Hi Jeff,

Are you getting Lower back pain also ?

"Normally" with Sciatic there will be Lower Back Pain associated with it .

Odd that you have it NOW in both legs .

I'd be tempted to get a 2nd opinion from another GP.

Hmm !

Some interesting feedback here ! As we know traction helps some people with Lwr Back Pain. But not all as I have seen . Maybe the DRX900 is something a Bit Different to the standard Traction as we know it ? Given that an MD / GP / Physio is supervising the use of a DRX900 it " MAYBE " worth further ...
