My back muscles spasmed from too much strain while remodeling my home. The spasms pulled my spine out of alignment pinching the sciatic nerve, down my left leg. I couldn't walk, go up stairs, lift or lie down without excruciating pain shooting down through my leg. My physical medicine doctor said after x-rays and a physical exam that it would be 6-9 months before I would experience relief. Acupuncture, massage and 'tennis ball' therapy with Chantelle had me back to near normal in 2 months.Now 3 months later I'm hiking, driving and working on the house without any pain or discomfort.
