Sciatic vs. Piriformis Greetings All, Let me start out by giving the Team of Professionals at Pinnacle Integrative an 8 out of 5 stars. Here’s some back ground; I became associated with the Pinnacle Team through my wife who started one of Pinnacle’s wellness programs as a result of going to a Pinnacle seminar regarding Knee Pain and Knee Replacement options (just for your reference the Knee treatment was a success). Regarding my treatment; during my latest bout with Sciatic pain (Fall of 2016) and the visit to the usual doctors, one of the Physicians’ Assistant recommended and provided a referral for Acupuncture (what a shocker). You don’t need a referral to be seen at Pinnacle but I thought it to be remarkable that an AMA discipline regarded Acupuncture as a viable treatment (baby steps). With the referral in hand I knew exactly who to contact which set the wheels in motion with the team at Pinnacle. Questionnaires and forms were started and my Acupuncture treatment started the same day which rendered a favorable result. During the follow-on visits my different options for treatment were discussed during the reviews that happen periodically based on type of treatment. At this time I have completed the major treatment milestones of Acupuncture with a onetime treatment of the Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) which seemed to accelerate the rejuvenating effects of the Acupuncture treatment. With the follow-on support from the team at Pinnacle it has been a very active summer and I look forward to an increase of lifestyle improvements. Prior to my teaming up with the folks a Pinnacle I have endured/suffered low back, hip socket and leg pain off and on for more than 15 years. On two separate occasions (a couple of years apart) I was brought to the ground by an immediate loss of support from my right leg. Sleeping was impossible due to the pain encountered in the horizontal position and my only means of mobility was the use of a walker for support, I got pretty good at sleeping standing up. The Surgeons diagnosis was a referral pain coming from the 2 inflamed muscles that crossover the Sciatic Nerve. The treatment was anti-inflammatories, pain killers and Physical Therapy. After a couple of months of that regiment the symptoms would recede to a nagging reminder of a potential flair-up. In closing; take command of your health and wellbeing you will feel better for it.
I joined the program about six weeks ago. I’m now off Januvia and Lipitor. This was the turning point in my life.
In 4 months I went from a size 50 waist to a size 40. I’m completely off insulin, where I was up to 30 units. I was having a lot of pain in my legs and feet, and also numbness in my hands. My eyesight was even blurry. And that is all gone away!
Type 2 Diabetes?
“After 5 months I’ve lost 58 lbs and my doctor has taken me off all my diabetes and blood pressure medications. My blood sugar dropped from 205 to 193 to 85-93. This saved my life!
Fantastic results.. Unlike any other acupuncture treatment or therapy I have had. Highly recommended.
