Sciatica

Dear Dr. Barone,

The first time I heard about you was on the radio on am 1160 in March 2005. You were talking about all my symptoms: Sciatic pain in right leg, hand pain, shoulder pain, memory loss, upper arm pain, acid reflux, & headaches

I decided not to live with these ailments anymore. After the first adjustment I felt lighter and taller and “in place”. After three months of treatments I have had less shoulder pain, my memory is improving, I have less headaches, no hand pains, less upper arm pains, and my sciatic pain is very infrequent.

I’m very pleased with the care that I’m receiving and I am very confident that with continued treatment my health will be restored.

Thank you Dr. Barone and staff. Sincerely, – Barbara H.


Dear Barone Spinal Care Team,

I have suffered for 46 years with upper and lower back pain. Also have carpel tunnel which has caused intense pain. For the last several years I have had numb areas at various points of my body. Sometimes I just hurt all over and my sense of well being had dropped to near non existence. The slightest exertion became overwhelming.

Then on March 22, 2006 sciatica hit me like a ton of bricks. I could not sit, lay or stand comfortably. I was beside myself with horrific pain and anxiety. My doctor referred me to an orthopedic surgeon, who ordered an MRI and lower back X-rays. The findings were he told me that I had 3 bad discs, some arthritis and he could not see what was causing the sciatica. His options were spinal injections or surgery which did not appeal to me at all!

Then on April 18, 2006, Trigeminal neuralgia struck. So long story short, that’s when my daughter called and made an appointment for me to come in an see you. Upon my first visit I was calmed by the atmosphere of comfort, caring and hope.

So in just 4 weeks my trigeminal neuralgia is GONE, my sciatica is 95% better and I feel better than I have felt in well over a year. My general sense of well being has improved tremendously. And I am confident it will continue to do so because of your expertise. God has truly blessed you.

I am eternally grateful that our paths crossed on this journey of life!

Sincerely and Gratefully, – Annette B.


Dear Barone Spinal Care,

I am 78 year old and I have been suffering from sciatic pain in my left leg since 2005. I had seen an orthopedic surgeon who offered me two choices, one was to try epidurals at a pain clinic or surgery. I tried the first epidural with no relief, then I decided to go with his second option which was to have back surgery. My back surgery took place on February 2, 2006. Following the back surgery, I was pain free for two months, I thought I was “home free.” However, equally severe pain returned and the surgeon said it was the nerves “waking up” and it would either get better, or I’d have to live with it.

In early November I decided to try your methods for treatment; as I had tried everything else. To this date, I have had three adjustments, all painless, and although I have a long way to go I have noticed significant improvements in my health. The leg pain I was previously experiencing is far less painful than it was before. I have noticed other subtle improvements in body functions that plagued me for years. I am truly looking forward to the rest of my treatments and the fine care I receive from you and the Barone Spinal Care staff.

It is a pleasure to come to the office, everyone is friendly, helpful, and welcoming. I am always greeted with a “good morning” and a smile. Thank you so much!

Sincerely, – Patricia G.

Dear Dr. Barone,

I heard about Barone Spinal Care while listening to WYLL. I had trouble with sciatic nerve pain since January. I went to a traditional chiropractor and did get some relief but still had trouble walking and had slight pain.

I came to Dr. Barone in May with the complaint of neck pain. I felt relief immediately after the first adjustment. I have been seeing Dr. Barone twice a week since May and since then my neck pain is gone, I’m walking better, I taking the stairs when I can, and instead of sitting around I’m able to move up and down.

I’m thankful that I am getting much better since coming to Barone Spinal Care.

Dear Barone Spinal Care Team,

I came in for a consultation around Thanksgiving 2008 with numerous nagging issues like sciatica in my right leg, neck stiffness, knots in my shoulders, tightness in my lower back, and tightness in my hamstrings and I an only 35 years old. Sleeping at night was also very uncomfortable.

I remember the pain I was in before coming to your office, it was not that great as to detract from my everyday life but now, after the alleviation of most of my ailments, I can safely say that I would not want to go back to that discomfort again.

After being under care for less than one month I had significant improvement in all of my muscle issues. I can now wake up and proceed to a workout without the long warm-up that was needed to loosen my muscle stiffness. My neck doesn’t crack or pop and is very loose. My sciatica doesn’t bother me anymore and my lower back isn’t in shambles when I wake up in the morning. Speaking of waking up I fall asleep almost immediately and can jump out of bed refreshed when the alarm clock goes off.

I am still shocked and bewildered that the speed of the exams and the gentleness of the corrections can lead to such marked improvements. I have been recommending Barone Spinal Care to a lot of my friends and family and would suggest that everyone should at least get a consultation.

Sincerely, – Amar P.

I am 50 years old and I met Dr. Bulcher at the Gluten Free Convention in May of 2016. I joking asked him to talk to me about sciatica.

I explained to Dr. Bulcher that in August of 2015 I found myself suffering with extreme pain from a sciatic attack. The pain was so intense I could not walk, stand, sit or lie down. The ER prescribed muscle relaxers, nerve relaxers, anti inflammatory and stretching exercises. It took over three weeks for pain and discomfort to disappear.

At the time I met Dr. Bulcher the sciatica had started to flare back up and I was three days into all the medications again. Dr. Bulcher explained to me after scanning my back that the cause of my discomfort may not be from my lower back / sciatica. He suggested an office visit to discuss possible causes.

After discussing the possible causes he suggested X-rays to check my neck for alignment issues. At the follow up and review of the X-rays it was suggested I be treated for a dislocated vertebrae in the upper neck. I figured what did I have to lose if it didn’t work. I had seen a chiropractor last year and it caused the discomfort to be worst.

After my first adjustment I noticed a change. I felt taller, lighter on my feet and it felt like my head was tipping to the other side of my body. I experienced a little vertigo but it quickly went away after resting.

The very next morning upon waking up my hips, knees and ankles did not hurt like they had been for last several months. I jumped right out of bed. I felt great. Very little to no pain in my sciatica.

I am a believer.

The office staff are wonderful. Every time I walk into the office Kasia greets me by name. Everyone is friendly and welcoming. The doctors are knowledgeable and dedicated to the wellness of the patient.

I am so thankful for meeting Dr. Bulcher and Barone Spinal Care.

Sincerely,
– Kimberly Carl
