Abstract:

Are you one of the 20 million Americans who will seek help for back problems this year? You may belong to the group of up to 5 million who have sciatica, an often mysterious condition of neurological origin. If you are among these-or suspect you might be-let internationally renowned specialist Loren Fishman, MD, explain your pain and help instruct you to find a lasting cure! In clear language and with illuminating diagrams and illustrations throughout, Sciatica Solutions features: explanation of the seven common causes of sciatica; review of the basic physiology of the lower back to help you visualize and understand the causes of pain; several easy diagnostic tests and a diagnosis chart, helping you determine whether you are among the annual 5 million with sciatica-or, if you have had a professional diagnosis, simply helping you fully understand the condition; once you know you have sciatica, full outlines of the range of therapies available and potentially necessary for treatment: physical therapy and chiropractic, medicinal therapies, ultrasound and electrical stimulation, and even surgical options; and with Fishman's expertise as a thirty-year practitioner of yoga and proponent of alternative treatments, a comprehensive guide to lifestyle adjustments-everything from eating right to taking up Pilates-you can make for lasting comfort and cure.
