Case Studies - Back Pain & Sciatica

"People with chronic disabilities such as chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, MS, cerebral palsy, muscular dystrophy and arthritis have shown a gradual improvement in the condition and also in quality of life. It is always worth trying the Bowen Technique because in many cases it has been known to trigger surprising and unexpected recoveries when nothing else has worked."

Back Pain and Sciatica

Low Back Pain
40 year old male suffered pain across entire lower back for over ten years. The pain was unexplained by doctors and was sporadic and inconsistent; sometimes a heat sensation, sometimes sharp pain, and occurs for no particular reason (usual causes can be twisting of posture, lifting something heavy, playing sport or other injuries). Initial cause of the pain is unknown.

Client has lived with the pain for the last ten years and has until recently had to take time off work because of the pain.

The client was experiencing pain at the time of the initial treatment. Immediately after the first Bowen session however, he noticed a change in his posture and the pain had gone entirely. However, a few hours later the pain returned and with increased intensity (this is a common reaction in Bowen clients) and that night he suffered headaches and felt very lethargic.

A few days later the pain disappeared for a few days. Just previous to the second Bowen treatment the pain returned again but with much less intensity than normally experienced.

At the end of the second treatment the pain in the lower back was still evident and the client felt very groggy. Two days later, the pain disappeared and has still not returned (some 7 months later).

36 year old male suffering severe sciatica. The pain is constant and is sharp and intense (right side only). He has had trouble sleeping for several nights and is also constipated.

After treatment one he felt immediate relief from the sciatic pain. Lots of reactions occurred during the treatment (red spots on the surface of the skin where the tension was being released, warmth in his toes, tingling down his right leg). Client had pain in his left leg the night of the treatment however the following morning the pain was gone.

A second treatment was given seven days later to ensure the sciatica would not return.

Three months later the client has not experienced any sciatic pain at all.
