Success Story: Sciatica & Piriformis Syndrome

Now I Know What to Do to Ease the Pain

For the first time in decades, Doran’s sciatica is almost nonexistent. Besides an occasional flare-up… she is practically pain free. Best of all, at 55, she’s able to stay active at an age when most people have to slow down. “Now when my sciatica does occur, I know what to do to ease the pain — stretch and strengthen like crazy…” For the past four years, her twice-weekly practice has taught her to stretch correctly, concentrate on proper alignment, and focus on her overall physical needs. This has been a departure from her physical therapy exercises, which she says are often designed just for specific areas. Now she fights the entire fire instead of individual flames.  – Matthew Solan
