So sorry you’re hurting, Sciatica is a challenge. I have a 5-minute video on YouTube where I teach how to manage Sciatica. It’s video #2 on TIP OF THE DAY WITH DR J. Lay on the floor near a wall, bend your right knee to put your right foot flat on wall, cross your left ankle over the right knee. That tightness you feel, deep to the Gluteus Maximus, the big butt muscle, is called the PIRIFORMIS, and the Sciatic Nerve runs just deep to the PIRIFORMIS, so stretch this muscle EVERY DAY UNTIL YOU’RE 100. Both sides, take 3 EASY BREATHS...on weaker side (pain), hold for 4-5 easy breaths, work with positioning as what gives you maximum stretch that feels good to you.
Best to you, and LIFE IS SHORT AND VALUABLE!!! FOLLOW YOUR BLISS, and enjoy every moment.
Definitely take your daughter to a chiropractor. If she has a SUBLUXATION in her mid-back, the nerves from T5, 6, 7 innervate the stomach and small intestines for digestion, as a chiropractor, we adjust the spine to relieve these nerves, and it may help her body heal itself from within. I also recommend she start drinking Alkalized water to decrease the acid in her body. You can find out about ALKALIZED WATER AT WATER-REVOLUTION.com/DRJ. My 16- and 17-year-old sons and I are drinking 4-5X the water we used to drink, cleanest, purest water I’ve ever had. It may be very helpful for your daughter.
Knowledge is power, and we never had that class in elementary, Jr High, High school nor College...”GRAVITY AND YOU”. In terms of is it too late, we all deal with the limits of matter, your age and degree of postural dysfunction will determine what can be done to help you. Please call a Doctor of Chiropractic ASAP to find out. I believe that with proper understanding, we can get better everyday until our last breath.
