In general, 70% of our patients do resolve their problem at their first visit, 25% in two visits, and 5% in three visits.
Low Back Pain and Sciatica are without any doubt, a worldwide frequent phenomenon. Basically, 90-95% of the patients on a global scale, can resolve their problem easily—with the right method of course—if we exclude 5-10% of the patients that might be exhibiting these disorders along with other serious and/or incurable diseases. However, even in these latter cases, there is still a lot of chance for recovery.
Broadly speaking, the prevalence percentage of Low Back Pain and Sciatica among patients is about fifty-fifty, meaning that among the patients with low back pain, half of them do experience pain in the lower back only, while the other half, do experience pain and/or causalgia (strong burning sensation) and/ or numbness in the lower back-buttock-back of thigh-leg , i.e. along the course of the sciatic nerve.
In the latter case of sciatica, the pain in the beginning may be confined at the region where the lower back begins from the buttocks —bony region of the lower back, i.e. 4 th- 5 th lumbar vertebra/sacrum/region between posterior superior iliac spines and posterior inferior iliac spines— and radiates to the buttock only, and/or to the back of the thigh/knee only (the pain is distributed along a narrow band of one-two inches wide). If the pain persists then it covers the whole course of the sciatic nerve, i.e. radiates down the leg too. In some cases, both legs may be affected.

IMPORTANT NOTE TO ALL OUR VIEWERS
DESPITE THE FACT THAT YOU WILL FREQUENTLY ENCOUNTER WORDS OF MEDICAL TERMINOLOGY IN OUR TOPICS, STILL WE WANT TO ENCOURAGE ALL OUR VIEWERS TO READ ALL THE WAY THROUGH TO THE END OF THE FOLLOWING TOPICS.
SERIOUS INFORMATION CONCERNING THE SAFETY OF LOW BACK PAIN AND SCIATICA SUFFERERS ARE DISCLOSED!
IT IS THEREFORE SOLELY FOR THE INTEREST OF ACCURACY THAT MEDICAL JARGON IS UNAVOIDABLY EMPLOYED.
FOR THE INTEREST OF SIMPILICITY, WE DO USE DIFFERENT TERMS TO DESCRIBE LOW BACK PAIN AND SCIATICA FROM THE ONES THAT ARE USUALLY EMPLOYED BY WESTERN MEDICINE.
SO, INSTEAD OF USING TERMS SUCH AS ACUTE/SUBACUTE/CHRONIC LOW BACK PAIN (MEANING PAIN PRESENT LESS THAN 3 MONTHS / LONGER THAN 5-7 WEEKS BUT NOT LONGER THAN 12 WEEKS/ PRESENT FOR AT LEAST THREE MONTHS, RESPECTIVELY) AND/OR ACUTE/ SUBACUTE /CHRONIC SCIATICA, THAT MERELY SIGNIFY THE DURATION OF EACH DISORDER, WE DO USE TERMS SUCH AS PRIMARY LOW BACK PAIN/SCIATICA , OR SECONDARY LOW BACK PAIN/SCIATICA (THESE TERMS ARE ALSO EMPLOYED BY WESTERN MEDICINE TOO).
THE TERM PRIMARY DENOTES THAT THE DISORDER APPEARED FIRST IN ORDER, WHEREAS THE TERM SECONDARY DENOTES THAT THE DISORDER APPEARED AS A RESULT OF ANOTHER DISORDER. THE TERM PRIMARY BEARS A SECOND SENSE, MEANING CONGENITAL, HOWEVER THIS SECOND MEANING DOES NOT APPLY IN THE SUBJECT OF LOW BACK PAIN AND SCIATICA.
IT MUST BE CLARIFIED THOUGH, THAT EVEN IN THE CASE OF ANOTHER PRE-EXISTING DISORDER, THERE IS STILL A POSSIBILITY FOR ANOTHER PRIMARY DISORDER TO DEVELOP THAT IT WILL NOT BE DIRECTLY LINKED TO THE PRE-EXISTING DISORDER. THE TERMS PRIMARY AND SECONDARY ARE FURTHER SUBCATEGORIZED TO GIVE AN EVEN CLEARER AND MORE PRECISE PICTURE TO THE PATIENT, eg:
(i) PRIMARY LOW BACK PAIN NON-INFLAMMATORY TYPE
(ii) PRIMARY LOW BACK PAIN NON-INFLAMMATORY TYPE WITH INVASION OF COLD
(iii) PRIMARY SCIATICA OF PSYCHOLOGIC ORIGIN
(iv) SECONDARY SCIATICA OF INFECTIVE ORIGIN, etc.
IN THIS MANNER WE CAN HAVE A MORE DIRECT APPROACH TO THE DIAGNOSIS AND TREATMENT OF THE PATIENT. SO THE PATIENT DOES NOT HAVE TO SUFFER EVEN FURTHER, TILL A DIAGNOSIS IS REACHED, OR UNDERGO UNNECESSARY TESTING, i.e MRI, CT, X-RAYS etc, OR EVEN UNNECESSARY BUT MOST OF ALL NON-EFFECTIVE TREATMENT.
ON THE OTHER HAND, THE ABOVE IMAGING MODALITIES ARE INDEED HELPFUL IN CASE THERE IS A SERIOUS DISEASE INVOLVED, i.e. INFECTION, TUMOUR, TRAUMA etc.
HOWEVER FOR THE MOST CASES OF LOW BACK PAIN AND SCIATICA, THINGS ARE TOTALLY SAFE AS THEIR PATHOLOGY DOES NOT THREATEN YOUR HEALTH , DESPITE THE GREAT INTENSITY OF PAIN THAT THESE TWO DISORDERS PRODUCE.
HOWEVER, IF THERE ARE OTHER SYMPTOMS ALONG WITH LOW BACK PAIN AND/OR SCIATICA, SUCH AS FEVER, LOSS OF BLADDER AND/OR BOWEL CONTROL etc, THEN YOU NEED TO BE TREATED IMMEDIATELY AT A GENERAL HOSPITAL !!!
INTERNAL SELF-SHIATSU IS INDEED VERY EFFECTIVE FOR PRIMARY LOW BACK PAIN AND/OR SCIATICA. IT CAN ALSO BE EFFECTIVE/ HELPFUL FOR MANY OF THE CASES OF SECONDARY LOW BACK PAIN AND/OR SCIATICA.
