Welcome to my website!
For the past 15 years I've worked with patients to overcome back and sciatic pain. How did I get started? What's my story? It all be began in 1998. I don't exactly remember where I was when I started having pain in my butt and leg. One day I just became aware that it hurt when I stood up for very long!
I was dumb and thought it would go away, so I ignored the pain. I was an Account Executive at the time. I spent my day sitting at a desk or conference table. Occasionally I'd stand for long periods of time at meetings, events or trade shows. That's when the pain would get really bad!
I would occasionally see my Chiropractor for an adjustment.
Sometimes it helped, sometimes it made it worse. I didn't spend any time thinking the ache would get worse. I am an optimist and believed I just slept wrong, or overdid some weekend sporting event. "Give it time and it'll get better," or so I thought.
I later learned that sciatica becomes less responsive to treatment and MORE likely to result in severe complications, often resulting in surgery and intense medications if it is ignored for 6-12 months!
I made a HUGE mistake, I ignored the pain!
Let's pause my story right here. You see, I failed to get help while I was in Stage 1 and ended up going through ALL of the stages! I survived shots in Stage 2 and surgery in Stage 3.
They actually removed part of a bulging disk at the lowest lumbar vertebrae - the L4- L5 junction. This is what happens when you bury your head in the sand like I did. Do nothing and the worst possible thing will happen!
After the surgery I felt alright for about a month, and then scar tissue started to build up and I found myself right back in Stage 1.
I asked the neurosurgeon why this was happening and what my options were. He said: "Well, you lifted a lot of weights, played football and basically had a good run. The body wears out, there's nothing we can do. You'll need to use pain killers the rest of your life."
I was shocked! That was his answer!
The surgeon, my MD, my DC nobody could explain why it happened to me, so I decided to go back to the University for a Masters degree in Physiology. I believed there HAD to be a reason why it happened, and I was determined to learn how to fix the REAL cause of my problem.
I still remember, it was my 2nd semester of advanced Anatomy when I found the answer! I finally understood WHAT was wrong with me! I discovered what caused my problem and began working to create a solution. For the next six months I did careful trials on myself and others with back issues. Finally I found the combination that got the BEST results! I was my first "guinea pig" and it worked better than I could have hoped! My pain was gone in 6 months and it hasn't returned.
I'm excited to share my Sciatic Relief System with you!
I no longer have any pain and my X-ray's show a spine that is working properly with spinal discs that look full and youthful, like a double stuffed Oreo cookie!
After a few years I finished graduate school and received my Master's degree in Exercise & Wellness. Since that time I've worked with hundreds of back pain clients and helped each one overcome their individual dysfunction.
