Sciatica: True sciatica is leg pain that shoots from back, down the leg past the knee. This mimics the path of the sciatic nerve, thus it's name. Young patients more likely to have herniated disc. Older patients, pressure from arthritic spurs. All can be treated non-surgically if not getting worse.

Yes: Normally, when you look at the spine from the back it should be straight. If it is curved and the curve is greater than 10 degrees, then it is called scoliosis. A laminectomy is a surgical procedure done primarily to decompress "pinched" nerves. If an excessive amount of the stabilizing structures of the spine are removed during the decompression, a laminectomy can cause or worsen scolioisis. ...Read more

I'm dealing with IBS with incapacitating pain. The two gastroenterologist who see me didn't help me much. What else can I do for my condition?
Diet and fluids: I rarely prescribe meds for ibs. In my experience teaching people to eat and drink properly resolves most if not all symptoms when the patient is compliant and follows through. Hi fiber, 80-100 ounces non caffeine, non alcoholic beverages each day, regular meal times, excercise. Consistency is the key to being symptom free. ...Read more

Facet pain and DDD: Degenerative changes occur in the spine like wrinkles to skin. Most do not need surgery. Nsaid's, tylenol, (acetaminophen) ice/heat, salonpas hot patches, pilates/yoga/piyo are non-medical options. Mckenzie pt is a great program, but requires a doc's rx.

Start with family MD: Since most people get better without surgery, start with your primary care doctor who might prescribe modification of activities, medicines, physiotherapy, anti-inflammatories, and possibly cortisone injections in the spine. If you remain symptomatic despite all that, your doctor may send you to a neurosurgeon, but that is not the first place to start...Again, because most don't need surgery. ...Read more
