A Bit of St. Patrick's Day Fun

With St. Patrick's day coming up on Monday, I thought I'd get a head start on the holiday with a little bit of fun.

When I had pain from the sciatic nerve being pressed upon, I too saw doctors. When one started talking about surgury, my good friend said she would try any alternative before surgury. I saw a Chiropractor, and had the luck to get a good one. All pain was gone within a couple weeks.I was pain free for years until I changed my boxspring to one I thought would be better. NAively I didn't put 2+2 together for a while, saw the chiropracter again for the first time in more than 6 years, and it helped a bit. I put a board under the mattress, 1" plywood, and all pain stopped and has not returned. It could be something as simple as that. The sciatic nerve which goes thru your pelvis near your hip, hence the hip hurting, and goes down your leg into your foot, causes pain when it is pinched. If your pelvis is too far forward on one side, or the other, or too high or too low, it can put pressure on the nerve causing pain. Try, while walking to consciously correct the position of your pelvis- put one hand in front andone in back on the other side and push , see if it helps, raise one hip see if it gives relief. I have found this useful when I start to hurt from sleeping at a bad angle mostly. I have a relative who has had many surguries and they are not always a cure for the pain. If your foot is going numb, it indicates very severe pressure, and possibly for a long time, and sometimes they have to do surgury, but I would try other alternatives first.
