Severe Sciatic Leg Pain

I came to see Dr. Bolick because of severe sciatic pain in my legs. My walking, already difficult and painful because of osteo-arthritis affecting my knees, had become so bad that I could not take any steps without using a walker.

After diagnosis and several treatments which eased the symptoms, Dr. Bolick prescribed a series of treatments along with physical therapy. Although the ongoing treatments were effectively dealing with my sciatic problem, they were doing little to change the arthritis problem in my knees. However, the physical therapy sessions were making a difference. I began learning to do simple exercises designed to reduce knee swelling and pain and increase mobility. Although I have since been released from PT, I have continued doing the exercises at home and in the pool.

Thanks, Dr. Bolick and staff.
