    How I got rid of 2 1/2 years of sciatic pain
    Stainmstr posted:
    I had sciatic pain for over 2 years went to chiropractor twice a week for months, tried acupunture and ever nasd and pain pill out there. I never had any relief AT ALL. I almost closed my business over this pain I couldn't function. A good friend of mine introduced me to a product that changed my life forever and now its been 2 years and have never had a relapse, and I move heavy furniture everyday. The product is OPC-3 all I can say is wow this is the strongest anti-inflamatory known to man, and its all natural. You can learn all about it at look at it do your homework about it like I did, plus if what your doing isn't working why not try something different, it could work for you too. And no injections that deplete your bone density.yeah that's a healthy option.

    hi and welcome to the support group-

    what you should know about sciatic nerve pain is that it never 'goes' away by itself or 'heals' itself - there is a reason that you have sciatic nerve problems - those mainly are that something is causing the nerve to be pinched - either from joints being out of wack or you may have a disc(s) that has bulged and is pressing on the nerve root -

    before taking any supplements for sciatic nerve problems it's best that you be fully examined by either an Orthopedic Spine Specialist or a Neurosurgeon Spine Specialist - this does not mean you need surgery but they are the best at reading results of MRI/CT Scans -

    it's important that you understand what is causing the nerve pains and that possibly one of the adjustments you received may have pushed that nerve root around where you don't feel the nerve pain, right now - but it could come back. so it's important that you be fully examined and diagnosed before taking any type of supplements -

    please keep us updated - take care - Joy
