Allan’s Story: Severe Sciatica Pain relief

This is a case study of a patient I’ve been seeing for the past 8 months. We been able to get great results and keep the pain under control so far using Dr. Tan’s balance method and he’s come a long way.


After having two failed back surgeries and a cage put in, Allan was still having severe sciatica down his leg and the back pain got so bad they ended up putting a stimulator in his spine to keep it under control.

Since there was inflammation at the surgery site he was unable to get any local treatment with massage or physio work done because it would stir up the pain.

When he first came in, he was on large doses of painkillers and very skeptical whether or not acupuncture was for him. This was one of those instances where I was able to see firsthand how acupuncture really is amazing.

I’m happy to say, after some work we were able to get rid of the shooting pain in the leg, keep the pain in control, and he no longer uses the stimulator.
