A patient came into the office last week after being involved in a car accident. She complained of neck pain and headaches. After talking to her, we decided to treat her neck pain, then she told me that the worse pain was her sciatica. She proceeded to explain that the sciatic pain has been a problem for a year or more. She said since the accident she has not slept for more than 3 hours at a time. The sciatic pain has increased so much since the accident she has gone to see a surgeon. After treating the lower back, the sciatic pain has gone and she feels great. You never know what people think is important during the first visit. We need to get the full picture every time.
