I am 20 years old and have been suffering from severe sciatica for probably 7 months now. I think it was triggered by running 2 miles a day for over a year. Once it got so painful I finally stopped running and went to my chiropractor. My first chiropractor refused to do anything other than one adjustment, I saw no improvement. I proceeded to get X-rays of my lower back. The xrays revealed that I my hips were slightly rotated causing my sacrum to be "out of whack". I went to another chiropractor who diagnosed me with sciatica... pain from my rearend to my toes on my left side. After several adjustments, muscle stim, and exercises my condition was not improving. I decided to get an MRI, all this showed is that I have 2 slightly buldging disks that are contributing to the pinched nerve. I continued my chiropractor care and still saw NO improvement (I went twice a week for a few months). So I stopped and tried acupuncture, which only provided temporary relief. I am still in extreme amounts of pain! Please, does anyone have any suggestions?! I am desperate! I have been recommended spinal decompression therapy which can cost thousands, being a college student I cannot afford that! I am open to anything other than surgery and drugs! Thanks for your time!
