Is There a Cure for Meralgia Paresthetica?

Thigh pain, or numbness in the thigh, can be life altering for many.  Any time there is numbness, it can be a sign of possible nerve damage and should be taken seriously.  Once a nerve becomes permanently damaged, it is irreversible and normal function is gone forever.

Numbness in the thigh is a condition called Meralgia Paresthetica.  Meralgia Paresthetica can be a painful condition for those who suffer from it for a prolonged period of time.  Most people can bear pain or numbness for a short time period but when a condition becomes chronic, it can become quite bothersome.

Over half of my patients come to me after having failed neck or low back surgery.  I know the neck and back pain world very well.  I’ve heard thousands of sad stories of lost quality of life, lost relationships, lost time with family and loved ones.

What is a Slipped Disc?

Throughout my career, I have had many patients come in and describe their low back pain, leg pain, sciatica, hip pain, neck pain, and spinal stenosis as being caused by a ‘Slipped Disc”.

I’ve often thought that the term slipped disc was a funny one because it really doesn’t fit with human anatomy.  A spinal disc is the cushion between two vertebrae so how can it be “slipped”?    Continue reading “What is a Slipped Disc?”

My Quest to Solve Low Back Pain

I have some really exciting news for all of my patients and future patients.  I just got back from a business trip where I purchased another machine to add to my treatment protocols for severe low back, hip and leg pain.

It helps people with severe low back pain, sciatica, peripheral neuropathy, and spinal stenosis caused by a herniated disc, bulging disc, facet joint arthropathy, and degenerative disc disease.

In life, we all want to get better.  I am always working to do better for my patients and add more tools to my tool box when it comes to available treatment options for people who are suffering and in need of some serious help. Continue reading “My Quest to Solve Low Back Pain”

What Causes Sciatica or Leg Pain?

Through the last 15 plus years, many patients have come through my program for the treatment of sciatica or “leg pain”.  Sciatica is the most common form of “radiculopathy” (nerve pain) in the legs.
