      The root of all those symptoms and signs are coming from sciatic nerve
      impingement. So the key acupuncture treatment principle should be relieving
      the nerve by deep acupuncture on UB 23, UB25, UB28 and HUatuojiaji with
      strong electrical stimulation. For the excruiating pain, 5 dragon needling
      technique may be used.

      Smile Greeting everybody in this group - Just joined and writing my
      problem with a request to doctors and specialists to study it and
      answer me a suitable reply

      About 4 years back I have an attack of nervous breakdown resulting
      in right side footdrop. At that time my MRI revealed Disc
      herniation at L3 L4 left side with likely impingenment upon the
      existing nerve roots. That time I felt excruciating pain in my back
      and both buttock and I couldn't stand up straight anymore. This
      went away after 2 days but then I felt pain down my right leg all
      the way down into my foot. The pain stated from buttocks and goes to
      right foot. I can walk on my heels and can tiptoe, but
      walking on my toes was more difficult with my right foot ie can
      walk but with decided limp. There was drop of foot but there was
      burning pain ,tingling ,numbness & inability to sense vibration.

      From that day I am taking physical therapy called electrical muscle
      stimulator / I.F.T. and hot dip waxing to maintain muscle tone of
      right foot. Since recovery is taking longer time I request your
      goodself as which type of Reglexology Therapy is to be performed to
      evaluate nerve.

      As thru physiotherapy footdrop has been heeled and there is no
      drop of foot but presently there is heaviness / stiffness
      on my right foot. As I have also learned Su jok Acupuncture /
      accupressure and according to this I have pressurise the healing
      point related to lumber - ankle and foot. Moreover doing
      acupuncture of nervous system as per correspondence points with
      time acupuncture method and tonifying liver and kidney meridian thru
      6 ki method with liver joint meridian thru Tri Origin model which is
      latest therapy given by prof park jae woo of Korea.

      But I think I am missing something somewhere thats why i am not able
      to cure it.

      As you all fully know that is is thru a pinced nerve and please be
      kind to help me if u can.

      smile regards

      TEJPAL

        Hi
        this is Dr Nilay Shah
        what problem you have told was nothing but sciatica pain
        which was radiating downwards
        also its root value includes L3 and L4 vertebrae
        Hence bcos of impingement of that nerve u were getiin pain in back
        and was radiating downwards
        What can be done in your case is with chiropratise nerve has to be
        decompressed only than pther treatments will help you
        bcos the rot has to be treated
        also it does not take so long as you have mentioned
        Regarding Acupuncture
        There are 5 types of it
        and you do just Su jok
        thts another reason for dealy in cure
        hope ive answered your querry

        regards
        DR. NILAY SHAH
