For 6 months, I had pain from my sciatic area. I had gone to my doctor and tried heat, cold, a steroid shot, anti-inflammatory. Finally, the specialist referred me to PT. Kelli has been fabulous at strengthening my, “core” and working through my pain levels. When I seemed to hit a plateau, I did dry needling. OMG! What a relief. That was exactly what I needed to achieve a sharply decreased pain level. Kelli gave me exercises to do at home. But, after the dry needling, my pain level dropped to 1 or 0 in a matter of hours. PT is a great answer for a sciatic issue if you will work half as hard as your physical therapist does.
