Sciatic Nerve Entrapment due to Fibrous Adhesion in the Deep Gluteal Space: Proposed Clinical Diagnostic Criteria and Therapy Using Manual Adhesion Release®

Sciatic nerve entrapment due to fibrous adhesion (SNE-A) in the deep gluteal space is an under diagnosed entity that is responsible for a portion of low back pain (LBP) cases. This case series aimed to (1) Propose new clinical diagnostic criteria, (2) Determine the frequency of SNE-A among a population with LBP, and (3) Assess clinical outcomes after manual therapy for SNE-A.

    A new distinction is emerging in the chiropractic profession. The traditional classification was between straight and mixer. Straights specialized in adjustments of the spine only and considered anything else to be something other than chiropractic. Mixers realized that patients would benefit from adjustments and additional treatments such as heat, electric stimulation, exercises, etc.

  • Back Pain Literature-What Have We Learned?

    Knowledge is the foundation of clinical success. In health care, this knowledge is shared through professional literature published and critiqued by our peers. This is done in an effort to determine what information is most accurate and balanced. Any idea that has been exposed to intelligent critique, then validated or modified, is improved.
