      Have you been told that you have Sciatic nerve pain? -Pain that runs down back of your legs either your low back or your hips, then probably you have one of the causes of sciatica or sciatica-liked conditions such as:

      (1) Locked-up spine

      (2) Sacral iliac fixation

      (3) Piriformis syndrome

      (4) Herniated disc (slipped or bulging disc).

      I went to one ER doc, one PCP, one general orthopedic surgeon and one shoulder surgeon after my accident, begging for help. Not ONE of them would order a MRI even after the physical therapist said to stop PT due to excessive pain and rapidly decreasing ROM. Finally went to a chiropractor who ordered it and found the bone and tendon injury months later- all of a sudden the MD's backpedaled. Probably would still end up with the replacement, but I have to wonder...

      Kyle,

      I am not sure why you are marketing a SLAP tear population for lumbar herniated disc pathology other than "you can."

      I get it...I am a chiropractor too, board certified in orthopedics for 18 yrs of my last 23 yrs as a chiropractor (1 1/2% of the profession). I know you are thinking you are healing the world here but you can't fool a fool.

      Before my injury, I have also been an insurance peer-review doc, clinic supervisor for pre and postceptors docs and medlegal consultant in WC and PI as well as certification in multiple subspecialties. Suffice it to say that in general and in my opinion, the chiropractic community has no business treating SLAP tears (short of claiming an occasional lucky dx) and is better left to the expertise of skylor (Sharon), who is a very qualified PT, or a select few chiro's who have advanced training of the same. Perhaps you do, but that was not evident in your post.

      By the way, what is the ICD-9 for a "locked-up spine?"
      3/51 Bilateral VIII C.N. complete neurectomy
      2/60 Failed Supratentorial electrotherapy w/subsequent pancerebral resection
      2/89 Bilateral aqueous humor drainage w/complete retinectomy
      3/02 Quadralateral proximal extremity resection from gestational thalidomide exposure

      Not only is cavitator correct that chiropractors shoud not treat a slap tear, nor should they or would they in fact treat a herniated disk. I was refused treatment by several chiropractors here in Tallahassee for a herniated disk. They said that they could do more harm and the risk of further damage was too great. A neurological surgeon however did fix the problem.
