1997 I injured my back quite severely in an accident at work. After seeing a specialist at hospital I was prescribed painkillers, anti-inflammatories and rest as there was very little they could doto help me. After a few weeks I had only made a slight improvement to the pain and discomfort. After follow-up visits to my local doctor I realised orthodox treatments were not going to help me, but I couldn't put up with the pain for the rest of my life.

An important thing to understand is that leg pain is a symptom of a problem-of something compressing or irritating the nerve roots that comprise the sciatic nerve-rather than a medical diagnosis ormedical disorder in an of itself. This is an important distinction because it is the underlying diagnosis that often needs to be treated in order to relieve sciatic nerve pain. Common causes of sciatica are a lumbar herniated disc, spinal stenosis, degenerative disc disease or spondylolisthesis.
