Unrelenting Sciatic Pain Resolved in One Treatment

Unrelenting sciatic pain can destroy one's quality of life. Unfortunately most medical doctors, physical therapists, chiropractors and osteopaths do not factor in cranial distortions in relationship to sciatic pain. Eva was suffering chronic sciatic pain with no resolution from convention treatment.

The cranial sciatic pain connection comes from the dural tube. This connective tissue surrounds the brain then exits through the foramen magnum at the base of the skull. The dural tube then extends all the way down to the sacrum. When the cranial bones become distorted the dural tube becomes tensioned directly affecting the sacrum. The sacrum has the piriformis muscle attaching to the second to the fourth sacral tubercle. The piriformis muscle lies on the sciatic nerve and can stimulate pain. Releasing the cranial distortion corrects the sacrum, which allows the piriformis muscle to relax and the pain disappears.

Examination of Eva revealed a reversed cranial bone motion and dural membrane tension. Correcting Eva's skull alignment immediately resolved her chronic sciatic pain. The correction was done in 2012 and Eva has been pain free for the past 5 years.

To solve complex problems one must dig lateral holes to find the solution.
