Interviewer: Today is April 23, 2014, andwe'reArkansas Spinal Care and Neuropathy Treatment Center. Sir, what is your name? Steve: Steve Williamson. Interviewer: All right, Steve, so tell mewhat brought you here. What conditions were you suffering with before you came here toArkansas Spinal Care? Steve: I had back and neck pain and numbnessand pain going down my right arm and everything. Interviewer: How far down your right arm didit go? Steve: All the way to the tips of my fingers.
Interviewer: Was it bad? Steve: Yes, it was. Interviewer: Tell me about it. Explain howit felt and how often you dealt with it. Steve: Well, the tips of my fingers were sonumb I couldn't pick anything up or hang onto it. I'd be opping it all the time. The painin my arm, it would just be miserable, especially if I was iving or just trying to sit anelax. And all that's gone. Interviewer: Back, leg, arm, everything? Steve: Leg and arm, yeah. I camealso whereI fell on the ice and hurt my ankle pretty
bad, and it's completely well now just fromthe laser treatments. Interviewer: Yeah, that day when you camein and you said that you twisted your ankle, I said, quot;Well, we'll just do some laser treatmentson that.quot; After one or two treatments, how long did it take you before that laser helpedthat ankle? Steve: Oh, I'd say probably about four treatments. Interviewer: About four treatments. Steve: Then that's when I really noticed thepain going away. It would feel better after each treatment. It really would.
Interviewer: Like remarkably better, or justa little bit? Steve: No, remarkably. It would take a lotof the pain away. By the next day, it might be hurting again, but then after about thefourth or fifth day, the pain started easing up quite a bit. It's gone now. It's completelygone, and I feel great. Interviewer: Awesome. Thank you. I'm sureyou went to a lot of different s. Most of my patients have been around the blocka time or two with healthcare. What else have you tried to help with this, and what didthey tell you? Steve: I went to the first about it,the family . They'd done a MRI and said
that I had some kind of swellingand aroundmy spinal cord or whatever and that's what was causing my painmy arms and the numbness.They referred me to a Seracy SP, which that told me I needed to havesurgery. I didn't want surgery, and that's when I came here. Interviewer: Okay. Steve: And I'm glad I did. Interviewer: Thank you. Overall, what haveyou seen with my other patients? Because you've been here, you know how they've done. Whatwould you say about the experience here in
the and the overall results? Steve: I would say I had only heard probablya couple people say that they're not sure if it's working or not. Everybody else thatI've talked to or seen, it's just done remarkable for them. There's a few of them that I justcouldn't even believe with my own eyes, just how they comehere. And then now they'vewalked out of here and they're doing even better every day that I see them now. Interviewer: Awesome, Steve. I appreciateit. What would you say to somebody who needs this care and this program?
Hey y'all, it's Jo and my assistantwith me today is Bailey again. And today I'm going to be talking about your piriformis.So lots of times I hear people say they've got that sciatic nerve, well actually everybodyhas a sciatic nerve, but you can have pain coming from that nerve, and a lot of timesthat piriformis muscle is causing the pain. So we're gonna show you some stretches tostretch out your piriformis and hopefully get rid of that sciatic nerve pain. Alrightlet's go on to our backs. Here we go. I think we're gonna maybe move Bailey out of the way.In the first stretch for your piriformis is a pretty simple one. A lot of pictures youmay get from your therapist will actually
show one leg down, I actually like for youto have it staying up so you can prop your foot over it. So your gonna make almost likea figure 4 with your legs and then what you're gonna do, the side that's hurting, so my leftside is hurting, I'm gonna cross that leg over. And what I'm gonna do is I'm gonna bringmy knee with my opposite hand towards my shoulder over here. So I'm pulling this leg up and acrossmy body. And what you wanna do same kind of thing with all the stretches, you wanna pulland you wanna feel a stretch under there. Soon as you feel a really good stretch youwanna hold it for 30 seconds. So remember up and across the body. Just coming up isnot gonna get that piriformis stretch. But
coming up and across the body like I'm tryingto bring that knee towards my shoulder. Holding it there for about 30 secondsa real 30 seconds.And then coming back down and you wanna do that 3 times. Now the next one to do, sometimesthis is a little harder for people, but what your gonna do is your gonna keep that samefigure 4, and what your gonna do is your gonna take your hands and on the opposite side thatit's hurting, so the hurting side is still up crossed over it's still my left side. I'mgonna take my hands and put them underneath my thigh, and I'm gonna bring my leg up, andI'm gonna pull until I feel that stretch underneath there. Now some people might have a hard timegrabbing on to their leg here, so again you
can use your belt, or your leash and putit under, around your leg, and pull up towards you like this. Same kind of thing, you wantto hold that stretch for 30 secondsbye Bailey, we'll see you later and then 3 times each.Alright, so now you're gonna bring that down getting it nice and stretched. For those ofyou that need a stronger stretch, those might not be stretching it out quite as much, whatI'm gonna have you do is I'm gonna have you turn over. And what your gonna do is the sidethat's hurt again, my left side, I'm gonna bring my leg up across. Now as you can see,this is something you have to be pretty high level, pretty flexible to do, but it's gonnaget a fantastic stretch. So your gonna put
your knee over across your body, and bringyour body down. So it's almost that same concept, you're bringing that knee towards the oppositeshoulder, but what you're doing now, is you're using your body weight to bring it down. Youcan stretch that back leg as far as you can. You can bring your arms down, but that kneeis essentially going towards that opposite shoulder. 30 second stretch, 3 times each.Alright and there you have it. Those were your piriformis stretches. So if you had somepressure on that sciatic nerve, hopefully that will loosen it up a little bit.
