Back Pain / Sciatica
Posted by: Anthony

For the last 4 months now I've been suffering severe lower back pain almost daily. In 1995 I suffered a herniated disc with symptoms of sciatica. I've tried acupuncture, chiropractic and now for 2 months I've been doing yoga stretching exercises to no avail. The pain is centered in the small of my back with severe cramps down my right hamstring. Is there any thing else I can do to alleviate the pain?

Many people get renewed stability and relief of pain with prolotherapy and if the herniation is still present, you may want to find a doc who can give you IV colchicine. Use Search This Site above to read up on these items.
