Lumboischialgia i.dex.; Hernia disci L5,S1 gradus laevis. The physician said that it is not for surgery and recommends physiotherapy. After the diagnosis I had a chiropractic treatment and I felt better that day. The day after I went on a business trip and severe pains started. When I came back the pain remained and I started with physiotherapies. After the fourth treatment I received severe pains and numbness in the right leg especially in the hip area, my leg blocked and I could hardly move. The physician gave me 5 injections Ambene perental, analgetig/antireumatic, one on every second day. Until now, I have done 20th physical Therapies and 5 chinesyterapi, but the pain still exist. The doctor advised my to get Diprofos injections straight in Ischiadikus. What do you think about it?
